Precision Teaching (PT) has a positive view about making errors: the right to FAIL

“You never make an error. You were doing what the laws of behavior are predicting you would do under those contingencies. An error is a faulty contingency; it is not something in you.” – (Julie Vargas 12/7/12. Invited Address: IPTC 2012) Interestingly, at the recent Teaching & Learning Conference we held here at Bangor, I heard the keynote from Steve Wheeler. He gave an interesting account of the word FAIL. He compared it to:

  • First
  • Attempt
  • In
  • Learning

Tremendous way to look at learning, especially for children:-)
