In this paper an analysis of what innovation means to schools draws on a range of competing ideas to identify questions and possibilities that go with an interest in developing innovators in schools.

Next year will be one of translating this into opportunities for students and teachers. In the meantime the best of summer breaks for all northern hemisphere teacher.
