In this TEDxCOMO, Zach Beattie gives valuable advice about decisions, creativity, and mistakes.
1. Everyone is a genius and creative
2. Say, "Yes, and..."
4. Let yourself fail
What if students and teachers went to school each day knowing that blunders and triumphs would not be publicly displayed on a behavior management board? What if teachers talked to children quietly about their mistakes and worked with them to help them succeed? What if children knew that they are allowed to play because playing helps them learn. Can you imagine this type of school?
Pearls take time to form; likewise, our words should be chosen carefully and with thought.
