Innovative schools can make a mistake and learn from it, imagine what type of message that sends to the teachers and students. Innovative schools continually push the envelope of teaching and learning, and sometimes this leads to mistakes. Mistakes with technology, mistakes with curriculum, and mistakes with training.
But, that doesn’t hold innovative schools back from moving forward. They get back up, and keep going. Notice, this isn’t one person making a mistake, it is the organization…and the entire school can learn and improve from mistakes if that is built into the culture.
Innovative schools make mistakes and learn from them. We learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes. What do you think?
