“Grading Takes All The Fun From Failing” …Simon Schocken

This Ted Talk by Simon Schocken, made me well up with tears of joy, just when he “solved” the area of a parallelogram with his tablet app for a 6 year old. Please watch it. It’s about the joy of learning through discovery with a soupcon of Genesis in the mix. He is eloquent, brilliant and funny ….and most definitely, a mensch.

Take a break and watch it now. You will emerge refreshed and invigorated. Promise.
