1) Challenge the status quo: Are the seats all in straight lines for the benefit of the students, or is it just the way it is? Substitute customer, stakeholder, relationship, etc. for your context. Be willing to not only ask this question, but ready to hear the answer.
2) Remember the why...: Is the purpose of school to pass standardized test? No, the students would rather make a difference. Isn't that move valuable? ...and leave the how up in the air: Give up some control and prepare to be surprised.
3) Why ask the students for their input? Because they are people too, not widgets in an educational factory. And they want to make the world better for other humans.
4) Filter your inner critic: Make it yes and... instead of yeah, but... Lots of people are worried about how to make people more innovative and creative. The thing is that people are naturally that way, it's just that school and work crush it out of them. It's easy to crush. Please don't do it.
5) Do something! It makes the learning worth something. No committees or PowerPoint presentations, just start something and be ready to learn and adjust
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled - Plutarch
