Innovation is a modern catchword. A search of annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission showed “companies mentioned some form of the word ‘innovation’ 33,528 times last year” (cited on washingtonpost.com). However, the focus is not about the word; it is about how we use it. Innovation can be used to describe such things as strategy, ambition, resourcefulness, creativity and leadership. They share the same goal — to create value.

This issue highlights the innovative, creative learning and teaching that occurs in our classrooms and beyond. The outcome is deep change for our students, the community and the world.
