Teaching Students to Fail Their Way to Success - Part 1

Teaching Students to Fail Their Way to Success - Part 1 | English teaching & Learning | Scoop.it
Failure has been a trending topic on Education Unbound recently, particularly in regards to the disconnect between educational objectives and game-based learning (GBL).

We know that many games "depend on players failing multiple times as the primary means of learning how to overcome obstacles." How does this compare to education, where the "notion of failure is bad"? This post by Justin Marquis explores this issue in this first of a two part series.

The article includes the following sections:

* Teach that Learning is a Process

* Make Learning the Goal

* Support Second Chances

* A Change in Mindset

The second part of this article, 'Learning to Learn from Failure', is also available at http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/10/learning-learn-failure/. Topics explored include: Learning From Your Mistakes, Embrace Metacognition, Ask for Help, Explore Alternative Paths to Success, and Failing to Learn is the Only Real Failure.

Nicole Zandi's curator insight, April 30, 2013 5:52 PM

This a new age for enjoying performances. We invited the radio into our homes. We opened our door to televisions, to the internet and everything else that has come with it. But this is a reversal in the arts, where we the audience are being invited in. Theatre is no longer set in building- but like heart that defines the home, the audience will now define the performance.

Melissa M's comment, May 5, 2013 3:42 AM
This article is useful when designing your own theatrical pieces for assignments. It allows you to think if you want a passive or interactive audience, and where the boundaries lie for this style of theatre.
Alicia Caruana's curator insight, May 7, 2013 3:48 AM

How can a director produce an effective interactive theatre performance?

Why do many interactive performances fail to fulfill their purpose?

The Flip: End of a Love Affair

The Flip: End of a Love Affair | English teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

A little over a year ago I wrote a postabout the flipped classroom, why I loved it. When I recently re-read the post, I didn’t disagree with anything I’d said. Yet my brief love affair with the flip has ended. It simply didn’t produce the tranformative learning experience I knew I wanted for my students .
