Are teachers and schools looking for ways to incorporate these ideas and shape the learning environment or are they reacting, allowing the learning environment to be shaped as they try to resist?

What do Students Lose by Being Perfect? Valuable Failure

What do Students Lose by Being Perfect? Valuable Failure | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
The drive to perfection has made children risk averse for fear of failure. Parents and teachers can work together to give kids more autonomy and opportunities for agency.
Kelly Christopherson's insight:

What will learning look like in the future? | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

For educators, information access and continuous learning shift the focus from specific content pacing to content as required for learning.
