Divergent EDU Chapter Seven

Chapter 7: Innovation Teams

Summary: I formed Innovation Teams as a way to provide teachers with the support they needed during the time I was a technology integrator. The teams functioned differently than the typical tech teams as we studied innovative teaching pedagogies and analyzed our own assumptions in order to bring innovative teaching into their classrooms.
