Celebrating Failure

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I always want things to go perfectly. They don't, always. Trying new things creates the possibility of failure. "These same students, who are hiding and embarrassed by their "failure" with certain concepts (again, I see this mostly in Math), have no problem when they come in and fail at some computer game in the lab, or when they play XBox, Nintendo, Playstation at home." I need to embrace the idea that life is like a video game. less serious, and certainly less permanent, than I tend to think it is.
