Failure can be valuable and, yes, even enjoyable. When we do things that don’t work, we learn. So how do we foster risk taking and innovation in our students? We can create the freedom to “fail forward” and develop a climate where everyone learns through questions, experience, fun, and failure. Guest Andrew Miller describes how adults can help young people grow and learn through constructive failures and proper feedback.
Andrew currently serves on the National Faculty for the Buck Institute for Education and ASCD and is an Associate for Jay McTighe. He travels internationally, working with educators in his many areas of expertise. Andrew is an avid blogger and writer for a variety of organizations including ASCD and Edutopia.
