Through my experiences as a teacher candidate, I strongly believe that the Education for Innovation resources are an essential component to cultivating a culture of innovation in our schools. Innovation is not an isolated learning experience that fits into one portion of our instructional day. Instead, it is an ongoing process that continually takes place in the ideas and actions of our students. As teachers, we need to provide students with innovative opportunities that foster learning and support their passions and interests. 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.

Canadian youth are naturally inquisitive and innovative!
The Education for Innovation (E4I) resources are designed to guide learners through the various phases of the Innovation Cycle, from Inquiry to Implementation. Educators may use these resources with youth to develop innovation and problem-solving skills in classrooms and other settings. Strategies, templates, and assessment tools can be adapted by educators to any subject or curriculum area. Let’s celebrate and cultivate Canada’s culture of innovation!
