Are you interested in learning more about how grit is a 21st century skill? Jackie Gerstein provides an in-depth look at grit in this post. You will find an image with a great definition, a TED Talk by Angela Duckworth on grit, as well as a link to a quiz that allows you to measure your grit level compared to others, and a list of some of the "characteristics or dispositions of Grit."

Perhaps you are asking yourself how can I work grit into my classroom? 

For example, project based learing, or having students work on independent study projects (think passion-driven) provide opportunities for students to use some of the dispositions discussed, such as tenacity, self-control, self-discipling and long-term goal oriented. 

As always, there is a robust list of additional resources.

How Google Impacts The Way Students Think

How Google Impacts The Way Students Think | Information Literacy Instruction | Scoop.it

"It’s always revealing to watch learners research. When trying to understand complex questions often as part of multi-step projects, they often simply “Google it.”

Why do people migrate? Google it.

Where does inspiration come from? Google it.

How do different cultures view humanity differently? Google it.

Literally Google it. Type those questions word-for-word into the Google search box and hope for answers..."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:09 PM

Today many students when asked a question choose to Google the answer. A generation is turning to one (or perhaps two or three) search engines and reading the top two or three results. As educators we should think about how this type of search is impacting how our students think. This post explores this, looking at three areas:

1. Google creates the illusion of accessibility

2. Google naturally suggests “answers” as stopping points

3. Being linear, Google obscures the interdependence of information

What do you think? Do you think Google is impacting student learning? Do you think that project based learning, inquiry learning, authentic learning projects would provide opportunities for students to not only search, but to use their critical thinking skills? This post may make you look at search engines in a different way.

5 Ways to Collect Digital Exit Tickets

5 Ways to Collect Digital Exit Tickets | Information Literacy Instruction | Scoop.it

"One of the strategies that I use when creating lesson plans is to reflect on the previous lesson. Part of that reflection includes feedback from students. This can be done by simply asking students to raise their hands in response to a "did you get it?" type of question, but I like to have better record of responses than just a hand count. Here are some tools that can be used for collecting exit information from students."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 10, 2014 10:33 PM

Richard Byrne shares five tools that he uses with students. They are:

* Google Forms

* Padlet

* Socrative

* Poll Everywhere

* Plickers - For the classroom that isn't 1:1

Each tool is discussed and if you search for the tool on his website you will find information about how to use it.

You may find that your students will be more engaged with exit slips if they use technology to respond. In addition, some of these tools provide unique ways to see the response, such as Poll Everywhere which will display feedback as word clouds.

Flipped learning skepticism: Is flipped learning just self-teaching? | The Chronicle of Higher Education | Information Literacy Instruction | Scoop.it

I had to take a bit of a hiatus for the last two weeks to finish up the semester and to give and grade exams. Now that this is over, I wanted to come back and address some of the comments in these two posts. Specifically, many of those comments are principled skepticisms of flipped learning and the flipped classroom, and rather than bury my responses in an already crowded comment thread, I thought they deserved to be brought up point by point for discussion.

This infographic is designed as a comic and explains the ins and outs of using Creative Common images. You might consider using it with students. Originally designed in German this is an English translation by the designer. The infographic designed in German provides an explanation as to how you might read the infographic as a comic, providing short descriptions for each section. You may access the German version at this link: http://www.bildersuche.org/creative-commons-infografik.php and if you use Google translator it will translate the text of the article (but not the infographic).

Dean Mantz's curator insight, July 29, 2013 12:37 AM

As a teacher that strongly believes in visual learning, this is a highly recommended visual to aid in the introduction and understanding of what Creative Commons is and how to use it properly.
