There are definite connections to instructional design in the process of developing a Rube Goldberg machine. There are many opportunities for failure in the various pieces of the machine which also can happen in instructional design. It takes a lot of planning and trial and error to get a working machine, just as we see with designing instructional units.

Melanie--I really like your #4. So true! And sometimes we forget that, especially for our struggling or difficult students :)

3 things really stood out as I watched this video and thought about connections to instructional design:

First, I want that kid in my class when he gets to high school.

First thing, that kid is really darn cute and I wish he was in my class. Not just because he knows some really great words, but because he already has understanding of learning from his failures.

This is an ideal example of never give up! So many of our students think if they don't get it all right then they failed. It helps remind me that even if my students don't get the end result I'm hoping for there has been some learning. I just need to adjust and move forward.
