InnovateK12 is a software and consultancy company that helps school leaders grow a culture of innovation through a blend of crowd-sourced innovation events, human-centered design workshops, and lean start-up methodology to grow and develop high-impact ideas at little-to-no cost. InnovateK12 helps educational leaders empower those closest to the work, resulting in a school and/or district that celebrates innovation and embraces change.
“Joining the cohort gives you access to software that helps to manage the crowdsourcing of ideas. More importantly, the districts in the cohort are very willing to share successes and failures to help your district implement your own crowd-sourced innovation event. I definitely recommend attending the summit and learning what it is all about.” –Scott Shinaberry, National Board Certified Teacher, Upper Arlington Schools, OH
The purpose of this strategic partnership is to build connections and promote the excellent work of educational organizations who are achieving innovative, progressive change for the greater good and who can help meet the needs of our clients. We would be happy to make a formal introduction to InnovateK12 for interested parties.
