Spring Break Day 4

Today I watched the TED Talk, “Doctors make mistakes. Can we talk about that?” by Brian Goldman. I love this talk! It applies to all learning in every discipline. Doctors aren’t the only people who make mistakes. We all do! Teachers and students do all the time. Instead of using mistakes as a way to learn, we penalize students by making everything about a grade. Why is failure and the process of learning from failure not an option? How can we make failure a safe place for people to learn? Can people learn without experiencing failure?

Please share answers, comments and questions.
