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.

Using the E4I resources to help students understand Canadian Medical Innovations

The grade 7 innovators had to make connections to how the innovations made life happier, safer and healthier.
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!
