Since I’m up, I might as well write out this concept I’ve been thinking about lately. Here’s a potential rambling #thread about the idea of feeling/looking “stupid” & it’s relationship to our learning process.
The other night I was thinking about how often I see students not want to speak in class for fear of feeling/looking “stupid.” I really hate the ableist implications of the phrase as well as the way this fear gets in the way of learning.
People talk about “feeling stupid” in situations where essentially they find out they didn’t know something or their previous knowledge was incorrect. This is particularly the case when their ignorance is revealed in front of people or in public/digital space like social media.
