Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
I was asked recently why I have a strong interest and innate understanding of the growth mindset. I believe it comes from a background of being an adventure educator, and even though it was not lab...

Jackie Gerstein shares her thoughts on what beliefs a growth mindset facilitator will have. From my experience we seem to have a growing number of learners whom may struggle with growth mindset. As an educator you may find some suggestions that you could incorporate into your classroom.

Lorraine Danton's curator insight, April 20, 2015 10:00 PM

Students can grow--we need to be there to gently push them past their limits with the the understanding that there will be failure and it is okay.

The Other 21st Century Skills: Why Teach Them

The Other 21st Century Skills: Why Teach Them | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase).  I have an affinity towards the skills identified by Tony...

It seems like a normal thing to do. These are needed SKILLs our students need to have.

Jackie Gerstein reviews the skills identified by Tony Wagner as well as six additional skills and attributes she believes learners need today.  She then looks at a recent Gallup Poll that looks at Americans expectations of schools today. Quoting from the post:

"While student success may depend on mastery of content in core subject areas such as math and reading, it also depends on more than knowledge of core content. Critical thinking, creativity, communication, and other soft skills, as well as student physical and social wellbeing, are also necessary for future success in higher education and in the workplace. Americans Say U.S. Schools Should Teach “Soft” Skills"

The post continues and explores how the other 21st century skills may be classified as social-emotional skills and how the growth of these skills may positively impact students in other areas. As always Gerstein has provided a post that pushes boundaries and provides a variety of resources.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
A major criticism I have of most educational institutions is that their primary focus is on students' intellectual and cognitive development.  Too often individual learner's needs do not enter into...

Gary Harwell's insight:

It is so important that these needs b e served and work towards the top. How does technology fit into the equation is and always has been a relevant question. this article seems to have solved that question and should be adhered to.

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

A fresh perspective on Maslow's Pyramid of Needs

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 29, 2014 9:43 PM

I really like this pyramid. It certainly makes the psychology of learning clear.

This great visual shares Jackie Gerstein's look at the 21st century skills suggested by Tony Wagner. Along with the four listed above, effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving, curiosity and imagination, and agility and adaptability learn a bit more about:

* Collaboration across Networks

* Initiative and Entrepreneurship

* Grit and Perseverance

* Resilience

* Hope and Optimism

* Vision for the Future

* Empathy and Global Stewardship

* Self Regulation

Gerstein has written more on each of these areas and links to her work are also available on this post.
