Creating Innovators’ author, Tony Wagner believes the best thing we can do for students is to teach them to be innovative thinkers and doers. Like many, Wagner also believes it is essential for schools to help the next generation become out of the box thinkers who are creators as well as problem solvers. In order to create spaces where children can learn to be innovative thinkers, schools must “make room for what ifs” within the classroom. Edutopia blogger, Suzie Boss shares a wonderful story about a K-8 school in Massachusetts that used lots of “what ifs” to give a young boy a helping hand. tlb
