innovators blog hop #3 – what if

That is certainly a great list of “what if” questions to ponder (see below).  After some consideration,  I would choose “what if we promoted risk taking to our staff and students and modelled it openly as administrators”.

I landed on this selection because I believe risk taking is a necessary ingredient connected to other elements of progress including culture shift and change of practice – both key elements of educational progress in my view as nothing is gained by protecting the status quo.

Within this framework,  all of these ‘connecting notions’ come into play:  experimenting, remixing, retrying, reflecting, (rapidly) iterating, continuous improvement and continuous learning.  I think a healthy dose of open sharing is needed too.

A work and learning environment that draws on risk taking and creativity fuels engagement and satisfaction.  What are you waiting for?  Take a risk and engage!!!
