Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 7, 2015 11:49 AM

The Momentous Institute, based in Dallas Texas, released a set of three great assistive technology tools designed to help learners regulate their emotions.  They are:

  • Settle the Glitter: "Kids have the opportunity to reflect on their good feelings and release worries, improving their mood so they’re better prepared to learn."
  • Breathing Bubbles: "Kids have the opportunity to reflect on their good feelings and release worries, improving their mood so they’re better prepared to learn."
  • Pass the Drop: "Designed for a classroom or group of kids, this app guides children to focus their attention on the present task, increasing their ability to block out distractions."

August , 2017
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

There are excellent ideas in the flow chart i.e. journals, teaching how to deal with challenges, create portfolios to show progress, etc.

Art Costa and Bena Kallick's Habits of Mind would be a nice complement to these.
Diana Jaimes V.'s curator insight, September 2, 2017 9:50 AM
First, this article led me to consider mindset shaping as a powerful tool for learning as any other aspect of life. It explains the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset that normally refers to people constantly learning from any experience. Since their capabilities are not fixed, these people are never closed to a learning experience and always use the trial and error learning. They proposed an infographic with several strategies to foster a growth mindset in our students some of the steps include the use of diverse teaching strategies, explanations of purposes of abstract thinking, teaching values, among others.

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing | Achieve Educate | Scoop.it

"The assessment itself is completely artificial. It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests. Those things you’re not testing.. it's a rank that’s mostly meaningless. And the very ranking itself is harmful.

This blog post is built upon curation and then you curated it - could we call this meta-curation? I really liked the resources that are included in this blog post. I spent 30 minutes exploring the videos and PBL links. Last semester when I was floundering in my new course, I stumbled upon PBL but couldn't figure out what kind of project to create. The links in this post gave me lots of new ideas! Thanks!

How do you create a learning environment that is filled with purposeful, motivated, strategic, goal-directed learners? 

One way to create this type of learning environment is with the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, which aims to develop expert learners. In addition to removing barriers and making learning accessible to the widest varied of learners possible, UDL addresses many of the metacognitive and self-efficacy skills associated with becoming an expert learner, including:

  • Executive functions. These cognitive processes include initiation, goal setting, attention, planning and organization.
  • Comprehension skills. This skillset encompasses knowledge construction, making connections, developing strategies and monitoring understanding.
  • Engagement principles. These soft skills include coping, focus, resilience, effort, persistence, self-assessment and reflection.

Amina Oyegoke's curator insight, March 9, 2016 2:54 AM
As soon as I read the title of this article I immediately though of when I had to read Chapter 1 of my Computer Literacy textbook. Being a part of the "tech savvy" generation I thought I knew mostly everything about digital and computer literacy, and I thought that class was going to be a piece of cake. Turns out, there's way more to computers and anything else digital that I had no clue about. So much stuff that the main part of the class is reading, reading, reading. You would think a computer class would be more hands on, but since technology is evolving so fast, the professor can only go over so much in the time that he has. In this article it starts off right away informing its readers the difference between digital skills and digital literacy. The author, Sally Pewhairangi, also gave examples about the difference between the skills and literacy of research. From those findings, I found the author to be credible because she is an Auckland-based librarian who specializes in Library Intelligence.
