the Innovation Foundation Team
Our Approach To Teaching
is guided by the belief that innovation is a transformative force for good, and the best innovations follow the moral imperative to serve humanity. Everyone has the ability to imagine a better world, and we believe education is the force that empowers people to manifest what they can imagine, bringing powerful new ideas to solving real-world problems.
Bringing innovation into the classroom
The Innovation foundation builds curricula that gives students opportunities to experiment and explore. This curricula includes all the classroom supplies and instructional supports, and puts students on a path to understanding emerging technologies that are remaking the world.
Developing the innovation mindset
The IF curriculum uses a problem-first approach to learning. Students encounter and master STEM principles in the context of creating solutions to problems they define and frame with their peers. In that context, failure of an experiment is a valuable learning opportunity, and students will learn to shed their fear of failure and develop a new mindset that sees only opportunities for continued growth.
Building excitement for lifelong learning
The IF curriculum is designed to provide students the experience of success across multiple domains using multiple competencies. Some students may excel at managing instruments gathering accurate measurements and observations. Others may excel at listening to many different ideas and combining them into powerful insights. These are just two of the skills students will use and refine over a lifetime, and our approach to teaching invites everyone to find their best way to contribute to the changing world.
IF builds curricula that educate through the lens of technologically enabled innovation. IF Education curricula are built for every grade level and offered as a complement to the core curriculum or embedded within the core curricula. As part of IF Education, we offer a teacher training program that equips educators with the information necessary to understand, embrace, and teach innovation at the pace of change.
IF offers a mentorship program for students and teachers to increase psychological capital while encouraging imagination, creativity, and empowerment. IF Mentorship is designed to support the worldwide base of students and teachers to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
IF seeks partnership opportunities to accelerate the adoption of education through the lens of innovation. IF Partnership is designed to align with organizations to engage students, teachers, and communities; provide goods and services; and produce and manufacture content.
IF provides funding through grants, scholarships, and special purpose projects that we believe will advance technology, innovation, and education. IF Funding is designed to aid organizations and people in their understanding of innovation and pursuit of education.
