Carol Dweck on the power of "Yet"

It's just one little word, but says world-renowned Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, it has the power to inspire your child to do incredible things.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 14, 2013 9:28 PM

Carol Dweck has written about mindset, specifically the difference between growth mindset and fixed mindset (and you can search these terms on this Scoop.it). This short (less than 1 minute) video looks at a three letter word and how it helps us see that a student has a growth mindset. Listen and learn.

How many of our learners come with the fixed view that they are "no good at maths", "don't get English" etc? Well, this is a good solid growth mindset come-back: " you don't get it yet......."

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Posted by Bram Bout, Director, Google for Education 

Today more than 30 million students, teachers and administrators globally rely on Google Apps for Education. Earning and keeping their trust drives our business forward. We know that trust is earned through protecting their privacy and providing the best security measures.

This is why, from day one, we turned off ads by default in Apps for Education services. Last year, we removed ads from Google Search for signed-in K-12 users altogether. So, if you’re a student logging in to your Apps for Education account at school or at home, when you navigate to Google.com, you will not see ads.

"For the best long-term (economic) results, education remains crucial." | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Knowledge, not taxes, can best improve economic equality.

 

"It is now well known that Thomas Piketty — the French economist and author of the 700-page bestseller “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” — argues that the free market tends to produce inequalities of wealth that become dynastic and anti-meritocratic. The solution that everyone is talking about is taxing the rich. But in reading the book, it’s clear that Piketty recognizes that, “over a long period of time, the main force in favor of greater equality has been the diffusion of knowledge and skills.”

The Myth of Learning Styles

The Myth of Learning Styles | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
For many years educators were under the false notion that there were learning styles, and recent research from Howard Gardner, John Hattie and Gregory Yates shows there isn't such thing as a learning style.

Via Mel Riddile
more...
Mel Riddile's curator insight, April 30, 2014 11:48 AM

Years ago I too bought into the idea of Learning Styles, but I learned through years of professional practice that, while students had learning preferences, those often changed with context. In addition, implementing learning styles in a classroom was impractical and ineffective. So, what I ended up doing was using what is now referred to as Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which calls for multiple forms of input and output.


For the best explanation of the topic read Dan Willingham's "The Myth of Learning Styles" http://www.changemag.org/Archives/Back%20Issues/September-October%202010/the-myth-of-learning-full.html

and "Why Learning Styles Don't Exist"
