Signal Snowboards offers a model for planning school lessons about innovation. Once a month, every third Thursday , they video how they design a new model board, for example: a combined snow and surf board; a board made of sugar; with a mount for an iPad; a bass guitar for rockin'. It's cool, Teach. Check it out. You're clever and imaginative, so give it a try, at least once: fit your teaching requirements into their model for developing a new product at least once every other Thursday. Let us know how it goes!
