Can Playing Minecraft Foster a Growth Mindset?

Can Playing Minecraft Foster a Growth Mindset? | Science and maths resources | Scoop.it

"My co-teacher Renee was sitting next to two students while they played within one of their Minecraft worlds on their iPads. Totally immersed, they hardly noticed that she was in their presence. Our students have shown an amazing ability to sustain focus on the worlds they create, build, destroy, and create again. There is no need to develop 'stamina' with Minecraft, like we might with a more school-related task such as silent reading. Always a teacher, I am continuously thinking about how we can guide our students toward producing authentic examples of what they are learning through this game. Our state department of education, which provided the funding for our club, would like some data to show the level of effectiveness of our activities in terms of student learning. Here are some indicators that the skills the students are naturally learning while playing Minecraft might actually be helping them develop essential lifelong skills." | by Matt Renwick

Bryan Kay's curator insight, October 22, 2015 8:13 PM

I chose this resource to inform me about the latest technology trends.

 

Being able to connect with students is huge! I want to allow my teachers opportunities to experiement and utilize things that are of interest to the students.

 

My principal allows me time to implement a "genius hour" in to my week and the kids love it! This is a time when the best work of my students is demonstrated.

Malcolm Gladwell: Do Genetic Advantages Make Sports Unfair?

Malcolm Gladwell: Do Genetic Advantages Make Sports Unfair? | Science and maths resources | Scoop.it
What we are watching when we watch elite sports is a contest among wildly disparate groups of people, who approach the starting line with an uneven set of genetic endowments and natural advantages. We want sports to be fair and we take elaborate measures to make sure that no one competitor has an advantage over any other. But how can a fantastic menagerie ever be a contest among equals?

The Gift of Failure: The Crucial Difference Between Success and Mastery

The Gift of Failure: The Crucial Difference Between Success and Mastery | Science and maths resources | Scoop.it

"'You gotta be willing to fail… if you’re afraid of failing, you won’t get very far,' Steve Jobs cautioned. How, then, can we transcend that mental block, that existential worry, that keeps us from the very capacity for creative crash that keeps us growing and innovating? That’s precisely what curator and art advocate Sarah Lewis, who has under her belt degrees from Harvard and Oxford, curatorial positions at the Tate Modern and the MoMA, and an appointment on President Obama’s Arts Policy Committee, examines in The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery (public library) — an exploration of how 'discoveries, innovations, and creative endeavors often, perhaps even only, come from uncommon ground' and why this 'improbable ground of creative endeavor' is an enormous source of advantages on the path to self-actualization and fulfillment, brought to life through a tapestry of tribulations turned triumphs by such diverse modern heroes as legendary polar explorer Captain Scott, dance icon Paul Taylor, and pioneering social reformer Frederick Douglass." | by Maria Popova
