Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery | On Learning & Education: What Parents Need to Know | Scoop.it

Ten Disciplines of a Learner
We decided to continue the conversation on this topic at a faculty meeting. Several meetings later we had a new report card. We decided to give two grades and average them—one for “Learning,” the other for “Mastery.”

Sara might get an “F” in mastery and an “A” in learning, culminating in a “C” for the course. To be rigorous we picked ten observable behaviors and named them “Disciplines of a Learner:”

1.     Asks questions

2.     Builds on other people’s ideas

3.     Uses mistakes as learning opportunities

4.     Takes criticism constructively

5.     Speaks up

6.     Welcomes a challenge

7.     Takes risks

8.     Listens with an openness to change

9.     Perseveres in tasks

10.   Decides when to lead and when to follow.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, March 21, 9:57 AM

Love this examination of 'Disciplines of a Learner" that clearly distinguishes between master and learning. I think we should demonstrate greater value to the lifelong skill of learning .

Like the questions.

 

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 22, 2:07 PM

Whether in school or the work place, we talk about measurable goals and objectives but most of us struggle to define how those goals or objectives might be measured. Now that's often because the goals and objectives aren't actually measurable, but it's mostly because we don't think through what we're actually asking students or employees to accomplish.  For students, success and progress can be measured when they see "that [their] learning, not [their] intelligence" matters. For  employees, success and progress can be measured in much the same way.

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, February 18, 2014 12:56 PM

Carol Dwek's Mindset is based on a lot of research she has done over the years. It has applications throughout higher education. 

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:09 AM

So one who wants to make a change must have a positive outlook on new situations or task that they are not used to?

 

This article is about how one can gain or become a part of the group that is a growth mind set. You gain success or become a better person by following these changes.

Changing the Education Conversation

Changing the Education Conversation | On Learning & Education: What Parents Need to Know | Scoop.it

by Anne OBrien, Edutopia

 

We hear so many negative things about public education in America -- most notably, that our schools are failing. 

 

This rhetoric is impacting the education community.


To lead the effort to change the conversation, this year LFA is launching a messaging campaign to frame the conversation about our public schools in a way that reaffirms the importance of the publicly-funded universal education opportunity and highlights work underway and strategies for working together to implement change.
