The National Network of State Teachers of the Year has released a report on teaching emotional intelligence.

Overall, they find research in this field persuasive. That is, these award-winning teachers think it likely that social/emotional intelligence can be taught, and does benefit students in a number of ways.

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
It's important to recognize that a growth mindset is an overall paradigm for personal development rather than a pedagogical tool for measuring academic accomplishment.

 

5 Growth Mindset Practices

In their groundbreaking book, Professional Learning Communities at Work, Richard DuFour and Robert Eaker say it clearly when pointing out the issue that comes about when change initiatives are considered "a task to complete rather than an ongoing process." If we really want to improve our schools, our work, and the education of our students, we can do so by adopting a new mindset -- for everyone -- that would include:

Being humble enough to accept that there are things about ourselves and our practices that can improveBecoming part of professional teams that value constructive critique instead of criticismTreating setbacks as formative struggles within the learning process instead of summative failuresRealizing the restrictive role that timelines can play in reaching high standards, and using foundational philosophies such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to map systems so that everyone's growth is supportedCreate flexible grouping at all times so that nobody's trapped in any one course level or particular type of work.

Growth mindset applies not just to students, but to teachers and administrators as well.  We must support all individuals as they develop and grow.
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 2, 2017 2:45 PM
Growth mindset is about an approach to life not another tool for teaching. Teachers can shift away from this tool-approach by looking at growth mindset as a way to develop as a person not get better grades. 
Tina Jameson's curator insight, August 3, 2017 6:47 PM
An interesting read - worth reflecting on what we mean by a 'growth mindset'.

28 Critical Thinking Question Stems For Any Content Area - | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it

The staff at TeachThought writes: "Critical thinking isn’t a skill, nor is it content knowledge or even evidence of understanding. While it involves and requires these ideas, critical thinking is also very much a state of mind — a willingness and tendency to sit with an idea and ‘struggle wonderfully’ with it." Photo by Tachina Lee on Unsplash

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, July 29, 2017 12:31 PM

Ah, I love the phrase "Struggle wonderfully!" My biggest worry about students is how quickly so many of them give up by choosing the easiest response, or the first result on a Google search. If we as educators don't provide challenges that make them think harder, or struggle wonderfully, we do they a disservice. Critical thinking to me is the true core of Common Core!

An interesting concept is that good teachers teach the wrong things very well.

The teachers I am interviewing tell me that teaching and learning are only separated by a thin membrane which is very permeable. What does that mean in schools, for teaching, and for learning?

Teaching is changing and it is changing fast! The challenges that a teacher faces today is a smarter and better-informed learner thanks to the internet. Moreover, the role of the teacher has also changed from that of someone who delivers content to one who balances between mentorship, instruction, examinership, counselling, catalyst, analyst, coordinator, planner, and so on!

The skills your kids should cultivate to be competitive in the age of automation - Quartz | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
We’re all getting used to the thought that in a not-so-distant future, competition for jobs won’t just be other humans, it will also be an intelligent robot, self-driving car, or other artificial agent. But in our gut, we know this can’t be the full truth, that there’s a more nuanced story. We at least believe that elite human skills will remain valuable even as automation eats the world. The hard part is figuring out which ones will be the most valuable and where they will be the most prized.

7 Science-Backed Ways You Can Reduce Stress Today | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
We all experience stress in our lives. Some of us experience stress once in awhile, while others face it on a daily basis.

Whether you’re one of the few people who perform better under stress or not, the side effects of stress are clear. Stress has been shown to increase the risk of disease or illness, lead to premature aging, and weaken your immune system.

Here’s a helpful diagram of how chronic stress works and how it can act as a negative feedback loop in our brain.
