Austin's Butterfly - the power of feedback

If you don't know about "Austin's Butterfly" these two videos explain the power of constructive feedback. It made me think about Carol Dweck's idea of fixed vs growth mindset. In these videos,
Austin's first attempt at drawing a butterfly is not quite right - Not Yet! The power of Not Yet is illustrated as Austin uses the feedback from his classmates to improve his drawing.
