Together with Nipissing University’s Schulich School of Education, the Rideau Hall Foundation launched three educational resources in 2018 that teachers can use to teach innovation skills. The E4I resources help educators guide learners through the four phases of the Innovation Cycle: inquire, ideate, incubate and implement. The resources support K-12 curriculum requirements across Canada.
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with D2L, a leading education software company based in Kitchener, Ontario. We have joined forces to make our #EducationforInnovation teacher resources more interactive and available on the Brightspace LMS!
In the spirit of recognizing aspiring Canadian innovators, we have created an Innovation Showcase. Once your students have completed their innovation projects submit them here to be featured on the Innovation Showcase.ADD YOUR PROJECT

Education for innovation in action
Through the Education for Innovation resources, I have seen first hand how one idea for an innovation project can improve students’ confidence and skills, and also inspire them to take their learning beyond the classroom walls.- Presley Sibbick
These innovation-related experiences created much new learning and awareness. Most importantly, we created a community of innovators in our classroom. Children learned that innovation requires collaboration and teamwork. I would often start the activity time by saying, “Let the innovation begin” and the children then knew that teamwork time was beginning!- Judy Scholtz, Junior and Senior Kindergarten/Early Years Teacher. St. Nicholas School, Waterloo, ON
