Resilient

Resilience

  • Absorption – the pleasure of being rapt in learning …awe and wonder
  • Managing distractions – recognising and reducing interruptions
  • Noticing – really sensing what’s out there
  • Perseverance – stickability; tolerating the feelings of learning 

Resilience means being able to persist in the face of frustration or setbacks, or when complexity is seemingly overwhelming.  Metacognition – the ability to engage with and be curious about your own thinking – is the sign of a resilient learner.  The resilient learner has developed a range of coping strategies and does not either internalise or externalise blame.  The coping strategies of a resilient learner are bolstered by a positive self-image, which in turn emerges from high self-esteem.  This allows the resilient learner to be able to place failure in context and to be able to see possibilities for learning within the experience.   To a child with resilience ‘there is no failure, only feedback’.
