Students often focus on their grades rather than what they are learning. They come to the classroom scared to “fail” or answer a question incorrectly in front of their peers, or getting a bad grade. The New Media Consortium (2013) has established “failure as learning mode” as a Wicked Problem or a problem that is very complex. Our group attempted to shine a new light on “failure” by collaborating and trying to come up with an answer to this Wicked Problem.
