Resilient Learners

“Resilient learners” is certainty buzzword word in education at the moment. All the research shows that it is an important predictor in student achievement, and something we should be fostering. We know resilient learners are less likely to give up, more likely to task risks and recover from failure quicker than others However I have to admit, I am still not clear on exactly how to build it in my own classroom. What are practical ways to implement this research? I came across this great article in The Age which I wanted to share. The video is also insightful. I suggest reading the article and then watching the video.
