Who knew that the Growth Mindset is just one component of the Academic Mindsets? (My answer would be "not me.") Having stumbled on this post from mimio I knew I had to share it. Learn about three other mindsets that our students need to be aware of:

* Self-Efficacy

* Sense of Belonging

* Relevance

Are these mindsets you use in our classroom? How might you incorporate them? What will your students think about them?

Bringing Up a Young Reader on E-Books

Bringing Up a Young Reader on E-Books | Education and techology | Scoop.it
It may take a generation to know for sure whether e-books are better for children than regular books.

 

The article mentions research being done at Center for Literacy at the University of Akron on finding the best way to integrate e-books into classroom. I'd like to find more info on this.

 

Personally, I'm concerned about the environmental impact of "retired" e-books once they're no longer usable. E-books are an electronic with parts that pollute the earth's soil. They also use batteries that need to be disposed of. Is there a parallel industry developing now that is preparing to met the demand for disposing old e-books?
