8 Ways Smart People Use Failure To Their Advantage - Forbes

8 Ways Smart People Use Failure To Their Advantage - Forbes | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

One of the biggest roadblocks to success is the fear of failure. Fear of failure is worse than failure itself because it condemns you to a life of unrealized potential.

 

A successful response to failure is all in your approach. In a study recently published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, researchers found that success in the face of failure comes from focusing on results (what you hope to achieve), rather than trying not to fail. While it’s tempting to try and avoid failure, people who do this fail far more often than those who optimistically focus on their goals.

 

This sounds rather easy and intuitive, but it’s very hard to do when the consequences of failure are severe. The researchers also found that positive feedback increased people’s chances of success because it fueled the same optimism you experience when focusing solely on your goals.

You curate so many sites! You must drink more coffee than me, and I'm on 4-5 cups a day.

Using Brain Research to Design Better eLearning Courses: 7 Tips for Success | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

"The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth. Unfortunately, retaining information can be challenging, simply because instructors and course designers do not always use methods that facilitate remembering."

As teachers we are course designers. We design a lesson and if we teach face2face we see immediate feedback while teaching. The same feedback is not as apparent online. One question that is being researched looks at what brain research tells us about designing better lessons, and what applies to eLearning typically applies to what happens in our classroom. This post provides seven tips, with an infographic that show each. Click through to the post to see more detailed information for each tip and to find additional resources.

Below are three of the tips:

* Favor recognition over recall

* Help learners avoid stress and fear

* Keep the working memory in mind
