Top Ten Tips for developing a Growth Mindset in your Classroom

Top Ten Tips for developing a Growth Mindset in your Classroom | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Imagine if every classroom, every teacher instilled this culture within your school. Every day, every hour, every minute. It would be transformational. Look to see how it affects the learning culture within your classroom and be prepared to share it with others. Teachers can be the very antithesis of a growth mindset. Having routines and expectations of ‘that bottom set’, which haven’t changed in the last 20 years. This is your biggest challenge. Embrace it!

Great article!
VéroniqueDeslandres's curator insight, August 24, 6:37 AM

Even when they know they're observed, student rapidly fall in media multitasking (answering msg or feeding Facebook wall) while doing 'important serious homework'... That's scary for learning efficiency!


extract "Evidence from psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience suggests that when students multitask while doing schoolwork, their learning is far spottier and shallower than if the work had their full attention. They understand and remember less, and they have greater difficulty transferring their learning to new contexts."

PD is Not Effective at Helping Teachers Improve

PD is Not Effective at Helping Teachers Improve | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
A new study by the advocacy group TNTP finds that PD activities don’t seem to factor into why some teachers get better while others don’t.

 

"We've known for a long time that a lot of PD is not actually effective at helping teachers improve their craft, but there have not been changes in this sector of the marketplace," said Heather C. Hill, a professor of education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. "Part of it is that we don't have good ways of tracking what works and doesn't work, so we don't point to things that work or don't work, and teachers keep signing up for the same things.”
