This podcast is a recording of Cathy Kyle and Susan Droke’s presentation, “Be Like Google” at the 1 Oct 2010 Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence’s fall conference in Memphis, Tennessee. The official session description was: As the economy began to slow, Google continued to post positive quarterly earnings. The New York Times headline in 2008 declared, “Google defies economy.” Maybe the truth is that Google defines the economy and leaders have much to learn about acting “Googley.” This workshop will explore Google’s Nine Notions of Innovation and how one school uses these principles and ways you may apply them to your school environment. An article written by our Headmaster and a consultant, which goes into even more depth and what our presentation is based on, is also provided.
