Instilling innovation through teachers rather than learning tools

When a teacher takes the initiative to be innovative, it can dramatically change the dynamic of a classroom. It could increase a student’s level of comfort. By having a teacher who knows how to connect with their students on a personal and professional level, learning jumps from serious to fun. In the global education sector, there’s always a new and creative way to command a student’s attention. From expensive interactive systems to pricey flex-furniture, schools are continually using their budget to improve their learning environments. But what if classroom innovation starts with the teacher? Rather than investing money into flashy new furnishings, why not spend it on informative teacher workshops and innovative transactions of learning techniques and styles? By instilling innovation through teachers, the demand may be less for learning equipment investments. A language arts and social studies teacher in Southern Ohio, named Daniel Bailey, recently suggested that teachers should run through some exercises of their own before starting the curriculum mapping process each year.
