How Games Help Students Embrace Failure

How Games Help Students Embrace Failure | Serious Play | Scoop.it

We live in a society where academic failure is not an option. The statistics bear out that the more successful you are in education, the more well-off and unemployment-proof you will be over the long haul. Add to that the fact that students and/or their parents are often paying a premium price for higher education, and you have a situation with significant pressure to perform. Thus students are conditioned to avoid failure in school.

Games, in contrast, depend on failure to teach. (...)

In order to succeed, players must encounter and overcome obstacles both large and small along the way. These disappointments teach students to persevere and foster creativity and adaptability – invaluable skills in our hyper-connected, fast-paced, global economy. Here is a look at some of the ways failure helps students and how games support this valuable learning opportunity.

Failure is a positive act of creativity Scientists, artists, engineers, and even entrepreneurs have to re-learn this as adults.

 

Because in schools, the notion of failure is complicated. School usually gives students one chance to get something right; failing grades work against practice, mastery, and creativity.
