Innovate Like a Turtle

I often talk about innovating like a turtle. Take small steps forward each day. I have a simple three-step strategy for teacher innovation that is simple and works. I've seen it transform schools and teachers' lives (like mine.)

This is a presentation about innovating like a turtle that I shared sometime back. If you flip through the slides, you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about.

Have an awesome school year!! Today we'll talk about a few things:

  • 5 Secrets to Having the Best School Year Ever
  • My personal strategy of innovation and goals for this year
  • Cool Cat Teacher's Chromebook Favorites
  • 9 Ways Writing Has Been Reinvented!

So excited to be here in Indiana with you!

This is a customized school day opener from August 2014.
