In traditional education systems, students are required to limit their questions and compliantly follow a curriculum chosen and sequenced by others.  However, as educators, our job is to provide opportunities for our students to be innovative and creative critical thinkers which will allow them to be successful in the future.  In The Innovator's Mindset, George Couros encourages teachers and administrators to empower their learners to wonder, to explore—and to become forward-thinking leaders.  If we want innovative students, we need innovative educators. In other words, innovation begins with you.
