How Innovative Educators Plug into Global Ideas

George Couros said he would argue to his death that Twitter was useless when he started with it. But, now he sees. Should every teacher be connecting online? How can we shift our way of thinking to get information that will really help us teach? George also says that principals who say that teachers have to “make time to do it on their own time” are making a mistake. (George has a genius idea for this one about how to make connecting a cultural thing and give teachers an extra hour to sleep in!)

[callout]George Couros is joining us for a series of shows on Every Classroom Matters where we talk about the eight characteristics of the Innovator’s Mindset (George’s new book.) This is part 4 of the series. See the full series here. [/callout]
