What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 15, 2014 6:18 PM

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"Librarians are really nice people. But sometimes, nice isn’t what’s needed. The issue isn’t that “we need to act more like businesses.” Ninety percent of businesses fail in the first year.

We need to act like successful enterprises. It’s not about public or private. It means we need to be clear about our goals, and manage ourselves to get there. That means, on occasion, inviting people out!"

The Future of Work: A Manifesto — on management — Medium

The Future of Work: A Manifesto — on management — Medium | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
This manifesto is about the future of work in a post-­Cluetrain world.
Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:
Work matters. We want work to suck less—for everyone, not just the few lucky ones.The disti­nction between “work” and “life” is artif­icial and a barrier to lever­aging both the power of the indiv­idual and that of the organ­ization.Work is the expending of effort for the creation of value. If there’s no effort, but it’s still consi­dered work, it should be autom­ated; if there’s no value, the work is pointless and wasteful.Work is the process of creating something for the purpose of human flour­ishing. Let’s get rid of what doesn’t do that. Work has meaning for every indiv­idual. Work involves identity.Work involves a sense of belon­ging. Work has meaning for the networks each indiv­idual is connected to. Work has meaning for the local community and for the global commu­nity. Work involves social respo­nsibility.
