Throughout the Digital Fluency Academy, we talk a lot about taking risks–failing forward. Risk-taking is a crucial element of the learning process for both students and teachers. Creating a learning environment that encourages risk-taking, and supports all stages of learning should be supported by all stakeholders.

I often refer to this acronym, and use this graphic in the Digital Fluency Academy:


In the article from Edutopia, “The Role of Mistakes in the Classroom,” we go even deeper into this idea. Students are often afraid to raise their hands if they do not already know the correct answer. How can we reverse this culture in the classroom?

I don’t have all the answers, but I hope we all encourage our teachers and students to try new things. It’s okay if you don’t get it right the first time. It’s all part of the learning experience.
