Don't look now, but your students want more than the three R's for their school experience. Innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and the Maker Movement are changing what our students want to do and be in the future beyond what we can imagine today. Schools and teachers need to figure out how to respond to the DIY generation of makers emerging and be prepared to reshape education. In an information-rich age of smart phones, online learning, coding, gamification, apps, Internet of Things and digital badges, are today's schools ready for tomorrow's students?

Closing The Innovation Gap For Business Sustainability, Wayne Philip Stamler Jan 2016

Closing The Innovation Gap For Business Sustainability, Wayne Philip Stamler

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Senior business leaders may deliberately impede innovation or inadvertently fail at creating a culture of innovation to foster new product development. The gap between desired and achieved levels of innovation is cause for concern. Addressing the innovation gap may require new ways of thinking from senior executives and a departure from a locked-in mindset to make the linkage between innovation, branding, and financial performance. In this quantitative research study, multiple regression analyses were used to examine and analyze the relationship between innovation rankings, brand valuation, and economic sustainability to address possible reasons for an innovation gap. The theoretical framework of ...

All Theses, Dissertations, and Other Capstone Projects

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the impact of organizational centralization in higher education technology support units on institutional innovativeness. The centralization tools used for the present study included measures developed by Hage & Aiken (1971), Kaluzny, et al. (1974), and Ferrell & Skinner (1988). The innovativeness measures were established by Hansen & Birkinshaw's (2007) tool for evaluating innovation value chain activities in organizations. Data were gathered from a nation-wide sample (n = 303) of IT workers at 38 research one institutions in the United States.

Political Economy, Capitalism And The Rule Of Law, David Barnhizer, Daniel D. Barnhizer Dec 2015

Political Economy, Capitalism And The Rule Of Law, David Barnhizer, Daniel D. Barnhizer

David Barnhizer


There is a fundamental symbiotic relationship between a society’s form of economic activity and the nature of the Rule of Law system that supports, facilitates and limits that activity.  At the heart of the interactive relationship is a dynamic by which power is created, allocated, denied and adapted over time.  The core fact is that of change and transformation of the nature of power and the identities of those who control it.  Nothing in such a system remains static and, unlike other systems, it is the natural intent of the system to reward its participants for creative contributions that ...

Britta McKenna

Investing in the innovation pipeline today translates to Illinois business tomorrow.

This is particularly important in Illinois where developing – and retaining – top talent will be a key driver of the state’s knowledge-based economy. There is hard work ahead reimagining what education should look like to support this budding ...

Future-Focused Leadership: Three Mega-Trends Influencing Distance Learning, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

While many continue to question the skyrocketing costs and value of a college education, future-focused leaders are recreating learning experiences by blending technology with the human experience. What does the future of distance learning look like, taste like and feel like? It can be difficult to predict the future of education as the world continues to evolve at an increasingly rapid pace; however, distance learning administrators can use a future-focused leadership approach, which includes examining megatrends, to plan for the future. Megatrends are global shifts that influence society, the economy and the environment. The purpose of this paper is to ...

The research question posed for this study was: Within the participating institutions, how did online education get started and what was the process for its development?

Findings from this research indicated that, for an institution to successfully implement online education, four elements emerged: (a) some form of infrastructure needed to be in place that could support online education, (b) a latent force, referred to as ...

Toward A Closer Integration Of Law And Computer Science, Christopher S. Yoo Jan 2014

Toward A Closer Integration Of Law And Computer Science, Christopher S. Yoo

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

Legal issues increasingly arise in increasingly complex technological contexts. Prominent recent examples include the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA), network neutrality, the increasing availability of location information, and the NSA’s surveillance program. Other emerging issues include data privacy, online video distribution, patent policy, and spectrum policy. In short, the rapid rate of technological change has increasingly shown that law and engineering can no longer remain compartmentalized into separate spheres. The logical response would be to embed the interaction between law and policy deeper into the fabric of both fields. An essential step ...

Organizing Business For Sustainability: Learning In An Emerging Field Of Practice, Molly Victoria Shea Jan 2013

Organizing Business For Sustainability: Learning In An Emerging Field Of Practice, Molly Victoria Shea

School of Education Graduate Theses & Dissertations

All too often conversations about education and learning assume that we know what learning is, how it happens, and to what ends the process should be directed. Learning, in this case, was not confined to classroom activities, but happened as students reorganized material and ideational tools to across settings to create new opportunities for emerging expertise. Designing for learning where the end goals are well defined is challenging enough. But, how do we design for learning if the end goal is to solve problems where solutions do not yet exist? Little is known about the process of organizing for innovation ...
