Failing Better and Learning How to Learn - Workshop With Lance King


Failing Better and Learning How to Learn - Workshop With Lance King

November 14,2017

Grades 8, 9 and 11 were challenged by effective learning experts Lance King and Wayne Prince, from The Art of Learning during ATL workshop last week.

Mr King is well known in the world of international education and collaborated with the IB in writing the Approaches to Learning framework that all IB schools use to ensure that students develop ‘twenty-first century’ learning skills.


Mr King and Mr Prince challenged G9 students to ‘fail better’ and to measure achievement, not in terms of ability, but in terms of effort. The workshop leaders used juggling as an exercise to get

the students to change their mind sets to ‘I haven’t yet’ rather than ‘I can’t’.


Mr Prince have shown G8 students that learning ‘how’ to learn is just as important as learning ‘what’ to learn in order to achieve great success at school.


Both workshop leaders worked with G11 students on building their skills of resilience and reflection to help them develop greater confidence in high-stakes testing situations such as examinations.


"I thought this workshop was very interesting and taught me some very important points on how to study and fail well. This workshop taught me that learning is about achieving but also about learning from our mistakes along the way" said Grade 9 student Lina.
