The Learning Pit

The Learning Pit
Karen reminded me of the learning pit earlier this year and it fits in very well with BLP and growth mindset.  The idea of the learning pit was something I had explored at a previous school and as Karen had introduced it to the students, I thought I would also reinforce the need to get into the pit to really learn.  
The above video effectively relates the learning pit with Growth mindset and while the terminolgoy isn't the same as used in BLP - the strategies to get out of the pit certainly fit with Guy CLaxton's work.
I think this is a concept I need to revisit with the students and provide some learning opportunities to enjoy getting into (and out of) the learning pit.
