Teachers by nature are interested in innovation, writes Terry Heick, director of curriculum for TeachThought and social learning facilitator for the Institute for Habits of Mind. In this blog post, he lists several ingredients of innovation, including a sense of priority, selflessness, time and energy, existing models, trust and a willingness to take risks. He cites project-based learning, which "promotes innovation in education by making room for it."
