Five Myths About Classroom Technology (And What To Do, Instead) (EdSurge News)

Five Myths About Classroom Technology (And What To Do, Instead) (EdSurge News) | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it
Classroom technology is everywhere. Schools are filled with shiny, interactive devices, and new gadgets and apps flood the market every day. Teachers in districts with limited funding for technology are turning to crowdfunding sources to obtain technology for their classrooms.
Is technology the pan

Growth mindset guru Carol Dweck says teachers and parents often use her research incorrectly - The Hechinger Report

Growth mindset guru Carol Dweck says teachers and parents often use her research incorrectly - The Hechinger Report | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it
Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck has become something of a cult figure in education and parenting circles. Her research into boosting student motivation has spawned a mini industry of consultants, sold more than a million books and changed the way that many adults praise children. Dweck believes too many students are hobbled by the belief that intelligence …

 

Praising effort alone 

Many parents and teachers have interpreted Dweck’s work to mean that they should praise a child’s effort, such as “I’m proud that you tried really hard,” or “I see how much effort you put into this.” Or teachers sometimes give A’s on assignments if a child has attempted all of the questions, regardless of whether the answers are good or not.

“It’s like the consolation prize. ‘Oh, at least you worked hard,'” said Dweck. “What if they didn’t make progress or they didn’t learn?”

Praising effort alone, she says, is useless when the child is getting everything wrong and not making progress. Either students will feel misled when they are eventually confronted with the reality of their low achievement, or the hollow praise will convey adults’ low expectations for them.

Effort without results is hardly better for learning than results without effort.

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, November 27, 2015 6:57 PM

It's important that praise be aligned with relevant and useful feedback. All learners need to know what they are doing right, and what they are getting wrong, in order to progress.

Dixie Binford's curator insight, November 30, 2015 10:16 AM

Implementation with fidelity is important when new strategies from research comes to the classroom.  We often "cherry-pick" what we feel comfortable with but it is necessary to "lean in" and implement as intended by the author or researcher.  Be committed to self-reflection and evaluation of the progress you see in students.  Adjust, refine and commit to improving your execution.

Watch out for your own fixed mindset, Carol Dweck tells teachers | Growth Mindset

Watch out for your own fixed mindset, Carol Dweck tells teachers | Growth Mindset | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it
Carol Dweck, the respected academic behind the “growth mindset” theory that has taken education by storm, has warned teachers to be aware of their own “fixed mindset” ideas. Writing for US publication Education Week, Professor Dweck said every teacher had a “fixed mindset” in some circumstances and a “growth mindset” in others, and that greater awareness of this could help teachers improve their practice.
