Innovation requires failure, right? But do we have to call it failure? That sounds like the end and I think that's how we all feel when we encounter failure, regardless of whether we are students or teachers. Perhaps we can begin to reframe failures as stumbling blocks toward success. With this in mind, I offer up Grant Lichtman's book #EdJourney which delves deep into innovative practices in schools across the country and asks these questions about failure.
- What is failure and who defines it?
- How is failure useful?
- How will we recover from failure?
- What are some examples of past organizational failure?
