What It Takes to Innovate
Exploring the innovator mindset allows students to understand that anyone can become an innovator, and the traits and skills required can be acquired through knowledge and practice. This three-part activity involves a self-assessment and out of class exercises allowing students to practice innovative traits in their daily lives, and demonstrates that these traits are not fixed, but can be changed and improved through intentional practice. This lesson is included in the Exploring the Power of Ideas Exhibition resource.
