The one thing all innovative educators need is more time. That’s why I stopped and read this Fast Company article from my Twitter feed: “Seven Effective Shortcuts To A More Productive Workday.” Rather than reading the whole article, I’ll save you time and share some ways this can be applied to the busy lives of innovative educators.

- Stand up: Whether in class delivering a lesson or in a staff meeting, mix it up and stand up for a more productive experience. Consider scanning Craigslist and garage sales for high top tables that students can stand at so that classrooms are more fun and healthy places to learn.
