Effective Feedback

Interesting article on effective feedback in Psychology Today. Basically he articulates the value of criticism in development and reminds us of the problems with excessive praise.

“Well-chosen criticism, delivered in an environment of high expectations and unconditional support, can inspire learning and development, whilst poorly judged praise can do more harm than good. Even relatively young children can tell the difference between constructive and destructive criticism, and it is a serious and unhelpful error to conflate the two.”

Found the article via Changing the Game Project on Twitter. Read the whole article.  Also, give them each a follow on twitter.
