"Missional Moonshots" is a source of insight and inspiration for educators, academic leaders, instructional designers, educational technology coaches, educational entrepreneurs, policymakers and anyone else who wants to pursue educational innovation that is rooted in mission, vision, and core values. This book includes a collection of chapters that are brief, to the point and discuss topics such as the traits of innovative schools and their leaders, the difference between trend chasing and high-impact innovation, overcoming common barriers to educational innovation, building a compelling case for a new educational product or service, why and how people adopt new innovations, where and how to start with educational innovation, and the multiple futures of education. Expect to be challenged, inspired, and further equipped to pursue mission-minded innovations that matter.
