Innovation is…

  1. a new idea, method, or device : NOVELTY
  2. the introduction of something new

Innovation can refer to something new or to a change made to an existing product, idea, or field.

Example: One might say that the first telephone was an invention, the first cellular telephone either an invention or an innovation, and the first smartphone an innovation.


1. Why is it important to be innovative?

2. Who or what inspires you to be innovative?

3. How has technology helped you be innovative?

4. How is innovation approached by different people around you?

5. What opportunities do you have to be innovative in school and outside of school? Who can help you?

*The same questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.

Tweet and Talk Expert on Panel: Virginia “Ginny” Duncan

Dr. Virginia Duncan has been an Instructional and Technology Coach in KS since August 2011. Before coaching teachers full time, Ginny taught English, History, and Drama at the middle school level in CA.
Ginny is most passionate about helping teachers through their professional journey and promoting outside-the-box opportunities for student creativity. Ginny has worked to transform professional learning for teachers by implementing innovative professional learning models and strategies that change the way teachers learn and grow, and supporting teachers with how they can change their classrooms using those strategies.

Outside of her time as an instructional coach, Ginny teaches Musical Theater and Acting for Dancers at a local dance studio. With the recent and drastic shift away from public performances, they needed to think differently and approach performing in new ways – transforming traditional stage dances and productions into unique videos and movies. Ginny consistently helps the teachers, as well as the performers, she works with approach challenges in new ways.
