Some great tips on active reading. Think about how you can use some of these strategies with the e-mails you receive. Practice answering the question "what it says" in one sentence.

Why Reading Strategies Usually Don't Help the Better Readers

Why Reading Strategies Usually Don't Help the Better Readers | Learning at distance | Scoop.it

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff | Learning at distance | Scoop.it

In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it (Morehead 2012).

Worst practice in ICT use in education

Worst practice in ICT use in education | Learning at distance | Scoop.it
In business and in international development circles, much is made about the potential for 'learning from best practice'. Considerations of the use of educational technologies offer no exception to this impulse. That said, 'best practice' in the education sector is often a rather elusive concept (at best! some informed observers would say it is actually dangerous). The term 'good practice' may be more useful, for in many (if not most) cases and places, learning from and adapting 'good' practices
