CREATING INNOVATORS by Tony Wagner is a book for parents and educators who want to be intentionally invested in helping the next generation be successful. Wagner shows that the world we live in is one in which people who want to be successful must learn to solve problems in innovative ways. The book explores what it takes to raise up future innovators.
I appreciate this book because it makes the case for innovation as a vital value in society. I'm a parent of three children, and I want my children to grow up to impact the world in great ways.
This book will be helpful in the hands of educators because it shows how schools often work against teaching students to be creative. Wagner includes a look into the lives of young innovators and what shaped them to be that way. The book also includes QR codes for videos that supplement the content of the book.
