Mistakes are Learning Opportunities

As I walk through classrooms here at The Creek, I've often heard teachers say, "Mistakes are learning opportunities." How true! And, how fantastic that teachers are instilling this belief in our young learners. Our students aren't afraid to try something new, go out on a limb, because they know, that even if they fail, it will be a learning opportunity. When I saw this video on Karl Fisch's blog, I knew I had to share it.
