Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | Jaimee | Scoop.it

"Educational psychology has focused on the concepts of learned helplessness and more currently growth-fixed mindsets as a way to explain how and why students give up in the classroom setting.  These ideas can also be applied to educators in this day of forced standardization, testing, scripted curriculum, and school initiatives."


Via Beth Dichter, Lynnette Van Dyke, Bonnie Bracey Sutton
Jaimee's insight:

Teachers not just family members can be a part of a students mindset. How they think and what challenges to make can also be in response to how teachers are teaching them.  

 

This article explains in a way how helplessness can be a part of someone not being successful. It explains the initiative that someone must take to be successful in school.

This is a thought provoking article for both teachers and administrators. 

Xander Norris's curator insight, March 6, 2014 11:13 AM

This article is talking about how educators are moving from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, and this has to do with the changes of the curriculum, and forced standardization. This is talking about how success is based on learning, and why some students give up on it.

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | Jaimee | Scoop.it

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."


Via Beth Dichter
Jaimee's insight:

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 8:58 AM

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

Anorexia, Pregnancy and Abortion: The Surprising Statistics by Sylvia Anderson - Women's Health - InsidersHealth.com | Jaimee | Scoop.it

Young women suffering with anorexia nervosa have an intense fear of becoming fat and losing control over how much food they eat. They have a strong need to feel in control of their environment and emotions. Low self-esteem makes them feel undeserving of life's pleasures so they deprive themselves of anything that could make them happy ...

Mikayla Price's curator insight, February 27, 2014 3:24 PM

Because of all the health problems, menstrual periods can disappear, causing many anorexics to think they can't become pregnant. That isn't the case, and many of them do. Because they don't get enough nutrition or calories, their babies are often born smaller and malnourished, and have a lot of complications. Also, mothers are usually too concerned with their own problems that they can't help with their child's issues, or the mothers impose this unhealthy lifestyle on their children.

The Rise Of Eating Disorders

The Rise Of Eating Disorders | Jaimee | Scoop.it
Alarming figures released on Thursday show hospital admissions for eating disorders rose by 16% from last year to 2,288.

Via Elizabeth Braden
Jaimee's insight:

Just as much as it can be the media it can also be family members. If you are in a household with someone who on a constant complains about their image a child can then take n see this and imitate what that person is doing. They then will eventually start to actually think something is wrong when there is nothing to be worried about.

Elizabeth Braden's curator insight, January 14, 2014 12:40 PM

It is terrifying how much influence social media has on eating disorders, but I definitely admire that websites like Pinterest are working towards stopping search keywords that relate to eating disorders. I hope other sites will begin to do this as well and families will recognize the issues of eating disorers and teach their kids the dangers and to not listen too much to social media when it come to your body.

Too Much Bodybuilding Obsession Could Lead To Bigorexia In Males

Too Much Bodybuilding Obsession Could Lead To Bigorexia In Males | Jaimee | Scoop.it

Experts feel that a potentially dangerous obsession with bodybuilding is rising among men in the recent times. Muscle dysmorphia is the condition that is just the opposite of anorexia that would make the people suffering from it to believe that they do not have enough muscles. This disorder is fondly known as bigorexia but only fewer facts are available about this condition, as medical practitioners recognized it only in 1997 by doctors. .

Becky Rodriguez's curator insight, February 19, 2014 11:04 PM

If you thought anorexia was bad, well so is bigorexia. Its when you think you dont have enough muscle and want to get bigger(ripped). This situation is mostly on guys who are bodybuilders, they want to presume and show off that there strong. Some of these men over do their workouts by hitting the gym 6 days a week for 6 hours. Bigorexia is a bad disorder you shouldn't want to become addicted in doing. This is basically the opposite of anorexia, because these guys do eat but just make sure they burn all the calories they ate, and are forced to workout to get stronger. Because as men they want to precisely show that they can do anything(lift).

Thinspo Internet sites that glorify extreme thinness are increasing. (Eat for health--love the body God gave you... http://t.co/qrmteeAZ7l)

Via Elissa Berardi
Jaimee's insight:

the "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels" is all over the internet and its for promoting an active life style. This can be taken out of context due to the fact that when a person with a negative idea of their body sees this they go to the extreme. The Latin quote  Quod me nutrit me destruit is something a celebrity has tattooed on them so that can also mean a child who looks up to her can take this and start eliminating certain foods.

This is going to be my primary focus for my research paper on Bulimia: Do woman have more eating disorders than men/do men and women differ? There are not many articles on men with bulimia, but there are cases of it. I think this is something we need to be aware of in society: eating disorders are not primarily focused on women, men can be affected by it too.
