The Necessary Mindsets of Education Entrepreneurs

What constitutes an entrepreneurial mindset in education? This presentation will unpack and apply the terms "entrepreneurship", "innovation" and "mindset" to creating an entrepreneurial mindset, and will consider how these constructs can powerfully influence teaching and learning as well as edtech entrepreneurs. This highly interactive session will ask participants to engage in determining the attributes of an entrepreneurial mindset and to explore applications of the mindset to an innovation ecosystem.
