The Learning Innovation Cycle How Disruption Creates Lasting Change - 2 views

  •  
    "In education, most of the talk around disruptive innovation revolves around education technology, owing to the potential scale of these technologies, and desperation of education to revise itself. But innovation doesn't necessarily have to be a matter of economics, as Christensen originally thought of the term, nor of technology, which is the most tempting angle. It can, but there are other disruptors that can lead to innovation that have little to do with either. What might be more interesting than the disruptors, then, might be the process itself. "

P2P Foundation » Blog Archive » How Different Is Your Bow-tie? - 1 views

  • As these systems evolve, the number of inputs and outputs generally increases. Each time a new node is added to the network, the number of potential connections required scales exponentially
  • Furthermore, because there is only one standard, there is no incentive for innovation, which means that the system cannot evolve.
  • Single standards are notoriously difficult to overcome or dislodge, even when they become ludicrously inefficient, as is the case with the Western “QWERTY” keyboard layout.
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • the system has great difficulty overcoming its own internal structure and adapting to the change.
  • Complex systems of this type, that are too loosely structurally coupled, maximize their openness to innovation but do so entirely at the cost of being able to exploit those innovations when they are useful
  • a panarchy
  • The bow-tie structure manages these tensions by occupying an “edge of chaos” zone in between too much rigidity and too much flexibility, between too little diversity, and too much.
  • There is a need to capitalize on potential efficiencies in one’s current environment while at the same time remaining flexible enough to adapt if the environment changes
  • confusing the necessary cluster of evolving core elements with a “standard
  • Future networks operate on multiple standards in the core — optimal levels of infrastructure arrived at by open innovation in the periphery that makes its way into the core as adoption and usage increase.
  • widely agreed upon cultural understandings and practices.

Making room for innovation | Dangerously Irrelevant - 0 views

  •  
    Innovation isn't about structuring a process to lead to an outcome so much as it's about creating space -- both elbow room, the space to roam free of bureaucratic rules and red tape, and head room, the freedom to see differently, think wildly, and aim higher.

A culture of innovation requires trust and resilience - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    Two quotes by Albert Einstein point to the importance of creating a culture within our schools (and organisations) that encourages experimentation, innovation, tinkering and indeed failure. If we are serious about embracing change, exploring new approaches, maximising the possibilities of new technologies, applying lessons from new research and truly seek to prepare our students for a new work order, we must become organisations that encourage learning from failure

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: Embracing Innovation - FOSS in Schools @neisd - 0 views

  •  
    Students are using a dual-boot machine with UbuntuLinux and Windows XP. I love this account of how he got the change going at a Technology magnet school...note the focus is on bringing innovative experiences to students rather than making it easier for District Technology Department staff to do their job, which unfortunately, is what keeps GNU/Linux out of many school districts: The Rudd laptop scheme damaged the use of linux in schools in Aus. Maybe this will help.

» Top 100 Articles of 2011 C4LPT - 3 views

  •  
    i wonder if anyone actually reads anymore? plenty of evidence in these 100 articles why innovation based on CoPs, edupreneurs, outputs, valuing behaviour change we want to see and student centred GBL pull learning not course inputs, packaged content, event based TPL, 2005 ala 2nd life, push teaching and traditional boring LMS use will see some projects fly and others crash and burn. Also reinforces why fundamentally old thinking will fail if you just put lipstick on the e-pig and call it innovative.
