Lisa Nielsen | @InnovativeEdu

Lisa Nielsen is The Innovative Educator. She found school boring and irrelevant. That ticked her off so in 1997 she became a public school educator who works to help change that for others. She does this by finding and sharing innovative ways to prepare students for relevant and real-world success. Among other things, this means ensuring educators and students have a voice in conversations, issues, and policies that affect them.

Lisa writes for and speaks to audiences across the globe about the future of education but she is best known for her award-winning blog, The Innovative Educator. Her writing and work are also featured in places such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, T.H.E. Journal, Tech & Learning, and Smartblogs. She is also the author of several books such as Teaching Generation Text and Fix the School, Not the Child.
