Reflection: Student Ownership Celebration of Learning Presentations (Days 1 to 5) - Section 5: Day Four: Reaching Beyond What You Know and See Everyday


I didn't discourage students from using technology.  I did warn them that I had no control over the technology refresh.  Several students took the risk. It is the finale, take the risk. Risk is really hard for advanced kids. They know they can play it safe and get an A or B with a credible but formulaic presentation. I encourage my student to be risk takers and when they do--they are amazing and raise the bar for the rest of the class in a way that I never could. 

It is an advantage to have students how have high expectations of themselves. The energy that comes from risks like this  EQ cultural visions project challenges the rest of the class to rise to the occasion.  I am grateful to the students who don't fear risk even when it backfires and the outcome of the project is off the mark.  If a student takes risk and fails, I will let them try again. I never want to discourage innovation. There is always a learning curve.
