Open Spokes

Challenge Topic: Failure

“The language we use is important, and so I think it is important that we have these discussions to tease-out what we mean, and as Varena says, create a common glossary. Where do you think failure fits in an educational context? Do you use it with your students?”  Kirsten

My thoughts:

People use the word.

How could we use the word to be helpful?
I love Denise’s poster:

First

In

Learning
Fail

For which I created:
First

Attempt

In

Learning

Understand

Review to revise

Enlighten

How do we encourage students through the struggle of failure?

Find the parts that work to enlighten our next attempt.

Use the language for FAILURE (above).
