I have already seen this shared in other ways but it is well worth sharing again. But don't keep it to yourself! Make sure you share it with your admin team. This isn't a preachy, heavy-handed treatise but rather a friendly piece of advice that should help principals in the management of their schools. Love the Library Girl!

Avoiding "Learned Helplessness" | eSkills | Curation | Education | Scoop.it
Curate and Create Learning Resources


If we want to have students seek out other information from sources other than the teacher, then we must make sure those resources are available. Many teachers using the flipped classroom approach already have created or found these kinds of resources. However, think broadly about the word resource.


People are resources, texts are resources, and community organizations are resources -- to name just a few categories. We have to be comfortable not always knowing the answer, and instead suggesting we find the answer together through the vast amount of learning resources that we have at our disposal.


Try curating these resources before, during, and after a unit. Work with students as well to create a culture where the answers are everywhere.

There seems to be lots of room for libraries and librarians to interject their skill sets with these 7 shifts, especially in the areas of digital literacy, research literacy, physical-to-digital, connectivism... My biggest takeaway, though, is the idea that none of these ideas require a huge influx of funding - they can all be done tomorrow with concerted effort in the education community.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 9:46 AM

Gifted children often display their gifted talents in different areas.  Some children are gifted in science, others in math, others in music...and some show extraordinary talents in several areas. It is not the label that is placed on the child's ability, but what is done to develop and support that ability. The enrichment and challenge that is provided at home and in school can raise the demonstration of talent to high levels - however, this enrichment and challenge must be coupled with the social and emotional support that develops a life-long learner.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 9:51 AM

Gifted education often talks about the twice-exceptional learner - one whose intellectual gifts are coupled and often masked by a learning disability.  There is also a phenomena of the gifted student who lives in a state of poverty.  Often trapped in a high poverty school that focuses on remediation and intervention.  Poverty schools must embrace a growth mindset about students, believing that every student can develop their gifts and talents.  They must differentiate the learning experiences that provide pathways for students to access deeper learning with complex thinking within the content.  This is a tall order for teachers who are burdened with learning gaps, behavior problems, and social issues...but with over 50% of our students living in poverty, we cannot afford to miss the development of the gifts and talents that lie buried under poverty.

Tony Guzman's curator insight, May 30, 7:36 PM
