Innovation in Action WHY DO INNOVATIONS FAIL?
Read then comment on the following 10 reasons for innovation failure. Can you identify any other major reasons:

Top 10 Reasons for Innovation Failure
Source: http://www.innovationnetwork.biz/library/BigTenInnovationKillers.htm WHY DO INNOVATIONS FAIL?

♦ Not creating a culture that supports innovation
♦ Not getting buy-in and ownership from business unit managers
♦ Not having a widely understood, system-wide process
♦ Not allocating resources to the process
♦ Not tying projects to company strategy
♦ Not spending enough time and energy on the fuzzy front-end
♦ Not building sufficient diversity into the process
♦ Not developing criteria and metrics in advance
♦ Not training and coaching innovation teams idea management system
♦ Not having an idea management system

Source: http://www.innovationnetwork.biz/library/BigTenInnovationKillers.htm Ten Practical Steps to Keep Your Innovation System Alive & Well

1. Remove fear from your organization. Innovation means doing something new, something that may fail. If people fear failing, they will not innovate.
2. Make innovation part of the performance review system for everyone. Ask them what they will create or improve in the coming year and then track their progress.
3. Document an innovation process and make sure everyone understands it as well as his or her role in it.
4. Build in enough looseness into the system for people to explore new possibilities and collaborate with others inside and outside the organization.
5. Make sure that everyone understands the corporate strategy and that all innovation efforts are aligned with it. However, also create a process for handling the outlier ideas that don’t fit the strategy but are too good to throw away.

6. Teach people to scan the environment for new trends, technologies and changes in customer mindsets.
7. Teach people the critical importance of diversity of thinking styles, experience, perspectives and expertise. Expect diversity in all activities related to innovation.
8. Good criteria can focus ideation; however, overly restrictive criteria can stifle ideation and perpetuate assumptions and mindsets from the past. Spend the time necessary upfront to develop market and success-related parameters that will take you into the future.
9. Innovation teams are different from “regular” project teams. They need different tools and different mindsets. Provide enough training and coaching so that when people are working on an innovation team, they can be successful.
10. Buy or develop an idea management system that captures ideas in a way that encourages people to build on and evaluate new possibilities.

Compare your ideas with Joyce Wycoff's at:

http://www.innovationnetwork.biz/library/BigTenInnovationKillers.htm http://www.innovationnetwork.biz/mission/audit.html Complete the Innovations survey: What do you see are the major reasons for innovation failure and success in EDUCATION?
Viewing the school or your workplace as an organization, how can we use these reasons and steps to avoid or reduce failure? Include other ideas to support innovation.

Exploring success in innovations - discuss in groups. In the 2nd part of today's session groups will reflect on issues, then upload group reflections your Group Blog SITES M2 Research Context

Second International Information Technology in Education Study or SITES
SITES - conducted under

International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement IEA - http://www.iea.nl/ SITES M2 – a comparative study of innovative pedagogical practices using technology (IPPUTS) Why introduce ICT into the curriculum?
About ICT – as a subject of study
With ICT – make learning more effective
Through ICT – new goals & new processes in education for the information society/ knowledge economy

Education & society needs -KBE

See article: http://www.socialistproject.ca/relay/relay14_education.pdf 21st Century Competencies
See - http://www.iste.org/standards.aspx

Premise: new abilities needed for the KBE-
Knowledge-Based Economy
what are these abilities? “Innovative” as locally defined

Promote active and independent learning
Competencies and technological skills to search for, organize, and analyze information, and communicate and express their ideas
Collaborative, project-based learning involving complex, extended, real-world-like problems
Individualized, customized instruction
Address issues of equity, incl. gender, ethnic, geographic or socioeconomic
“Break down the walls” of the classroom: time, space, who participates in teaching
Improve social cohesiveness and understanding
Kosma (2003) IPPUT Pedagogical features
extended learning task over a period of months
deeply engaging, personally meaningful/relevant for learners
involvement of significant others outside of the classroom in the learning process
availability of suitable facilitation Questions examined
Is there any meaningful way of comparing levels of innovation across cases?
Which should be the focus: ICT or pedagogy? Or does it matter?
Can such a comparison contribute to our knowledge and understanding of ICT use and pedagogical innovation? Questions tackled
Are there some common features or models of pedagogical practice found across the international selection of IPPUT case studies?
What are the most important dimensions/ features for studying ICT-supported pedagogical innovations?
What type of analysis will contribute most to our understanding of IPPUTs, and for dissemination to practitioners? How do we compare innovations?

Compare the extent of change in the school brought about by the adoption of ICT
Analysis scheme:
4 domains of innovation: space/time configuration, student roles, teacher roles, curriculum impact
3 levels of innovation: assimilation, transition, transformation
5-point likert scale for scoring, inter-coder reliability check
Mioduser et al. (2003) How do we compare innovations?

6 dimensions of classroom practices identified as most important of any curriculum implementation using ICT:

Intended curriculum goals of the innovative practices
Pedagogical role(s) of the teachers
Role(s) of the students
Nature and sophistication of the ICT used
Connectedness of the classroom
Learning outcomes exhibited by learner during learning http://tel.cite.hku.hk/ Exploring challenges to and success factors for innovations in education in your groups. Reflect on issues, then upload group and individual reflections to your Group Blog. You may want to do this with reference to Joyce Wycoff's comments discussed earlier. 6310 (2)
