Innovating to Learn, Learning to Innovate

OECD economies have experienced the transformation from their traditional industrial base to the knowledge era, in which learning and innovation are central. Yet, many of today’s schools have not caught up: they continue to operate as they did in the earlier decades of the 20 century. This book summarises and discusses key findings from the learning sciences, shedding light on the cognitive and social processes that can be used to redesign classrooms to make them highly effective learning environments. It explores concrete examples in OECD countries, from alternative schools to specific cases in Mexico, in which the actors are seeking to break the mould and realise the principles emerging from learning science research. The book also asks how these insights can inspire educational reform for the knowledge era, in which optimising learning is the driving aim and in which innovation is both the widespread catalyst of change and the defining result.

This chapter explores the various dynamics of the processes of innovation and change. The author suggests that it is through the examination of actual endeavours that truly innovative procedures may be successfully activated. To this end, she defines four phases of innovation in the context of the transformation of education, which are illustrated utilising the four Mexican case studies.
