Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur. As Pogo pointed out long ago, “we have met the enemy and it is us.” http://www.cea-ace.ca/blog/brian-harrison/2013/09/5/stop-asking-permission-change

Educational psychology has focused on the concepts of learned helplessness and more currently growth-fixed mindsets as a way to explain how and why students give up in the classroom setting.  These ideas can also be applied to educators in this day of forced standardization, testing, scripted curriculum, and school initiatives.

How to build a learning worker mindset

How to build a learning worker mindset | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Why in this day and age, it is important to become a “learning worker”, and that for me  “learning to learn” doesn’t just mean “learning how to study” in formal courses. etc – although that’s a part of it, but nowadays it also means:

building a habit of continuous, everyday learning – and keeping your eyes and ears constantly open and learn from everything around youextracting the learning from your work experiences – this, after all, is how most of how we learn to do our work takes place – as we do our job keeping up to date with what’s happening in your industry and profession – not just by going to an annual conference or reading a few industry magazines – that pretty much tells you what’s happening now, not what’s happening next – the place to find that out is in on the Social Web, in your professional social networksrecognising serendipitous learning – the accidental, unplanned learning that takes place everyday as a consequence of other things.

For me, this is the new work of learning professionals – one that involves helping and supporting individuals – rather than creating and delivering one-size-fits-all content!

The Best Leaders Are Constant Learners | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Seek, sense, share.

 

Reinvention and relevance in the 21st century instead draw on our ability to adjust our way of thinking, learning, doing and being. Leaders must get comfortable with living in a state of continually becoming, a perpetual beta mode. Leaders that stay on top of society’s changes do so by being receptive and able to learn. In a time where the half-life of any skill is about five years, leaders bear a responsibility to renew their perspective in order to secure the relevance of their organizations.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 10:53 AM

I chose this resource because I've always held the fundamental belief that leadership must continually model a learning-driven approach if they expect the same from subordinates. I like the Seek-Sense-Share model of personal knowledge mastery described here. In many ways this model mimics the scientific method. As a bona fide science geek, I agree that being curious, identifying questions, seeking resolution, and communicating findings is a knowledge-acquisition protocol that has proven to be very effective.

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 4, 9:10 PM
This article offers a snapshot of where ed tech stands now and where it is likely to go in the next five years, according to 56 education and technology experts from 22 countries.

The overall of the topic is divided at three different moments. first, we encounter the trends in educatioon among which we can find deeper learning, rethinking learning and collaboration, it means that these  aspects have started to be included in every-day lesson, and educators have been concerned about it more often than before, but when could it be done?

On the other side, we find the challenges as Authentic Learning, Professional Development, and Personalized Learning & Teacher’s Role, so finally how are we going to conceive technlogy in our classrooms over the next five years?, Are we going to be able to overcome all of these chhallenges, and if so, which is going to be the rle of the educator in the field?, all question that need to be answered

Unexpected Tools That are Influencing the Future of Education | Empathy | Social | eSkills | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Much of the disaffection with the school system stems from a pervasive feeling that the intense focus on formal academics has inadvertently neglected the rest of a child’s personality and humanity. While employers, psychologists and other researchers have repeatedly noted that social and emotional skills like empathy are some of the most important ones for success, many schools still lag in developing effective programs to nurture those soft skills.

Societal norms posit girls as being more emotionally intelligent than boys, but the subtle ways that teachers and parents reinforce that gender stereotype can harm boys, who need to learn empathy as an important life skill for connecting with others, problem-solving and developing moral courage.

 

Many of these interpersonal skills develop naturally when children have the opportunity to play together in unstructured environments, but free play is on the decline both in schools and at home. Researchers are now even questioning if lack of free play in students’ lives could be partly responsible for rising rates of depression among youth.

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).

 

I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.

 

In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.

Student Autonomy

Student Autonomy | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Empowering Students In the Classroom

 

When I think of change that needs to happen in Education, my immediate thought goes toward student autonomy. To be autonomous as a student is to be able to independently manage the freedom one has in the classroom, while maintaining a harmonious relationship with the teacher.

 

For a student to be autonomous, a student must realize:

They have a voiceTheir voice mattersIt will be heardIt will make a difference

Student autonomy happens with teacher autonomy. Gert Biesta proposes democracy happens in classrooms where it is lived and modeled. It is not a distant process. The word is not autonomy but emancipation which is responsible for the Other and the world we live in.

Why Do Teachers Need Instructional Coaches?

Why Do Teachers Need Instructional Coaches? | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Instructional Coaching

According to Jim Knight, someone I work with as an instructional coaching trainer, up to 90% of what teachers learn alongside coaches will be retained. This means, that unlike traditional professional development where Knight's research shows that teachers lose 90% of what they learn, coaching can provide an enormous impact.

Knight's work is highly respected, and is highly respectful of teachers. Instructional coaching, in Knight's research and philosophy, is about working in partnership with teachers where the learning is reciprocal on the part of the teacher and coach. After all, we can learn a lot from one another.

In order for coaching to work properly, the school has to have a climate conducive to learning, which means that there needs to be a balance between risk-taking and rule following.  It also means that teachers need to be able to trust that the coaching-teaching relationship will be confidential, something Knight believes both parties should come to an agreement on before the coaching relationship even begins.

Instructional Coaches: How Do You Evaluate Your Impact? | Coaching | LEARNing To LEARN | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Instructional coaches (IC's) are one group that are a bit more removed from students. Don't jump to any negative conclusions with that last sentence. What I mean is that, although they impact students in positive ways, they are a bit more separated from the consistent daily involvement that classroom teachers have with students.

Instructional coaches can have an enormous impact on the teaching and learning that happens in a school. Technology coaches help bridge the learning gap between teachers and technology. Content coaches can help teachers gain a better understanding of standards and subjects. Instructional coaches can help teachers improve their instructional practices in any subject at any time.

There are at least five reasons why schools should have instructional coaches. It's not that all teachers are weak and need help. It's about the idea that we all have blind spots (Otto Scharmer) and coaches can help others see their blind spots. According to this article in the New Yorker, even doctors have coaches to help them improve and see their blind spots.

Gust MEES's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:57 AM
Instructional coaches (IC's) are one group that are a bit more removed from students. Don't jump to any negative conclusions with that last sentence. What I mean is that, although they impact students in positive ways, they are a bit more separated from the consistent daily involvement that classroom teachers have with students.

Instructional coaches can have an enormous impact on the teaching and learning that happens in a school. Technology coaches help bridge the learning gap between teachers and technology. Content coaches can help teachers gain a better understanding of standards and subjects. Instructional coaches can help teachers improve their instructional practices in any subject at any time.

There are at least five reasons why schools should have instructional coaches. It's not that all teachers are weak and need help. It's about the idea that we all have blind spots (Otto Scharmer) and coaches can help others see their blind spots. According to this article in the New Yorker, even doctors have coaches to help them improve and see their blind spots.

The Innovator's Mindset: Envisioning the Future

The Innovator's Mindset: Envisioning the Future | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Innovation is everyone's great desire. We worship innovation. Entrepreneurs embrace it. Careers are made on it. Companies compete over it. The challenge is we may not all be talking about the same thing.

 

The innovator's mindset embraces these ten strategies I have found in my research:
1. Bring value and meaning that is clearly unique. 
2. Create a culture of inventing that others can build on. 
3. Move with velocity to embrace the new. 
4. Have the courage to create. 
5. Disrupt yourself before others do. 
6. If you don't have passion about an idea, don't do it. 
7. Change something to make it better, bring the value. 
8. Monetizing innovation is called success. 
9. People do the innovating. 
10. Decide what mountain top you want to own, then go for it.
