The Power of "I Don't Know"

The Power of "I Don't Know" | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Educators are tasked with teaching students how to find answers themselves. And it all starts with a simple three-word phrase: I don't know.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 27, 10:04 AM

Being able to say I don't know opens up a space where teachers and students can enter. It is a conversational space where exploring takes place and learning happens. It does not guarantee what learning will happen, but learning will happen in that vulnerable space.

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

Coaches operate with an underlying assumption that giving advice to others undermines the confidence and self-worth of others.  Others don’t need to be fixed.  In teaching we need to move to exactly this stance in order to foster creativity in our students–to allow our students the choice, control, novelty and challenge that builds their creativity. 


Without the assumption that our students are already competent, imaginative, and ready to burst forth with regular exhibitions of novel and valuable ideas and products, we are limiting their creative capacities before they’ve even had a chance to discover them.

Growth is the key to success!

Allan Shaw's curator insight, September 29, 7:26 PM

It remains easy to slip back into the mindset, perhaps habitual, that knowledge is something to be transmitted by the teacher and the student is an empty vessel to be filled. While there is some truth in this stereotype, research on neuro-plasticity, understandings about how learning occurs, and about interpersonal skills suggest clearly that a growth mindset model is more useful for teaching and learning  with children and young adults.

HP Labs is working on a glass 3D printer | Signe Brewster | GigaOM Tech News | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

HP isn’t content to just 3D print in plastic. A job ad for a “robotics scientist for 3D printing” sounds normal enough until you dive into the text and read this:

“HP Labs’ research into printing of inorganic materials is working towards hybrid printing of glass (and other inorganic materials) onto items that are already mass produced,” the ad reads.

3D printing is generally reserved for working with plastic and metal. Glass is unusual. But HP has its reasons. According to a 2012 HP Labs paper:

With 90% of the earth’s crust composed of silicate minerals, there will be no shortage of silica resources. Glass is easy to recycle and is environmentally friendly. Glass is inexpensive but looks precious, is pleasant to the touch and is so familiar that customers will not be disappointed by its fragility— under certain conditions.
