Recently I was at the NCAIS Innovate Conference at Cary Academy, and I heard a number of presenters speak about the value of an “epic fail” when experimenting with social media in their classrooms. Sounds reasonable. I work at a school where one of the core values is “We believe that students should be encouraged to try new endeavors and take risks without fear of failure.” Great in theory, but do teachers really do this in practice? Honestly? I want my lessons and activities to work.
What about you? Help me write this blog post by explaining your BEST “epic fail” using social media…what did you learn that others might benefit from knowing?
