How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset | School Transformation | Scoop.it
Coaches operate with an underlying assumption that giving advice to others undermines the confidence and self-worth of others. Others don’t need to be fixed. In teaching we need to move to exactly this stance in order to foster creativity in our students–to allow our students the choice, control, novelty and challenge that builds their creativity. Without the assumption that our students are already competent, imaginative, and ready to burst forth with regular exhibitions of novel and valuable ideas and products, we are limiting their creative capacities before they’ve even had a chance to discover them.

6 TED Talks Educators And Students Should Watch Together | Edudemic | School Transformation | Scoop.it
Education is a pretty hot-button issue for so many people out there.

So whether special needs students, public funding, gender equality in education, or …

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014 | School Transformation | Scoop.it
There are patterns within the trend predictions for 2014 that are worthy of paying attention to. There is strong, if not overwhelming evidence that behaviour patterns of students, educators, employees and professionals are moving towards the use of social tools for learning, working and teaching. Collaborating seamlessly face-to-face and at a distance, bringing the human element to virtual interactions, and personalized learning will prevail in 2014; each facilitated by technology. But it’s not going to be about the technology, it will be about making connections by voice and/or visual, contributing to new knowledge, and learning with and from others—all mediated through social media. It will be the behaviours of students, lifelong learners and educators—their use of technology, specifically social media applications that will influence education in the upcoming year.

Using the Academic Curriculum to Help Students Define Problems

Using the Academic Curriculum to Help Students Define Problems | School Transformation | Scoop.it
How one teacher helps her students combine empathy and their interests to take action.

 

Visiting Inspired Teaching School for the “Changemaker Days” this past school year was one of my favorite opportunities to see students learning to act on knowledge and empathy to solve problems.   During the 2012-2013 school year, Inspired Teaching’s administration challenged the school community to convert their service days into Changemaker Days, which required teachers to transition from defining service projects to guiding students in creating their own.

 

First grade teacher Athena Kopsidas paid close attention to where students showed great curiosity in their academic curriculum so that she could help them to identify particular community problems they could address on Changemaker Days.

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students

8 Uplifting Quotes For Discouraged Students | School Transformation | Scoop.it

"There are many reasons a student can lose focus in school. It can be bad grades that will discourage them to be inactive and to rebel. It can be the environment that can be stifling and suffocating for the students. It can be the fact that many of them don’t find it easy to the meaning in their struggles in school."

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments.
