Misconceptions, Mistakes, and Error are the Seeds of Learning

In an excellent article at Edutpia, Richard Curwin discussed 9 ways to embrace mistakes to enhance Learning. I especially like #7:

"Instead of (or at least in addition to) walls filled with students' achievements, have a wall where students can brag about their biggest mistakes and what they learned from them"

Indeed, if we are able to develop risk takers and curiosity we will ned to embrace errors without judgment so they we can all be better off because of them.
