Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."

Mary Cunningham's insight:

This fits really well with the SIM work that has been happening!  It is a nice visual representation of the Dwek work.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 8:58 AM

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:06 AM

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 9:46 AM

Gifted children often display their gifted talents in different areas.  Some children are gifted in science, others in math, others in music...and some show extraordinary talents in several areas. It is not the label that is placed on the child's ability, but what is done to develop and support that ability. The enrichment and challenge that is provided at home and in school can raise the demonstration of talent to high levels - however, this enrichment and challenge must be coupled with the social and emotional support that develops a life-long learner.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 9:51 AM

Gifted education often talks about the twice-exceptional learner - one whose intellectual gifts are coupled and often masked by a learning disability.  There is also a phenomena of the gifted student who lives in a state of poverty.  Often trapped in a high poverty school that focuses on remediation and intervention.  Poverty schools must embrace a growth mindset about students, believing that every student can develop their gifts and talents.  They must differentiate the learning experiences that provide pathways for students to access deeper learning with complex thinking within the content.  This is a tall order for teachers who are burdened with learning gaps, behavior problems, and social issues...but with over 50% of our students living in poverty, we cannot afford to miss the development of the gifts and talents that lie buried under poverty.

Don’t Build a Makerspace Until You Create a Culture of Learning | Coffee For The Brain | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
Before you begin reading this post grab a piece of paper sitting next you(you read with a notepad right?) and draw your classroom or what you imagine your classroom to be if you are not yet in charge of your own learning space. Go ahead I will wait……. There is so much buzz around the topics of Makerspaces, STEM, STEAM, STREAM, PBL, Deeper Learning, Personalized Learning and more. I want to let you in on a little secret that all great educators know and it requires zero acronyms or major funding. Secret - It all starts with treating people like people. That’s right. Maybe that secret was a bit disappointing to you. Perhaps you were wanting for a tool or an app to solve your problems(which will never work because tools only work if you change your habits of mind). This very simple secret is at the heart of teaching and making an impact in the lives of students. If you were to go back to your room layout that you sketched what do you see? Something that hopefully you see is that learning
