Failing in Education: a conversation
Failing is an essential part of learning but does our education system provide authentic learning environments that thrive on risk, experimentation and failure?
West Lothian Creative Learning Network and Hidden Giants invite you to spend a day exploring failure and how it manifests within our education system. The day will bring together examples of prototype learning conceived by creative practitioners, teachers and classes from across West Lothian. We will also hear from education specialist 'The Real' David Cameron.
Over the last 8 months West Lothian CLN and Hidden Giants have collaborated with the James Young High cluster to explore risk and failure within learning and teaching. The schools have established dangerous partnerships with 4 creative practitioners to unsettle comfort zones, intensify risk taking behaviour, and disrupt the norm.
The four groups have created experiments exploring risk within their context: a nursery, P3 class, P6 class and the CDT department in the secondary. Through these experiments the schools explored their own 'risk thresholds' and are ready to share them.
If you've ever failed in education or feel that education is failing then we invite you to join us at Howden Park Centre on Friday 12th June. It might fail, in fact, if it doesn't, we'll be disappointed.
