Why Feedback Should Come in the Middle, Not at the End - InformED

Why Feedback Should Come in the Middle, Not at the End - InformED | Libraries 2.0 | Scoop.it

Traditionally, we give and receive feedback at the end of projects, assignments, and units. But is this the best way to ensure progress? Researchers are saying it’s not, especially when it comes to encouraging creativity. For optimal academic achievement, teachers and students should consider placing feedback somewhere in the middle. In their study, “An Inductive... Read More

Andrea Zeitz's curator insight, February 12, 2015 11:27 PM

 Based on the work of Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, the idea of mindset is related to our understanding of where ability comes from. It has recently been seized upon by educators as a tool to explore our knowledge of student achievement, and ways that such achievement might be improved.

This gives great insight into the gap that exists between technology and education. Although students are masters at using technology, where the dire need is is in solving problems with it. Teachers are vital in teaching students to think critically and use what is available to them to really innovate.

Great article, Diana!


Though I gotta admit use of the word SHOULD always get's my oppositional defiant hackles rising. Because I don't want to GUILT people into innovation.


Maybe I woulda used the word COULD or 6 Active Learning Spaces Cool for Your Library. But then again, I'm weird that way! ALWAYS love your ideas & advocacy Diana! You're my Makerspace guru!

I find it very interesting that this conversation about design in the classroom REALLY started as a conversation about design in the media center! For years, we've been talking about creating learning zones, small group and large group areas, quiet spaces and collaborative spaces - all designed to make the media center a warm, inviting, energizing environment in which to access and create knowledge. I love that we are also thinking about how to make this work in classrooms and I think middle and high school teachers could take a page out of the elementary classroom teachers' book!

As with most education jargon, the phrase isn’t fixed, but it usually connects to the idea that not all students need the same thing at the same time. It implies choice, multiple pathways to learning, many ways to demonstrate competency and resists the notion that all students learn the same way.

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 15, 2015 8:47 AM

I did not find this article of much use, as I do not agree with the premise: "Being a connected educator today is one of the most important hallmarks of effective twenty-first century leadership."  Mmmm.... I don't know about that.  Being digitally connected is a positive thing, but I would not concur that it's a major tenet of providing quality leadership.  The author does concede, "Of course simply HAVING a twitter account doesn’t automatically equate to being a connected educator."  In my opinion, Twitter or no, if you're not a good leader, any amount of technology is not going to help you become one. We need to be careful not to overemphasize technology. There is a definite place for it, but it does not replace the core significance of knowledgeable and personable school leaders.  Our administrator has taken our school leaps and bounds over the last decade, and he doesn't even have a Facebook page.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 15, 2015 8:58 PM

Interesting to me that leadership "now-a'days" requires a digitally connected person. I have to admit that this "scoop it thing has turned my facebook into a pedestal for all of my idealistic educational philosophies. It does make me sit back and think deeply about topics that are important in my career but does it make me better at my job and more successful at it? Not so sure. I go back and forth with technology. We have a love/hate relationship. I think it can be distracting and take away from the essence of face to face communication. With that said, it is here to stay so I will continue to brace it.
