After a successful first season of our popular podcast, Sparkchasers (thanks for making us new and notable in iTunes!), we’re finally ready to share our next installment. In this season, Greg and I explore the innovation design process. In addition, these 10 episodes, released weekly, will discuss what innovation really means, how it works, and share details of how anyone can be part of an innovative process. We can’t wait to share our personal stories of failures and successes, and even feature some special guests.
Today’s episode kicks off our season by defining innovation. Along with, looking at some common definitions of this term in education. Also, we dive into the first 90 days of an idea, and how artists are truly the world’s greatest innovators.
