In 2018, the Rideau Hall Foundation launched a series of educational resources to support educators in teaching their students skills for innovative thinking, with the goal of developing a culture of innovation among young Canadians. This Education for Innovation (E4I) resources help teachers guide learners through the four phases of the Innovation Cycle: inquire, ideate, incubate, and implement. The resources support K-12 curriculum requirements across Canada.
From discovering great Canadian innovations to exploring fun activities that encourage problem-solving and innovative thinking, these resources are a valuable tool to inspire the next generation of young innovators.
To raise awareness for these valuable resources and how they are being used to drive innovation among young Canadians, we’ve partnered with five parents and educators across Canada to showcase how they are using E4I at home and in the classroom. Check out the posts below to learn more!
