Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff | Culture and Language Teaching | 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).

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Culture and Language Teaching | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

"The first rule is so important, it’s RULE 0.… The new thing is never as good as the old thing, at least right now. Soon, the new thing will be better than the old thing will be." Seth Godwin

 
Raquel Oliveira's curator insight, February 6, 2015 2:19 PM

gosto da premissa que tecnologia não endereça/resolve necessidades emocionais, básicas na pirâmide aqui ilustrada.


A hierarquia tecnológica de segurança, sociabilização, cognição, estética, etc é um excelente passo a passo para utilização da tecnologia como ferramenta de aprendizagem.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 2, 2015 7:19 PM

This is a project which is ongoing. Maslow, like others i.e. Ellul, had reservations about computers, but his work is important in their uses.
