February 18, 2015 8:30 AM

DeWitt High School students Geoffry Croley and Ben Zamiara of the Michigan Creativity Group interviewed several champions of the Michigan "education innovation movement" at the Michigan Innovative Schools Conference on December 9, 2014. Linda Forward of the Michigan Department of Education commented on the state of Michigan K-12 education innovation. Additionally, Linda commented on the importance of getting school districts to share best practices and collaborate in order to provide all students with cutting-edge learning opportunities. The Michigan Creativity Group is excited at the prospect of working with Linda - whose focus at the MDE is on innovation and school improvement - to create more events throughout the state to showcase student and educator work

Students United: Mobile Minds Flipping Society, hosted by Jeff Croley and Jason LaFay, intends to help merge the worlds of education and business by featuring innovative programs, projects, and people in K12 education throughout Michigan and beyond. The show aims to be the voice of K12 innovation. In order to better understand what is happening in schools it is important to provide a narrative of how education is evolving. To ensure a new generation of learner is adequately prepared, driven, and passionately ready for the workforce old divides must be bridged.
