The Innovator’s Mindset Blog Hop

Each week, a question is posed and educators respond on Twitter using the #ossemooc and/or #innovatorsmindset hashtags, by commenting on the blog, or by posting a response on their own blog and adding it to the reading list here: https://ossemooc.wordpress.com/innovatorsmindset-blog-hop/
