Innovation Catalysts: Collaboration of Traditional and Non-Traditional Schools
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM: Breakout
Room: Forum Suite (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: How do we scale and cross-pollinate innovation in K-12 schools? How do we empower teachers and students to problem solve through play, passion, and purpose while creating new-to-the-world ideas? Join this conversation with administrators of traditional and non-traditional school districts who collaborated to discover the common threads of supporting and implementing innovative practices and programs. While funding sources and state mandates differ between schools and districts, we found that regardless of the setting, many similarities of being an Innovation Catalyst do indeed exist.
