Technology Engagement/Expectations Emerging Occupations Innovation Access Points Content Design Budgets New Opinions on Higher Ed
Asia Challenges U.S. Innovation Leadership, New Report ShowsAsia Challenges U.S. Innovation Leadership, New Report Shows A major report released last week by the National Science Board concludes that U.S. global leadership in science and technology is declining as foreign nations – especially China and other Asian countries – rapidly develop their national innovation systems.released last week The World’s Leading Nations for Innovation and Technology Seemingly everywhere you look, one or another pundit is predicting the imminent decline of the United States and the end of the American Century. Thomas Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum’s That Used to Be Us paints a picture of an economically emergent China that is catching up to us on every front where it hasn’t already surpassed us.That Used to Be Us Innovation and Stem Education https://www.bebr.ufl.edu/articles/innovation-and-stem-education The United States was once the world leader by most measures, particularly in the development and use of information and communications technologies which are so central to modern economies. But recent indicators suggest that its status as an innovation leader is no longer assured.
The digital natives really know technology Creativity cannot be taught Necessity drives all innovation Everyone is Innovative Innovation is a Technical Skill Any New Approach is Innovation
How do YOU define Innovation?
Webster's Definition of INNOVATION 1: the introduction of something new 2: a new idea, method, or device : in·no·va·tion·al adjective Pasted from
Innovation War Stories: –What drives Innovation in Education? Strategies: –A Deliberate Investment in Developing Innovation Talent and Capacity: Create or expand on new uses of technology, instructional innovation, and other best practices currently used by faculty innovators. Create an incentive system that provides opportunity for faculty and staff to benefit from new practices and solutions created by faculty either personally or to their respective program area budgets. Creation of programs to train and develop innovators to focus on new solutions, applications of proven approaches to change and innovation and new way to manage change. What is the most innovative Education event in history ?
According to Rolf Smith you: –Begin by beginning. –Get to know your colleagues –Define the Summit – Where do you want to be? –Determine the Route toward success –Begin your Expedition: –Be Proactive, Adaptive and Responsive –Be Meticulous (journals and blue slips) Source: 7 Levels of Change, Third Edition, Rolf Smith, 2007, Tapestry Press
Law of Conservation of Innovation The total amount of innovation is a constant resource that is available within all individuals and in an organization but it can only be changed between two states. –Potential innovation emerges to a state of kinetic innovation. –Necessity changes potential innovation into kinetic innovation or the organization fails or never achieves its full potential. –Complacency changes kinetic innovation back into a state of potential innovation until the next need emerges.
According to Rolf Smith there are 7 Levels of Change: –Level 1 – Effectiveness: Doing the right things –Level 2 – Efficiency: Doing things right –Level 3 – Improving: Doing things better –Level 4 – Cutting: Doing away with things –Level 5 – Copying: Doing things others are doing –Level 6 – Different: Doing things no one else is doing –Level 7 – Breakout!: Doing things that can’t be done Source: 7 Levels of Change, Third Edition, Rolf Smith, 2007, Tapestry Press
