Because I feel safe, I can learn from my mistakes.
The cat was inspired by this infographic: 2. If students know the classroom is a safe place to make mistakes, they are more likely to use feedback for learning.
1. Feedback is not advice, praise, or evaluation. Feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal.
2. If students know the classroom is a safe place to make mistakes, they are more likely to use feedback for learning.
3. The feedback students give teachers can be more powerful than the feedback teachers give students.
4. When we give a grade as part of our feedback, students routinely read only as far as the grade.
5. Effective feedback occurs during the learning, while there is still time to act on it.
6. Most of the feedback that students receive about their classroom work is from other students - and much of that feedback is wrong.
7. Students need to know their learning target - the specific skill they're supposed to learn - or else "feedback" is just someone telling them what to do.
