Wicked Problem – Failure as Learning Mode

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.

Please see this Prezi Presentation and written paper to see the draft of our answer to the Wicked Problem.
