We do get hung up on intelligence (and IQ) when there is SO much more to "producing" than that.  Love the idea of a growth mindset.  Thinking about "possibility" means you strive to better yourself.

Warning: Good Grades May Harm Student Health

Warning: Good Grades May Harm Student Health | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
by Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. This article makes the case that good grades matter far less in school than developing internal strengths like critical thinking, compassion, and curiosity.

 

Even for children who naturally perform well on academic tests, a good grade is only one measurement of success.

 

===> A few things that school testing cannot measure include: <===

 

- Open-Mindedness

- Effort

- Social & Emotional Intelligence

- Critical Thinking

- Initiative

- Creativity

- Collaboration

- Curiosity

- Respect

- Kindness

- Capacity to love

- Honesty

- Compassion

 

Internal strengths, like those listed above, are far more important to a life of success and well-being than whether a child earns an “A” on an Algebra exam or are accepted to a top-rated university. In fact, many tests only measure a student’s ability to produce a correctly memorized answer.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 17, 2013 10:46 AM

(From the article): These three elements of communication reinforce one another. You may rely heavily on data and analysis (logos) to make a point and in so doing create a perception of expertise and authority on a topic (ethos). And while all three are necessary to excellent communication, improving your ability to do any one of them will help you become a better communicator and so a better leader. Combining them is the path to achieving the greatest success.

Gust MEES's curator insight, January 17, 2013 8:41 PM

In the word ICT is the letter "C" which means "Communication" and as such it is THE most important letter, SO, learning about "Communication" is a MUST ;)

Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano has an interesting and highly visual post on collecting vs. curating with Twitter, and on the curation potential Twitter has in store for those involved in education.

 

She quotes Mike Fisher writing: "Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.

 

Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task."

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

 

Full article: http://langwitches.org/blog/2013/01/03/twitter-as-a-curation-tool/#&nbsp;

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robin's curated posts hits it on the nail with the distinct differences and although I like the visual aspects of the post, I struggle with referring to Twitter as a curating tool.

 

It is certainly a critical tool for collecting, researching and having the conversations. I think there is a challenge on how to effectively curate with Twitter. I know many use Storify to do this which is often a re- representationof the tweets.

 

 I am very interested in how Twitter will use Summnify aand Posterous in the field of curation.

 

As a result, I really likw the distinctions made and the logic the author takes us through. I would  perhaps be a little more cautious with referring  Twitter as a curation tool.
