Innovate: It’s a VERB – #IMMOOC

To be honest, I don’t really like the word “innovation.” It’s a noun, a label.  After something is invented or created or built, someone announces, “THAT is an innovation.”

People are always asking what it is, “how should we define innovation?”

Well, maybe we shouldn’t.

Maybe instead of trying to define innovation, we should just innovate.   Take action.  Go for it.  Take a leap.  Make things better.  Do something!

I just read a great post by Kelli McCoy about her journey from technology integration to teaching like a PIRATE.  She is taking action, going for it, trying new strategies to make things better for her kids.

That’s what it means to innovate:  it’s a verb.
