In defense of failure – Unstuck
What if we (schools across U.S.) tried the stuff in the HGSE article (http://www.gse.harvard.edu/news-impact/2013/09/whats-the-big-idea/?show=all) and used the tips here to help us overcome our fear of the ideas failing? I bet we’d learn a lot by way of the Edu R&D!

Big Hat Tip to @MrsACBragg
“When it comes to “improving” schools, students, and teachers, there’s no shortage of opinions out there on what won’t work. We wanted to know, what could work? For several months, we asked people to tell us one tangible education idea they had that was worth spreading. Some writers are connected to the Ed School, others aren’t. Yes, there’s even an idea from a Muppet. As you’ll see, a few ideas are slight twists on thoughts we’ve heard before; others are quirky and curious. All, we hope, will get you thinking.”
