From Tim Harford’s book “Adapt: why success always starts with failure” (Abacus, 2011) come 3 principles for adapting in business and life.
1. Try new things, expecting some will fail
2. Make failure survivable: small steps or safe environments (like ‘Skunk Works‘)
3. Know when you’ve failed or you’ll never learn
Building Learning Power establishes the skills that enable independence & resilience. Qualification on paper means nothing in our rapidly changing world without the behaviours that will enable people to engage in learning through their lives.
@guyclaxton speaking at the #iapsconf14 emphasises the imperative of agility, capability and empowerment in learning in our schools. By adding these core elements to a moral and ethical purpose to curriculum, co-curriculum and resource development in our organisations we get, very swiftly, to an Education for Social Responsibility. ACE are the “intelligent behaviours” that are essential to an effective ESR.
@GuyClaxton proposes some 21st century learning habits:
1. Flounder Intelligently
2. Manage attention
3. Question knowledge claims
4. Form effective teams
5. Diagnose and improve own work
6. Seek & act on feedback
7. Organise & design your own work
