What to do when things don't go quite as you expect in a learning activity :-)

Flickr, a Web 2.0 web site that allows its use...Image via WikipediaIf you are involved in education, training, or facilitation of pretty much any session, there are sure to be times when things don't go quite as you expect. This video shows what this teacher did, and by choosing the strategy she decided to, increased the value of the learning experience.

Although the example you see here is with 4th grade students, it's a model and set of principles that could be applied across pretty much any age range.

The description from the site reads: "See how Web 2.0 tools and 21st century literacies are woven into a project-based Language Arts unit. In this video you will learn about the learning activities that led up to the culminating product, The Top 10 Wiki. The Top 10 unit is aligned to standards, big ideas and essential questions, and integrates a variety of instructional strategies both off line and on line."
