The Progress-Focused Approach: Developing a Growth Mindset - How individuals and organizations benefit from it

The Progress-Focused Approach: Developing a Growth Mindset - How individuals and organizations benefit from it | Literacy | Scoop.it

Does success or failure depend on whether you do or don’t happen to have some or other fixed talent? Is it true that you either have talent or you haven’t? How are these questions relevant for organizations? This article is about the importance of the growth mindset, the belief in the mutability of human capabilities by effort and experience. A lot of evidence shows that the belief in the changeability of capabilities is an important condition for that change. This belief turns out to be realistic. Anything that people do can be seen as developable skills. What does this insight imply for how we manage and educate people? How can in we, in our organizations, develop a growth mindset culture?

"The ability to change is among the least-appreciated professional characteristics of a teacher.

 

This is especially true as education systems react to both external pressure, and internal instinct to change into something closer to truly progressive learning environments."

Dette link handle om at det at have growth mindset versus et fixed mindset. 

Det er vigtigt at være sig selv bevidst om hvordan vi opfatter elevernes indsat for at blive bedre til noget, og ligeledes hvad det er vi rose og værdsætter. Er det indsatsen eller målet for indsatsen.

"Hvor var det flot det du gjorde" eller "hvor har du gjort en stor indsat for når der til"

"growth mindset has the power to stick and transform how we think, act and talk in ways that propel students powerfully into their future."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 4, 2015 11:07 PM

Deep learning, if it draws from deep ecology, is about doing things differently which does not always mean that it is about growth in the way we normally understand progress. It is about deep meaning in our learning and teaching.

Top Ten Tips for developing a Growth Mindset in your Classroom

Top Ten Tips for developing a Growth Mindset in your Classroom | Literacy | Scoop.it

Imagine if every classroom, every teacher instilled this culture within your school. Every day, every hour, every minute. It would be transformational. Look to see how it affects the learning culture within your classroom and be prepared to share it with others. Teachers can be the very antithesis of a growth mindset. Having routines and expectations of ‘that bottom set’, which haven’t changed in the last 20 years. This is your biggest challenge. Embrace it!

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?

Growth mindset: What interventions might work and what probably won’t?

The claim that there are attributional differences between pupils which can affect their experience of school and their academic outcomes is well supported. You can read a bit more about some of the psychology behind the idea of a ‘growth mindset’ here: Growth Mindset: It’s not magic However, accepting that these key attributional variables exist still leaves at least two important questions that school leaders and teachers should be asking before seeking to implement ‘growth mindset’ interventions in schools.

Growth Mindset SchoolKit to be released

Growth Mindset SchoolKit to be released | Literacy | Scoop.it

Carol Dweck's growth mindset work is being seen as a key to closing the achievement gap.

 

On March 24th, at the annual ASCD conference, we will announce our Mindset Works SchoolKit™ - an all-inclusive offering to instill a growth mindset in schools, backed by the U.S. Department of Education.

 

The SchoolKit includes site leader planning tools, online teacher professional development, our award-winning Brainology® blended learning curriculum and tools that students and teachers can continue to use on an ongoing basis to live and deepen the growth mindset.

 

Why the Growth Mindset?

 

The growth mindset, the understanding of intelligence and abilities as being up to one to develop, has been shown over and over to have powerful ramifications on student learning and school success.

 

When teachers and students focus on improvement rather than on whether they're smart, kids learn a lot more. As Jeff Raikes, CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently said, Carol Dweck's growth mindset work is being seen as a key to closing the achievement gap.

Nurturing Intrinsic Motivation and Growth Mindset in Writing | Amy Conley | Edutopia.org

Nurturing Intrinsic Motivation and Growth Mindset in Writing | Amy Conley | Edutopia.org | Literacy | Scoop.it

It's the first writing conference, four weeks into the year, with this blond senior. He stiffly leans back from me as far as the metal desk will allow, exuding cynicism, too cool for meeting with teachers about his writing. I can see he doesn't trust me yet or know why we conference, and he's afraid. He says, "So, what is this meeting about then?" And we begin.

 

Conferencing and portfolios work for me. Over the last 13 years of teaching English, I've developed a system of folders for work, held regular quarterly conferences with every student, and instituted cover letters in which students introduce, explain, and critique their writing at the end of the year. I also teach California State University's Expository Reading and Writing Course, a curriculum for high school seniors that encourages teachers to coach writing and students to write for real audiences.

 

After the course, students report growth in their writing -- new confidence, success in their next-year college classes, higher EPT scores, and perhaps most importantly, ownership of their writing. Scholarship from the 1980s to the present supports my own findings and reiterates that portfolios and writing conferences can sometimes be very successful.

 

But I wish the research would point to these systems as consistent and universal means of student growth. It does not. The research suggests that these practices improve student writing only along with the qualifier of enthusiastic teachers who create meaningful systems for their own classrooms. It worked in my classroom, but I was bothered that the research was so tepid. I kept doing portfolios and conferences in my classroom, noting anecdotal and statistical success for my students.

 

Then, two years ago, I read Daniel Pink's Drive and Carol Dweck's Mindset, and I realized that a system of portfolios and conferences was not enough to change student engagement on its own. The way I thought and talked with my students about their writing and learning had also changed. The words out of my mouth in the classroom changed the way students thought about their writing even more than portfolios and conferencing.

More than twenty years after Dr. Carol Dweck initiated her groundbreaking research on the power of mindsets, her findings have influenced a growing conversation about resilience, perseverance, and grit as determinants of student success. Her derivatives of attribution theory, growth mindset versus fixed mindset, have been used to emphasize the potency of words both in their intent as well as their consequences.

I have written before about my thoughts around Growth Mindset. Whilst I appreciate the valid concerns expressed by others about the dangers of overstatement and the need for coherent informed implementation, I very much believe that Dweck’s theories about learning and growth have an important role to play in educating young people – for now and for the future – and that her ideas can really help the students in our school to go from strength to strength.

* Self-Efficacy

* Sense of Belonging

* Relevance

"The Pajarao Valley Unified School District has an excellent collection of resources on Professor Carol Dweck’s work, and it’s been on The Best Resources On Helping Our Students Develop A “Growth Mindset” list for quite awhile.

 

"However, they created another related resource that, for some reason, I discovered is not on that list. It’s an exceptional PowerPoint presentation on how to provide feedback to students that promotes a growth mindset. And, in an added bonus, a portion of it speaks directly to parents.

 

"I’m adding to to both The Best Resources For Learning How To Best Give Feedback To Students and to The Best Ideas On How Parents Can Help Their Kids Succeed Academically."

1.Information about the growth mindset: by means of presentation, an article, and a video an explanation is given about how people are capable of learning. The video shows how new connections are formed in the brain during learning.


2. Let participants explain the importance: the participants are asked to mention at least 3 reasons why it is important for people to recognize that they can develop their capabilities.

 

3.Identify and analyze own growth experience: the participants are asked to describe how they have managed to become better in something which they used to be not so good at.


4.Explain to someone else: the participants are asked to explain to a hypothetical other person how s/he can develop his/her capabilities.


5.Learning from someone else’s growth
