Unpacking the Stigma of Failing: How To Fail Forward


March 20, 2024 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT







English-Language Learners (ELL), Students with Disabilities

About This Webinar

The fear of failure. It can lead students to feel hopeless, stressed and cause lower levels of self-esteem. Yet failing is required to innovate, to problem-solve, think creatively and cultivate emotional intelligence. So how do we shift this fear of failure mindset? How do we support students to internalize that Failing Forward is essential for learning and growth.

In this 2024 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference session, we’ll unpack the stigma around failure; explore the relationship between failure, growth and learning, and explore five ways for bringing failure into the classroom through experiential learning. Participants will also explore their own biases about failure through a brief assessment and hear best practices from fellow educators for incorporating Failing Forward concepts in the classroom.

Unpacking the Stigma of Failing
Interesting Webinar but the on demand wouldn't let me access the poll questions and the video was glitchy, it would repeat and then repeat again. It ended in the middle of a video. I have used this site many times in the past with no issues but I am not sure I will use ShareMyLesson webinars again. I haven't made my mind up in this regard but am seriously thinking about it. Maybe this Webinar could be a call to action to fix your on demand webinars! This is not the first time this has happened to me in the space of a week. I have used this site many times in the past and had excellent experiences but as I said my recent experiences have not been very good. You got one star from me but I am not sure that is accurate. Less than one star would be a more appropriate choice from me

I agree.
This webinar confirmed my belief that we need to gear away from the culture of toxic success - the importance of grades to measure success - to a culture more embracing of failure as stepping stones to life-long learning and success.
