Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool | INTELIGENCIA GLOBAL | Scoop.it
It's important to recognize that a growth mindset is an overall paradigm for personal development rather than a pedagogical tool for measuring academic accomplishment.

Growth mindset should be a philosophy in teaching and learning. Does it replace pedagogy? I don't think so, but I think they work together. Max van Manen's work in the area of thoughtful pedagogy fits well with growth mindset.

Working with learners of low SES and whose environment more often than not ensures they have a fixed mindset, it is important that we help them to redefine what success is. Too often it is fixed around being rich, having a big car, house, jewellery etc. These learners then become preoccupied with looking for the short-cut to success, to the riches they believe will make them happy. It doesn't work out like that of course. How then to help the alter their thinking? 


Dweck's work is essential in this. But as this article states it cannot be seen as "a task to complete".  It requires a shift in thinking of all in an organisation, a movement for a whole-school way of thinking, involving also parents or carers.  This article by Costa, Garmston and Zimmerman provides a solid basis for promoting growth mindsets in educators.

This article is not specifically related to ICT but it makes some points that all teachers need to consider: how to deal with change, how to grow as a professional, how to collaborate.

Do you discuss growth mindset with your students? Do you also discuss what a fixed mindset is? In this post Jackie Gerstein provides her insights into these areas, and also talks about the grwoth of what she defines as a "toxic mindset" where a students might think:

  • Mediocre is often good enough for me as long as I get the work done.

We are fortunate that she has also provided a "Personal Accountability and Reflection" series of questions, which is shown in the infographic above, and also listed in the post. Below are two of the questions.

  • Did I work as hard as I could have?
  • Did I regulate my procrastination, distractions, and temptations in order to complete my work?

These are great questions to use with your students. How do you think  your students would answer them? Would they acknowledge how they are working accurately?

Educational Leadership: Reflections on Resilience

Educational Leadership:  Reflections on Resilience | INTELIGENCIA GLOBAL | Scoop.it

"Resilience begins with beliefs. If you believe in the capacity of all individuals to demonstrate resilience, you won't give up on them. Your actions, words, and behaviors will project that message and will awaken and foster resilience in your students."

I chose this article because it explores ways to mitigate adversity and nourish personal stregnth such as:

*developing caring relationships

*setting high expectations

*creating opportunities to participatate and contribute

This supports the importance of developing "soft skills" in leaders to help them become effective.

I chose this article because it delves into ways to mitigate adversity and develop personal strength.

 

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:31 PM

Resilience is believing in what you do and even when it gets so hard and you feel so defeated, you just don’t give up. It is believing that you can rise above and achieve something in the face of disaster, disappointment and struggle. Resilience is needed in education or you will not survive. Each day you spend in school building, you carry the hopes and dreams of your students. You also carry their tragedies and trauma. Why do we do this every day over and over again? Because we are believers. We are resilient and we know we hold the potential to change lives and promote success in all of our students.
