The power of being wrong - Laufenberg

More hints and encouragement on how to fail excitedly, successfully and constructively!  This TED talk by Diana Laufenberg is truly amazing and inspirational.  Our traditional schools have stunted our kids' creative growth for so long by focusing on the correct methods and answers to questions that many young students have forgotten how to think and explore.  Showing incredible foresight, observation and keen child development analysis (as always) Maria Montessori made sure to define the role of the teacher as unobtrusive guide for students to use during their path towards discovery. 

Teachers... put down your red pens...slowly step away from your students...

ps. More on infographics (the other topic of her talk) later...  We love them!
