Although this link to Daniel Pink's Ted talk on "The puzzle of motivation" is a few years old, it's still worth a look - this being the beginning of a new school year and all.
It came to me via the book I'm reading by Don Wettrick - Pure Genius: Building a Culture of Innovation and Taking 20% Time to the Next Level.
Now his talk is aimed at the business world, but it still can be applied to our education system. So I asked myself this question, How can I give my staff 20% time? Mmmmmm..... Stay tuned! (Wheels of creativity spinning in my head)
