How can education support students to flourish?

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world – Nelson Mandela Acquiring Education helps people think, feel, and behave in a way that contributes to their success, and improves not only their personal satisfaction but also their community. Education develops human personality, thoughts, dealing with others and prepares people for life.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovation in education means allowing imagination to flourish and not be afraid to try new things. Sometimes these new things fail but it's awesome when they are a success. Without the right attitude, innovation would just be a word and the art of education would miss out on some great accomplishments. Education should not be the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

1) Roots of Empathy 2) World Savy 3) Universe Awareness
