Innovation carries a lot of risks and, quite frankly, can be exhausting. But the rewards of this process far outweigh the risks.
Developing a cohort allows Innovators and Early Adopters to know that they are not alone in this path, but that there are others who have the Courage to take risks, to accept failure, and to learn quickly.
Each school has educators who are continually exploring how they can better teach their students. But often they are in different parts of the building teaching different subjects. By bringing them together for frequent check-ins, the cohort can not only share their insights with each other, but also get important support for their journey.
As this innovation cohort begins to tell their experiences to other teachers, they inspire others.
The support from the Leader is important for organizing and sustaining this cohort.
