George Couros innovators mindset empathy

Teachers go into professional development and they complain. This is boring! There’s nothing here I can use! I don’t have time to learn anything new! But these same teachers who have such high demands of those who teach them — go into the classroom and deliver a lesson that could bore the ticks off a hound dog. No pizzaz! No joy! No intrigue! WE CAN DO BETTER. Listen now.

George Couros is beginning a series of shows on Every Classroom Matters where we talk about the eight characteristics of the Innovator’s Mindset (George’s new book.) Today we’re talking about empathy. (There were so many great quotes, I’ve made quite a few images to tweet and pin to Pinterest.)

Have empathy for your students! Design awesome learning experiences. You can do this, teacher! If not, why not?
