The iterative balance

I liked Mari’s reflective blog on ‘preparing students to learn without us’.  I think that what Mari highlight is so important – that students need to be allowed ‘enough time for practice and to learn from making and correcting mistakes’.  The iterative process is so important.

I’m involved in technology projects and rolling out learning solutions for large companies and this iterative process is absolutely critical in aiming to hit the target.  However, I think the trick is getting the timing right – it’s all about preparing the right environment for people to have the experiential experience in a ‘safe’ enough setting where they can learn from their ‘mistakes’ in a way learning occurs but occuring but the mistakes aren’t too costly.
