The Comprehensive Dictionary of Educational Hashtags for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | CCRS | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach"Most of my Twitter interaction includes hashtags. I use a wide variety of hashtags to follow and participate in discussions around a particular topic. I do have some specific hashtags that I use on every day basis such as #edtech, #education, #phdchat, #ipadded and a couple more but sometimes my selection goes way beyond that to include other hashtags depending on the type of search I am doing."

The Significance of Grit (Resilience): Angela Lee Duckworth | CCRS | Scoop.it

What all those definitions of resilience have in common is the idea of a positive response to failure or adversity. Grit is related because part of what it means to be gritty is to be resilient in the face of failure or adversity. But that's not the only trait you need to be gritty.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 10, 2013 11:26 AM

"Carol Dweck, more than anyone else, is a role model for me. We're collaborating with her on a couple of projects. One thing we've found is that children who have more of a growth mind-set tend to be grittier. The correlation isn't perfect, but this suggests to me that one of the things that makes you gritty is having a growth mind-set. The attitude "I can get better if I try harder" should help make you a tenacious, determined, hard-working person." - Angela Duckworth

"Grit" ... a key to being successful ... and it's something that you can develop in yourself and promote throughout your organization.
