Educational Technology and Mobile Learning – 7 Wonderful Talks on Learning from Failure

To err is human and acknowledging one’s mistakes is the first step towards learning not to do them again. The best thing about making mistakes is the learning that comes out of them. Mistakes are indicative of an ongoing healthy process of learning. We all make mistakes and sometimes we even commit errors ( errors are considered to be much more severe than mistakes ) but we definitely differ in the way we look at our mistakes. People with ” growth mind-set ” tend to accept mistakes as natural happenings that enrich our life experiences. Similarly teachers with a growth mindset look at mistakes as precursors of learning, the engine of education . On the other hand, people with fixed mindset view them as obstacles in life, signs of incompetence and disappointment. Likewise,  teachers with a fixed mindset are more reluctant to tolerate mistakes and they consider them as a hindrance to learning.  David Bohr ( Danish physicist ) once defined an expert as ” a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field”. Bohr’s quip summarizes one of the essential lessons of learning which is that people learn how to get it right by getting it wrong again and again. Education is not magic, education is the wisdom wrung from failure.
