This weeks learning will be about the Learning Pit.
The Learning Pit
Albert Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” As parents and teachers we go out of our way to try and provide our children with happy, safe and loving experiences. These experience nurture our students hearts but can affect their resilience. Experiences which are challenging, out of our comfort zone and require a growth mindset is important for students learning and character development.
The learning pit model by James Nottingham provides a good framework to encourage students to recognize that learning is about pushing past confusion, uncertainty and digging deep to have a go, to question, collaborate and climb back up towards deep understand-ing and knowledge.
Let us not be afraid of the learning pit and embrace challenge and hardship as opportunities for growth and transformation!
