Entrepreneurial Mindset in Education

Session 4
Jenny Zapf — Penn GSE

We'll work together in small groups to create working definitions, differentiate our ideas, and apply new constructs all while drawing from real-world examples in education. Each group will discuss and then define/draw their responses to each concept prompt. This will be followed by a gallery walk where we gather community data and track trends. We’ll then come together to share learnings, challenge assumptions, and create new definitions that can be used to help us understand, seed and fuel innovation in education.

Our team will share research from leading thinkers on mindset (Dweck, MacMillian), creative disruption (Schumpeter), disruptive innovation (Christiansen) and entrepreneurship (Ihrig, Shane, Newbold & Erwin). We’ll explore tools – i.e., CreativeDifference.Ideo.com, BetterandFaster.com and EMindsetProfile.com - that can capture data on innovation in education and track entrepreneurial mindset in organizations and schools.

Conversational Practice

See examples above. Also, time permitting, we'll invite participants to complete a short real-time innovation assessment and then discuss results.
