The answer to creating innovative teaching and learning opportunities lies within you! Every educator faces constraints—from budget restrictions to predetermined curriculum to “one-size-fits-all” mandatory assessments. The question is, how can you, as a teacher or administrator, ensure that regulations and limitations don’t impede authentic learning?

In Innovate Inside the Box, George Couros and Katie Novak provide informed insight on creating purposeful learning opportunities for all students. By combining the power of the Innovator’s Mindset and Universal Design for Learning (UDL), they empower educators to create opportunities that will benefit every learner.

Praise for Innovate Inside the Box!

"If you're looking to bring creativity to student learning amid all the constraints educators face, this is the book for you."

Daniel Pink, author of Drive

"An incredible book! Innovate Inside the Box speaks to educators who are the change agents in their sphere of influence."

Sarah Thomas, PhD, founder of EduMatch

The more I learn about inclusive education, the more that I understand the critical role of innovation, and the need to give ourselves the permission to make the space to try something new. Innovate Inside the Box, supports classrooms and schools to make these steps in a way that honors the multiple perspectives of both innovation and a foundational principal of inclusive education - Universal Design for Learning. The two go hand in hand perfectly, and I cannot imagine a better pair to share their stories and insight. Thanks George and Katie, this is brilliant!"

Shelley Moore, Author of "ONE Without the Other: Stories of unity through diversity and inclusion

"Innovate Inside the Box builds upon the big ideas and framework in Innovator's Mindset, but goes much deeper.  As a Teacher-Librarian who supports many subject areas, I appreciate the many practical takeaways, ideas, and classroom examples grounded in Universal Design for Learning which can be found throughout, but especially in Part 2. I also really love how the authors' voices and experiences are complementary and yet very different. Innovate Inside the Box is an absolute must read." 

Jennifer Casa-Todd, Teacher-Librarian and author of "Social LEADia"
