Creating Communities of Innovation is a multi-year study pursuing new approaches to educational innovations with 52 teachers and administrators working in seven of the forty-two schools within the GEMS Middle East/North Africa/South Asia (MENASA) network. Through a process of joint inquiry, the project considers how researchers might partner with educators and administrators to create scalable innovations within a network of schools, and how such a network could be used to develop and sustain innovations that truly add value to teaching and learning. Teachers and administrators working with the Creating Communities of Innovation project serve students in primary, middle, and secondary school and work within schools that apply American, Indian, British, and International Baccalaureate curricula. Though predominantly situated within the cultural context of the United Arab Emirates, the emergent tools and educator resources developed through the Creating Communities of Innovation project are meant to be adapted to suit a variety of teaching and learning environments.
