Do you teach your students about growth mindset? Is this a topic of discussion with other staff in your school? Jackie Gerstein has shared three excellent resources in this post that focuses on growth mindset.

She has created an infographic (image above) that looks at fixed mindset and growth mindset, showing how a student may identify based on their mindset.

The next step was putting the infographic into ThingLink and creating links to over 15 resources. Here is the link: ThingLink version of the infographic.

There is also a slideshow that provides additional resources (although some may be repeated in the ThingLink). The slideshow is split into four sections:

* Mindsets

* Historical Background

* The Educator with a Growth Mindset

* Teaching the Growth Mindset to your Learners

Since this post is based on a workshop she provided it is a great resource to share with teachers at your school (or other teachers whom you know). Make sure to check out the resources for students. You may find yourself creating a poster to help your students learn more about growth mindset.

Another nice infographic on mindset

This will be a valuable tool to share in seminar with my new teachers as we look at their students and how the teacher views their classroom.

The "Immeasurable" - What is it that we are Assessing?

The "Immeasurable"  - What is it that we are Assessing? | Educational Technology: Leaders and Leadership | Scoop.it

"...school assessment lives primarily in the bottom left part of that graph, and that we rarely if ever get to the “immeasurable” stuff that resides toward the top right. To put it another way, we focus in schools on that which is quantifiable when, I think, our real value as places of learning rests in that messy stuff that isn’t."

Rethinking Curriculum Writing, Part 2

Rethinking Curriculum Writing, Part 2 | Educational Technology: Leaders and Leadership | Scoop.it

This is a continuation of the 'Everything you know about curriculum may be wrong. Really' that I scooped yesterday. (Both by Grant Wiggins)  In this post he continues to look at "an explosion of educational innovation" (which began in the 1930s). Along with Ralph Tyler (whom he brought up in his first post) he also presents work from Harold Fawcett, Hollis Caswell, and John Dewey. This post looks at the concepts of curriculum scope and sequence, with a focus on sequence, and if it is 'logical' or 'psychological'.

Bloom's Verb Wheel and Bloom's Web2.0 Wheel

Bloom's Verb Wheel and Bloom's Web2.0 Wheel | Educational Technology: Leaders and Leadership | Scoop.it

Two looks at Bloom's - one is a verb wheel and the other is a web2.0 wheel. The Verb Wheel shows the domains as well as appropriate verbs and possible student projects. The Web 2.0 Wheel also includes suggestions of Web 2.0 tools you might use.

Everything you know about curriculum may be wrong.

Everything you know about curriculum may be wrong. | Educational Technology: Leaders and Leadership | Scoop.it

Grant Wiggins asks us to question what we know about curriculum in this piece...what would happen if we made a significan shift in how we look at curriculum?

"What if the earth moves and the sun is at rest? What if gravity is just a special case of space-time? Following both counter-intuitive premises revolutionized science and ushered in the modern world. Could a similar counter-intuitive thought experiment advance education from where I believe we are currently stuck? I believe so."
