Progressive school admins understand teachers need room to explore and experiment to uncover ways to use technology in creating a culture of innovation.

What if we taught our students that failure is mandatory, a part of our lives, that we can learn from our failures and move forward? This post states "We understand that failure is crucially instructive and necessary on the road to success and learning." We might ask ourselves (as teachers) if we embrace failure or if we are fearful of the possible outcomes.
The post provides some foundational material, such as a graphic that looks at a "cycle of experiment and experience" as well as suggesting four strategies:
* Remove the fear of failure
* Create skunkworks
* Promote success
* Align IT and curriculum
And last but not least, that our schools should be cultures of innovation. Additional material is provided on each of the four strategies in the post.
When I teach high school game design, my students learn that failure is a part of the creative and innovative design process.
