smiley FORUM: Why are innovator’s mind-sets and in-depth collaboration and cooperation crucial in resourcing ILEs? | NAPP Kōrero 6 2016 April 26 - June 26.

We can’t resource our ILEs* successfully unless we’ve explored innovation and collaboration in-depth in schools and communities of learning as we address the cultural, social and economic needs of our learners.

Definition: “An innovative learning environment (ILE) is the complete physical, social and pedagogical context in which learning is intended to occur. Having the right property, and flexible learning spaces (FLS) in particular, is one part of creating an ILE. The ILE Assessment Tool will help you assess your learning spaces against ILE criteria.” From MOE website Resourcing Flexible Learning Spaces  

Almost all principals and BOTs face budget constraints and work within a system that expects more and better results with less or limited funding.

  • Leading Innovation requires principals to focus on innovation, “inside the boxes of their school’s resources and their community of learning’s resources”.
  • Leading Collaboration and Co-operation needs to travel from, “compliance and engagement to empowerment.”
  • Principals need an Innovator’s Mind-set.
