Innovative Pedagogy creates students experiences leveraging best practice which encourage communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills.
The Office of Innovation at Reynoldsburg City School District believes the essential focus of pedagogy, the study and practice of how best to teach, is on content standards. However, engagement in these standards through Innovative Pedagogy is not the continuation of ineffective traditional practice. Using what has worked and finding new practices for what has not worked, generates a continuous improvement that can be practically implemented. Part of this endeavor is risk-taking while effectively assessing progress and having the agility to navigate the best course for students.
Practices such as, Design Thinking, Blended Learning, Embedded VR, MakerEd, and Transdisciplinary Problem Based Learning engage students in content standards in ways that deepen understanding and retention of knowledge individualized for each student.
We need a pedagogy free from fear and focused on the magic of children's innate quest for information and understanding. ~ Sugata Mitra
