Learning to Fail with Style and Grace

Kids are taught that one of their primary goals in life is to avoid making mistakes. But failure is a fact of life, and some kinds of failure are good. Failure is also integral to creative problem solving and key in achieving any kind of real success as an adult. Our focus is to discuss how to redirect our education in order to teach kids to feel confident about failure and to perceive it as both temporary and a normal part of the learning experience.
