Too often in schools we get hung up on homework and marking. We judge things in volume and in grades. I’ve always thought their might be a better way to encourage students to reflect on their performance and improve, rather than simply perform against a pre-set series of grades.
Better feedback, that is feedback designed to encourage reflection and changes in attitude and behaviours which improves performance, is the way forward.
This presentation from Dr Heidi Grant of Neuro Leadership explores the impact that neuroscience can have in the development of such a systematic approach to leadership.
