Since its Sundance premiere, Most Likely to Succeed has brought thousands of communities together for inspired discussion of their school’s future. Many ask us, “What should we do next?” Well, some of you told us how you use excerpts from MLTS to shape follow-on actions. We’re running with this idea. Below you’ll find a series of MLTS Sparks -- short videos, discussion questions, and relevant resources. Administrators, teachers, parents, or students can use them -- in groups, with another person, or on your own. They’re free. The videos are downloadable. And feel free to modify the discussion questions to suit your needs.
We believe schools improve through small innovative steps. We like to say, “No one ever won a marathon with one 26-mile leap." Each MLTS Spark helps you to focus on an issue, create micro-innovations, quickly try out a few, gain feedback, improve, and make headway – the IDEO ideation process. Remember, though. If 100% of your innovations succeed, you weren’t bold enough! So celebrate and learn from your failures as well as your successes.
