This graphic is wonderful. My wheels are already turning as to how I can impart this information to our younger (K-2) students and relate it to the acronym that we currently use in our room: B(elieve)U(understand)D(discover)S(share). I will let you know what ensues. As always...thank you!!

10 Ways to Use Technology to Teach Writing > Eye On Education | Educating the future | Scoop.it

"The Common Core’s Anchor Standard 6 for writing in grades K–12 requires students to “use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others”. Here are some ideas for meeting this standard (besides the obvious use of technology—word processing).

Learners NOT Students!

Learners NOT Students! | Educating the future | Scoop.it
The term "student" was defined in the middle ages. It is time to rethink what that implies and redefine the learner.

Indeed, terms must be modernized.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, April 23, 2013 8:45 AM

This is the 21st century not the Middle Ages. Learning is happening anytime, anywhere by anyone. Consider now that we are able to learn in different ways through different mediums with the expanded use of mobile devices.

All of us are learners. How about calling students, learners?

Shawn Simpson's curator insight, May 1, 2013 2:21 AM

So very true. The "teacher" no longer exists.

David Schultz's curator insight, May 7, 2013 8:01 AM

The varying outlooks we have when we use different words to describe something is intresting.  Here the difference between "student" & "learner" points to who is ulitmatly responsible for our own intellectual development.  I wonder if the same could be true with our use of generic titles in the work place.  For example can using the word "leader" in place of "follower" for staff and use of the word "visonary" in place of "leader" for executives place the responsibility for success in a more productive perspective?

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | Educating the future | 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."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 5:58 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.

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

 

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 7:06 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.
