Open Spokes
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


People use the word.
How could we use the word to be helpful?

I love Denise’s poster:


First
Attempt
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).
