This short video does a great job comparing Growth Mindset and Fixed Mindset. You can find additional resources about mindset at a post Musing on Mindsets located at http://insidetheclassroomoutsidethebox.wordpress.com/2014/04/13/musings-on-mindset

LibrarianLand's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:38 PM

Slick but effective video illustrating the difference between a fixed, less conducive to learning mindset and the more open, growth-oriented type of outlook.

A Really, Really Cool Website For Students Who Think They Hate Math

A Really, Really Cool Website For Students Who Think They Hate Math | Learning disabilities  and assistive technology | Scoop.it

"The best resource for a student that thinks they hate math is a great teacher.

But what about the best resource for that teacher? Beyond an active imagination, ability to relate to students, and an incredibly strong content knowledge themselves, it may not get much better than Numberphile .

 

While the site is simple a crudely interactive graphic with links to videos, it has, in one fell swoop, creatively curated some of the most compelling and engaging “problems” in mathematics. From Benford’s Law to French Numbers, to whether or not zero is an even number, it frames the content area of math–which is often riddled with rote practice of very traditional arithmetic and formulas–in a problem-based learning kind of approach.

Fantastic resource for bell ringers, test questions, math project-based learning ideas, or as a model for students to curate their own curiosities about the incredible–and poorly marketed–world of mathematics.

 

It’s also, incidentally, a YouTube channel as well, from which we’ve taken a sample video below."

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 20, 2015 7:30 PM

I chose this because I highly believe that knowing your mindset will definitely be beneficial in knowing to you learn and study.  Kids have fixed mindset, and kids have growth mindset.  As educators, a big task will be to change students from fixed mindsets to growth mindsets.  Know what your dealing with is a bonus in knowing your approach on how to mold and shape a student academically.

Darla Hatton and her daughter,  Kaila (who is dyslexic) personally researched and/or tested these 25 mobile apps in December 2012 on the iPhone and iPad. They note: "New editions may change the nature of an app, making it less LD-friendly. “New” may not mean “better” for you.. They can make the writing process a bit easier and even fun! Not every app will be a “perfect fit” for everyone who has LD, but with a little testing, you can figure out which one works best for your child or teen’s individual needs."
