Mistakes and failures are not just a part of life, they are a crucial part of life. Mistakes and failures enable us to grow, to learn, and to better ourselves. The same is true for students. When students learn the benefits of making mistakes they do not fear them as much are more inclined to take on challenges, persist even after mistakes are made and develop a growth mindset.
Learning from mistakes is how students learn to challenge themselves, do things differently and solve problems. It is a necessary skill for success both in school and in their future careers. Educators need to not just let students make mistakes but encourage students to think through the benefits of those mistakes and stay solution focused as they try to correct their errors. Making and learning from mistakes is how they will develop good judgement and decision making abilities.
This PD workshop will include ideas and research behind the importance of positive change on growth mindset. A TEAMologist will facilitate a unique training experience to discuss what educators can do to help students learn the value of their mistakes and what it means to turn a negative into a positive.
