In this episode, Mike and Glen talk about what it means to fail, for teachers and students. We tell some stories of our worst failures in the classroom and how important it is to reflect and learn from mistakes. We need to remind our student that it is OK to fail, and there is no better way to teach that than to be an example. We also spend time with games-based learning leader Noah Geisel talking about the upcoming Badge Summit in Chicago, coding and world languages and the Chrome extension he works with, Stackup.
