Foster A Growth Mindset in Your Class Using These Strategies | #ModernEDU | Education Matters | Scoop.it

August , 2017
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, August 15, 1:27 PM
There are excellent ideas in the flow chart i.e. journals, teaching how to deal with challenges, create portfolios to show progress, etc.

Art Costa and Bena Kallick's Habits of Mind would be a nice complement to these.
Diana Jaimes V.'s curator insight, September 2, 9:50 AM
First, this article led me to consider mindset shaping as a powerful tool for learning as any other aspect of life. It explains the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset that normally refers to people constantly learning from any experience. Since their capabilities are not fixed, these people are never closed to a learning experience and always use the trial and error learning. They proposed an infographic with several strategies to foster a growth mindset in our students some of the steps include the use of diverse teaching strategies, explanations of purposes of abstract thinking, teaching values, among others.

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool | Education Matters | Scoop.it
It's important to recognize that a growth mindset is an overall paradigm for personal development rather than a pedagogical tool for measuring academic accomplishment.

 

5 Growth Mindset Practices

In their groundbreaking book, Professional Learning Communities at Work, Richard DuFour and Robert Eaker say it clearly when pointing out the issue that comes about when change initiatives are considered "a task to complete rather than an ongoing process." If we really want to improve our schools, our work, and the education of our students, we can do so by adopting a new mindset -- for everyone -- that would include:

Being humble enough to accept that there are things about ourselves and our practices that can improveBecoming part of professional teams that value constructive critique instead of criticismTreating setbacks as formative struggles within the learning process instead of summative failuresRealizing the restrictive role that timelines can play in reaching high standards, and using foundational philosophies such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to map systems so that everyone's growth is supportedCreate flexible grouping at all times so that nobody's trapped in any one course level or particular type of work.

Growth mindset applies not just to students, but to teachers and administrators as well.  We must support all individuals as they develop and grow.
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 2, 2:45 PM
Growth mindset is about an approach to life not another tool for teaching. Teachers can shift away from this tool-approach by looking at growth mindset as a way to develop as a person not get better grades. 
Tina Jameson's curator insight, August 3, 6:47 PM
An interesting read - worth reflecting on what we mean by a 'growth mindset'.

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies | #Research | Education Matters | Scoop.it

— Breaking up and spacing out study time over days or weeks can substantially boost how much of the material students retain, and for longer, compared to lumping everything into a single, nose-to-the-grindstone session.


— Varying the studying environment — by hitting the books in, say, a cafe or garden rather than only hunkering down in the library, or even by listening to different background music — can help reinforce and sharpen the memory of what you learn.

— A 15-minute break to go for a walk or trawl on social media isn’t necessarily wasteful procrastination. Distractions and interruptions can allow for mental “incubation” and flashes of insight — but only if you’ve been working at a problem for a while and get stuck, according to a 2009 research meta-analysis.

— Quizzing oneself on new material, such as by reciting it aloud from memory or trying to tell a friend about it, is a far more powerful way to master information than just re-reading it, according to work by researchers including Henry Roediger III and Jeffrey Karpicke. (Roediger has co-authored his own book, “Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning.”)

What is Phenomenon-Based Learning? | #Finland does it WHY NOT WE!? #Europe #LEARNing2LEARN #PracTICE

What is Phenomenon-Based Learning? | #Finland does it WHY NOT WE!? #Europe #LEARNing2LEARN #PracTICE | Education Matters | Scoop.it

What is Phenomenon-Based Learning?

Finland will go through a new education reform that will take over in the academic year 2016-2017. Phenomenon-Based Learning will be complementing Finland’s traditional subjects. The Phenomenon or Topic Based Learning is being planned to be conducted over periods during the year and could be paced in projects – is the old new in Finland’s education. For more than three decades, Finnish schools have had a form of Phenomenon-Based Learning. What will change in 2016-2017 is that it will be obligatory in all basic schools for seven to 16-year-olds.

Phenomenon-Based Learning tackles real-world scenarios holistically from different subject areas’ perspectives. This method will entail a rich learning experience, which is relevant to learners’ lives. The interdisciplinary learning could be conducted in a simple way, by linking similar knowledge areas between different subjects and introducing them at the same slot of the academic year.

 

This develops awareness of how curricula intersect to form the broader frame of knowledge. A more sophisticated interdisciplinary approach, such as Phenomenon-Based Learning occurs when we go beyond simply linking different subjects to applying, organising centers and essential questions to plan topic teaching. One example could be the questions students have about a topic such as the importance of the European Union. To answer these questions knowledge and skills from economics, history, geography and languages are to be integrated.

Having only recently for the first time taken up Blogging for an assessment item, I have become aware of its benefits in the classroom.  This diagram shows more ways in which it can be useful than I originally had realised and as such, I have now decided that adding a reflective Blog into my teaching will be of benefit to the students.  The ability to be in connection with others worldwide, will open students up to new possibilities.  I hope also then, that my Blogs and my students Blogs will benefit the wider community also.  I am reminded though that I need to ensure that the online environment that my students are involved in is a safe environment.

Why Emotional Learning May Be As Important As The ABCs

Why Emotional Learning May Be As Important As The ABCs | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Yeah, Twiggle is lonely. But, eventually, he befriends a hedgehog, a duck and a dog. And along the way, he learns how to play, help and share.

These are crucial skills we all need to learn, even in preschool and kindergarten. And common sense — along with a growing body of research — shows that mastering social skills early on can help people stay out of trouble all the way into their adult lives.

So shouldn’t schools teach kids about emotions and conflict negotiation in the same way they teach math and reading? The creators of Twiggle the Turtle say the answer is yes.

Heutagogy Explained for Teachers (and Tools That Support It) | LEARNing To LEARN

Heutagogy Explained for Teachers (and Tools That Support It) | LEARNing To LEARN | Education Matters | Scoop.it
October 20, 2015
Heutagogy is a learning and teaching  approach that is primarily self-directed or self-determined. Unlike the traditional pedagogic paradigm where learning is administered in a controlled environment under the auspices of a ‘knowledge expert’ (teacher) and where learners agency is defined in the logic of conformity and passive adhesiveness to pre-defined instructional guidelines, a heutagogic pedagogy is more learner entered. It is bent on developing learners autonomy and enabling them to take control of their own learning. At its core is the individual empowerment through equipping learners with a variety of skills and competencies to help them with their self-formation.

I chose this article because I have not sensed the endorsement of self-directed learning that I experienced, say 10 years ago. However, the author describes different tech tools that support the idea of self-directed learning. Certainly, social media and the availability of knowledge and resources that support it (animations, tutorials, videos) make self-directed learning a more realistic venture.

Does your classroom offer one-and-done types of learning activities, or does the learning grow, inspire, and evolve throughout the year and beyond? With tools like G Suite for Education that are available 24/7, the learning doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings at the end of class, or when the worksheet is turned in, or even when the school year ends. The learning takes on a life of its own; it becomes dynamic.

 

This concept alone should change the way you think about learning in general and change the way you facilitate learning in the classroom.

Rubiel's curator insight, September 16, 10:04 PM
The author shares the idea about going beyond the mere fact of being learning only in the classroom. His thoughts on being more autonomous when implementing tools which provide the learners with the opportunity to practice at home leaves a space to consider the way we are making the education happen nowadays. Thereupon, I agree with the consideration about having learners dig deeper into their learning on their own terms with the tecnological devices found in this new era and let them dig deeper on things the are interested in the most.

David Alzate's curator insight, September 17, 6:18 PM
This article advices teachers to help their students see learning as an entire life process, and that with all the tools we have available today it does not have to be boring, limited or seen as a burden. Instead, teachers can help them power and further a mindset of proactivity and independence in learning. It means that the children, teenagers or adults in a class can come to understand ,with their teacher’s help, that learning does not always mean to have a board and a teacher in front of a classroom. This article notes that it is of high importance for teachers to constantly be updated in all the new tools that are available for education, and to learn how to use them beyond the common and old way. In this new, connected and more globalized world, learning does not have to stop necessarily when the school day or year ends, it can be at any time, and also interesting and exciting; the deal here is to have teachers and therefore students thinking out of the box, and seeing education notas a burden or a must, but an enjoyable process insofar as this mindset is well provided and spread.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | Education Matters | Scoop.it
During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

This is a short article on the ways that teachers' roles are changing. It is important to note that teachers are not becoming obsolete, but are just as important as ever. Teachers are here to facilitate learning and assisting the students in becoming resilient, self directed and capable learners.

Harvard theorist Howard Gardner describes emotional intelligence as “the level of your ability to understand other people, what motivates them and how to work cooperatively with them.”  Emotional intelligence can be broken down into five major components.  When we look at each in turn it becomes easy to understand why EQ plays such a key role success.

Personalize Learning: Making the Shift to "Our" Classroom

Personalize Learning: Making the Shift to "Our" Classroom | Education Matters | Scoop.it

One of the most difficult parts of our jobs as educators is to create a learning environment where our learners are engaged and meet content and curriculum goals. From my experience, the single most important challenge that needs to be addressed to earn engagement in our classrooms is to develop a culture of learner autonomy--allowing and encouraging learners to take control of their own learning. There are many barriers that we, as educators, must work to clear in order to create a strong culture that allows our learners to feel comfortable with working toward a common goal in the way that works best for them.

Dr. Helen Teague's curator insight, May 22, 2016 10:26 AM
Kathleen McClaskey's insight: Brian shares how he transformed his classroom to a learner-centered environment and what happened in the process with his learners. Here is a glimpse of his journey: "As teachers, it is difficult to let go of control and to let our learners find the best ways for them to achieve content and curriculum goals. To be clear, our role in the classroom needs to change, and I think the trend in education is moving the correct direction--achieving and creating a learner-driven, personalized atmosphere is the key. Providing learners with the tools to succeed should be the goal, and we should focus on allowing them to use those tools in the way that works best individually. Instead of providing the blueprint for learners to achieve a goal, educators should be allowing and guiding them in designing, developing, and implementing their plan for accomplishing it. When this happens, drastic changes take place regarding engagement in our classrooms and ownership of learning appears, leading to a higher level of achievement."
Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, January 24, 9:33 AM

Education is an important area of life that effects areas of an individual life that  last life time and only testing which reveals the current education level and not the previous years be they educationally successful or not because the present status of education and all the needed services and programs needed for the students education success on his or her current education level for success cannot be determined by usage of former education info.
