Vision sets the future direction for any organisation.
We lack a shared national vision for education and learning and how ideas, creativity and innovation can contribute to that vision. We need to constantly question what we are doing and to ask ourselves what education and learning will be like in five years time and what part will innovation play in refining and re-imagining schooling?
We must develop and communicate our shared vision and mission. Colleagues must be committed, passionate and enthusiastic and we must all work to protect those people who are shaping the future for us; trying out new ideas, breaking the rules and pushing the boundaries. We must accept risk, search out things that work and create networks of innovation and excellence.
The future is already here we simply need to find it, nurture it and make it happen in all our learning places.
