The ‘Grit Narrative’—Demystified

The ‘Grit Narrative’—Demystified | Personal Development | Scoop.it
Why educators are paying more attention to noncognitive factors in the classroom, and whether it’s more than just a fad.

 

Nestled within the New-Age-y sounding concept of “noncognitive factors” are fairly concrete examples of what parents and educators should and shouldn’t do to prepare students for the rigors of college and their careers. Gleaned from research into brain development and human behavior, a toolkit is emerging on how to best respond to and encourage students’ grit, persistence, and the ability to learn from one’s mistakes.

I love how this article combines the two books I would like to have my faculty do as a book study: Grit and Mindset. Both of these books are easy reads but cause one to reflect on what we say and what we encourage/discourage by our practices and how this influences students.

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I was asked recently why I have a strong interest and innate understanding of the growth mindset. I believe it comes from a background of being an adventure educator, and even though it was not labeled as such, the adventure educator embraces a growth mindset when working with participants. The underlying tenet of adventure education is “You are capable of so much more than you can even imagine. I believe in you and your capabilities; and I will set up the conditions for you to develop and amplify that same belief in yourself.”

When School Leaders Empower Teachers, Better Ideas Emerge - Mind/Shift

When School Leaders Empower Teachers, Better Ideas Emerge - Mind/Shift | Personal Development | Scoop.it
Teachers are increasingly being pushed into new roles as their ability to connect online opens up new opportunities. Educators are finding their own professional development, sharing lesson plans and teaching tips with colleagues around the world, and have often become ambassadors to the public on new approaches to teaching and learning. Easy access to information has empowered many educators to think and teach differently, but often those innovations remain isolated inside classrooms. Without a school leader who trusts his or her teachers, it is difficult to convert pockets of innovation into a school culture of empowered teachers.

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn | Personal Development | Scoop.it
Spend more time teaching learning skills. Klemm recommends memory tricks like mnemonic devices, and visualizing ideas as complex images, to help students expand their working memory. “If they knew these things, they wouldn’t have to work so hard and school might even become fun,” Klemm said. “Once students start reflecting and become more self-aware, they have the opportunity to become better students.”

“Working memory gets overloaded,” Kleem said. “Most people can only hold four independent ideas in working memory.” But if images are used to represent a constellation of ideas, people can remember much more. Words are hard to remember, but images stick with people. “It’s like a zip file,” Klemm said. “This is a way to get your working memory to carry more.”

Eduardo Espinoza's curator insight, April 20, 2015 10:09 PM

In this web site you will find important information about models for teaching. For improving education it is necessary to use new methods. In this article some of them will be presented showing the way they work. SAMR model has as a main feature of evaluating and assessing technology used in the classroom. Also it includes the TPACK model and its main characteristics. Another model mentioned here is Maslow and this consists in the knowledge that the teacher has for addressing his students due to the students have different need at learning.

Bloggie's curator insight, April 23, 2015 1:17 AM

Technology integration in instruction requires much more than just digital literacy and technical knowledge. This means that to have the adequate tools and to know how they work, the job is all done, but a teacher needs to know how to adequate these to his students to give them a good content. An important step in the process of effective integration of technology in education is having a pedagogical approach supported by a theoretical framework to ground your technology practices inside the classroom. (Educational Technology and Mobile Leraning, 2014)

According to Abraham Maslow (1954) and his theory of hierarchy needs that teachers can use to address students learning needs… “An ideal way to assess lesson plans, courses and educational programs by asking them whether these needs are being met in their school or classroom, educators can assess how well they are applying Maslow’s hierarchy to their teaching practice". This theory is, obviously, already integrate it to the TPACK model, which is perfect, because if teachers wouldn´t know what students need, the implementing of the technology to the teaching and learning process, the TPACK model would be incomplete.

How “Playing With Technology” Led Me to the Job of My Dreams

How “Playing With Technology” Led Me to the Job of My Dreams | Personal Development | Scoop.it

"What an awesome TED Talk! The description is: “What happens when you’re looking for a job in the middle of a recession? Stop doing what people tell you to do. Charlie Hoehn talks about making up your own rules and how he started only working on things he wanted to pursue and how it changed his life.” I completely agree with Charlie’s premise that we don’t find the work we love with a college degree. We pigeon-hole ourselves into a niche where we have to search on Monster.com for a job, and then despise the search results. Or we write on our resumes “proficient in Microsoft Office” and then wonder why no one cares."
