A framework for inspiring inventiveness
A framework for inspiring inventiveness?
What we do?
The Framework for Inspiring Inventiveness is a set of resources, developed by Opal School and Project Zero, that helps learning communities seeking to prioritize inventiveness. Find the resources at
Why we do it?
In this time of massive environmental, political, cultural, technological, and economic change, prioritizing children’s inventiveness is a critical pedagogical shift. Children are unlikely to emerge as innovators - as "super-encounterers", to use Pagan Kennedy's phrase - if their teachers see their work as bureaucrats, delivering scripts written by others. Learning communities seeking to prioritize inventiveness are, themselves, engaging in an act of invention: they recognize a need in the world, design a response to that need, and bring into existence a novel solution.
These resources support that pedagogical transformation.
