ICT, Innovation and Education go usually hand to hand, nowadays. When politicians, teachers, policy makers, administrative staff and other facilitators support their visions and projects with words, it seems that nothing worths the same if it is not innovative enough.
In addition to the usual misconception between innovative, innovation, new, breakthrough, applied research and other similar terms in the same playground, we usually put too much stress on the concept as a required new step to take in order, to move forward. If not new, not valid. If not innovative, not significant. I disagree.
