If I asked a teacher a question
and they used Google, or tweeted
out the question and found the
information through a social
network, many people would
consider that adult “resourceful.”
Yet if a student does the same thing,
they are considered a cheater.
We learn best after failing. In
fact, you should start promoting
epic failures in your classroom.
Give a round of applause when
students fail because now the
learning can really begin.
Let’s face it, we’ve been distracted
creatures for thousands of years,
but it’s time we started managing
those distractions and not letting
them rule our lives. Do we really
need to know when our washing
machine is done?
