#Lrnchat July 18: The Power of Negative Experiences

The late 20th century saw an increase in the perceived value of positive thinking, positive experiences, and positive feedback.  But some recent research indicates that we learn more from negative experiences and feedback than from the positive. We’ll explore this in #lrnchat on Thursday, July 18. Join us on Twitter at 8:30 pm Eastern, 5:30pm  Pacific (that’s Friday July 19, 11:30 am, in Oz).
