Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 15, 2014 9:36 PM

Who knew that the Growth Mindset is just one component of the Academic Mindsets? (My answer would be "not me.") Having stumbled on this post from mimio I knew I had to share it. Learn about three other mindsets that our students need to be aware of:

* Self-Efficacy

* Sense of Belonging

* Relevance

Are these mindsets you use in our classroom? How might you incorporate them? What will your students think about them?

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of eLearning: Learners need to learn how to learn

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of eLearning: Learners need to learn how to learn | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it

LearnerAgain I think the ‘cover-all’ term should be learner.  I think most of the other terms place the learner in a secondary position to the teacher, which is often not the case.  How many of us have experienced that moment when our children or grandchildren show us how to use the latest technology, play the latest game (online or physical) or use the latest terminology?  More recently, the idea of the teacher/student relationship has been ‘adjusted’ by the advent of online learning and the opening up of education generally to older learners.  Perhaps universities are the last bastion of the tutor/student relationship but even here there is a move towards mentorship – “the guide on the side” is now a well-developed idea in higher education. 

So what is the role of the (online) learner?
