Benjamin Hesselager's curator insight, August 26, 1:45 PM

Dette link handle om at det at have growth mindset versus et fixed mindset. 

Det er vigtigt at være sig selv bevidst om hvordan vi opfatter elevernes indsat for at blive bedre til noget, og ligeledes hvad det er vi rose og værdsætter. Er det indsatsen eller målet for indsatsen.

"Hvor var det flot det du gjorde" eller "hvor har du gjort en stor indsat for når der til"

“Educators don’t care about platforms. It’s about the experience students have rather than the tools in their hands,” Bradbury says.

The choice of tools should be based on student activities and the best methods for engaging, entertaining and educating students, Bradbury argues.

 

“They don’t seem to care so much what device they are using. They want the technology to work and they want to have students be passionately engaged.”

Schools should be more like farms, not factories

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 30, 9:32 PM

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.
