Mahalo Mondays #18: Mulan, different type of learning, and failures

Mulan and empowerment:

I’m not a big fan of Disney turning their animations into live-action. Mulan is another example. The magic that was in animated Mulan and what made that film special was all stripped away in the live-action.

Learning in a different way:

Fascinating article on how this school approaches mastery and learning for their students. The article is titled: A New Kind of Classroom: No Grades, No Failing, No Hurry

Quote on not hiding from failures:

“Why hide deficiencies instead of overcoming them? Why look for friends or partners who will just shore up your self-esteem instead of ones who will also challenge you to grow? And why seek out the tried and true, instead of experiences that will stretch you? The passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives.”
