Harnessing the attitude of a ‘growth mindset’ in our students

Harnessing the attitude of a ‘growth mindset’ in our students | Education issues | Scoop.it

Connecting research on learning and the brain:

metacognition (‘knowing about knowing‘)executive functions‘ (the ability to self-regulate: make plans, track your own progress and recall prior knowledge etc.)Harnessing the attitude of a ‘growth mindset’ in our students (and, crucially, our teachers!). The most important aspect is the tangible details in practice. Using words like ‘yet‘ are tiny, but they can have a cumulative impact upon how a student approaches their learning – their executive functioning can be strengthened if their attitude is resilient.Adapting written and verbal feedback can make lots of marginal gains in terms of enhancing metacognition and therefore it can improve learning.effective revision strategies according to research studies here.Assessment for Learning...impact of testing (not necessarily a formal exam each time – but quizzes or a retrieval task – like creating a visual map of what they have learnt during the week can also constitute ‘testing‘) does make a tangible difference to learning – see here. Our rightly held reservations about external school tests shouldn’t cloud our attitude to utilising testing for learning in the classroom.

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | Education issues | Scoop.it

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 5:58 AM

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

This fits really well with the SIM work that has been happening!  It is a nice visual representation of the Dwek work.

 

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 7:06 AM

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | Education issues | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 1:28 PM

I can't believe kids are doing more than 40% of their writing outside of school. "Life writing" may make grammar teachers cringe, but at least students are engaging with others and sharing ideas in this format.

Catherine Byrd Bushby's curator insight, June 21, 7:13 PM

That's why we need to bring social writing into school.

Teaching a Growth Mindset

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, October 19, 2013 4:23 AM

In this talk Carol Dweck answers: 


- Where do mindsets come from?
- What is the role of motivation in learning?
- How do mindsets affect students' achievements?
- What can teachers do to encourage students to face challenges rather than be overwhelmed by them?
- Changing the meaning of failure and effort.

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, October 19, 2013 8:15 AM

This makes all the difference!  let's standardize the growth model!

Bryson Walb's curator insight, January 28, 6:52 PM

Well this isn't specifically e-learning but since we are so focused on course design I think this perspective can inform the way we communicate with students and support them through challenges and the joy of accomplishment.
