Innovative Academy Interview with Bo Adams

Loved the video interview above with Bo Adams. So many things he said struck a cord with me and what I want to do as we move forward.

START WITH QUESTIONS
“Questions are the waypoint on the path to wisdom.”
from Grant Lichtman’s book The Falconer

CLAIMING A SPACE & TIME
Claiming a space and a time for R&D around innovation in PreK-12.

BEHAVIORS
“We are really looking for behaviors that lay at the heart of innovation and creativity.”
Behaviors from the Innovator’s DNA – Observe, Question, Experiment, Network, and Associate

MAKING & CREATING
Making and creating for a purpose. This allows agency – a feeling of “yes, I can make my ideas a reality and they matter.
