Welcome to this week's 'mistakes are a part of learning' edition of Myles Ahead's curated resources for educators.

Mistakes are important because they foster learning. I'm sure you can remember at least once when you made a really big (and possibly embarassing) mistake, and then never made it again. That's because you learned from the experience.

Students make mistakes not as an interruption to learning but because they are learning. Check out the resources below to learn how to harness mistakes and build student success.

The first resource explains how students learn better when they make mistakes and argues the case for embracing mistakes.

The second resource is a Ted Talk from Diana Laufenberg which explores, among other things, how she learned the lesson our first resource teaches.

Finally, the third resource tackles a major barrier to helping students to see mistakes as a good thing - their fear of failure.
