Singapore teachers have been busy trying out innovation in many areas (pedagogy, ICT, etc) for the past half a decade. It is time we really take stock of all these innovations. It is time for teachers to work together instead of working in silo (amounting to 井底蛙). It is also time for us to recognize that there is a limit to all the innovations that we can churn out. It is the TIME for us to STOP pursuing innovations for the sake of pursuing innovations!

Since last year, there is a shift in focus from innovations to research, from one-off innovations to sustainable innovations, from scaling within pockets in school to across schools. It is time for us to build a teacher for teacher culture!
