  1. Liked the concept of fail up – matches with growth mindset and Jo Boaler maths. Uses the concept of persistence and grit. Also liked the idea that it is okay to have a go and if it doesn’t work, you can leave it at that (I know that seems contradictory to the idea of persistence). The concept of learning by play fits in well with what is occurring in Kindy. The idea of ‘pop-up’ maker areas was interesting.

    • I think this video is a really important one for our staff because it discusses Maker-spaces which is a concept that not everyone may completely understand. If part of our redevelopment is including a Makerspace classroom then teachers need to understand how this space will look and operate. I think I will post a few more videos and articles about Maker-spaces to further develop everyones understanding. Glad you found the video useful and thanks for commenting.
