Mel Aclaro's insight:

"At the cellular level, learning and memory involve forming and tuning connections, or synapses, between neurons. The strength of these connections depends on the number of AMPA receptors (AMPARs) sitting on the cell surfaces within these synapses. More AMPARs create stronger synapses."

Why Understanding These Four Types of Mistakes Can Help Us Learn

Why Understanding These Four Types of Mistakes Can Help Us Learn | Screencasting and eLearning Wizardry | Scoop.it
By understanding the level of learning and intentionality in our mistakes, we can identify what helps us grow as learners.
Mel Aclaro's insight:

I love this article. Some have asked me to clarify my philosophy of creating "safe environments in which to fail..." This article sums it up perfectly. :)

 

"Mistakes are not all created equal, and they are not always desirable. In addition, learning from mistakes is not all automatic. In order to learn from them the most we need to reflect on our errors and extract lessons from them... If we're precise in our own understanding of mistakes and in our communication with students, it will increase their understanding, buy-in and efficacy as learners."
