9 What does innovation look like in the world of education?

10 1st take-home message: To be innovation, it must be transformational!

11 Creativity: The aptitude of the mind to construct or formulate ideas, concepts or images in which the essential newness or freshness is embodied in new relationships, associations or linkages. Discovery: The uncovering, elucidation, recognition or advancement in understanding of new scientific phenomena or knowledge. (Some preexisting state of affairs is now somehow known to us.) Innovation: Is the use of knowledge, either from discovery or from some widely known knowledge base, to achieve an output that is new or novel (e.g., a new product or process). (Pragmatic.)

12 2 nd Take-home message: Innovation is…. NOT an accident It is driven by a system of principles and practices which support and encourage the coupling of systems and creativity to solve a problem.

13 Elements of Innovation Values/Vision Culture Networks Personal expectations Metrics Customer/Market need Differentiation (transformation)

14 Role of innovative leaders (traditional) Come from the trenches Champion Understand innovation culture Prioritization/efficiency not dominant Informal Role model: William McKnight

15 As our business grows, it becomes increasingly necessary to delegate responsibility and to encourage men and women to exercise their initiative. This requires considerable tolerance. Those men and women … are going to want to do their jobs in their own way. McKnight Principles (3rd take-home message) - William McKnight, 1948 Mistakes will be made. But if a person is essentially right, the mistakes he or she makes are not as serious in the long run as the mistakes management will make if it undertakes to tell those in authority exactly how they must do their jobs. Management that is destructively critical when mistakes are made kills initiative. And it is essential that we have many people with initiative if we are to continue to grow. (Risk takers)

16 Whats expected of todays leaders Recognize (and declare) what works and doesnt work…not always easy. Global perspective. Model change in the face of change. Goal: sustainable innovation in a rapidly changing world (customers, employees, nature of org.). Much is about metrics, incentives, role models. Role of spending. How does this drive innovation?

17 Curriculum of Innovation The purpose of these so-called courses is to fix in your minds the basic elements understood and practiced around the world by the most innovative organizations.

30 11/11/10 Innovation 601 (graduate) The thing you should work hardest at is to build confidence in your people. Be a teacher.

31 11/11/10 Innovation 701 Be personally committed to making yourself and those around you excited about innovating. Be positive.

32 11/11/10 Be... Open to change Hungry to learn Anxious to move quickly on a new idea

33 © 3M All Rights Reserved. Questions to Ask Yourself About Innovation Does everyone in your organization know how to define innovation? Who are the innovators in your organization? Does your organization have an oral history that helps employees learn about innovation? What are your platforms (content, process, culture, capabilities)? Do you have both a long and short term mindset (bi-visual)? What volunteer activities foster innovation and how can these activities be encouraged for your members? Does your organization recognize and reward innovative achievements in a meaningful way?

34 …foster greater interest in STEM Disclaimer: Its important to state that we dont expect every student to become a scientist or engineer, but that every Lasallian trained student will have a greater understanding and appreciation for STEM than their predecessors. We also want more scientists and engineers!

35 Keys to getting students interested in STEM Role of –Parents –Teachers –Science community (actions, role models) –Local communities & leaders –Press –Media (TV, movies, advertising) –Etc.

36 Some program examples to consider… 3M STEP Program 3M TWIST 3M Ingenuity Grants

37 Some partnerships to consider… Project Lead the Way FIRST Lego League & FIRST Robotics Teacher Resource Centers (e.g. SMM)

38 In summary… We wont have innovation in our schools unless you embody it. Leadership, cross cultural capability, and communication skills are part of STEM. Partnerships give necessary leverage.
