Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool

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.

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'.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 15, 2017 6:03 PM
This is a reminder to both students and teachers (we are all learners) that a can-do attitude can help us to overcome barriers and obstacles to growth. Often we see a single route to success. When that pathway is blocked, we may give up. But a positive attitude supports multiple pathways and once we persevere we find them. It is about growth, not about benchmarks - any growth, small or large is positive.

Humans Evolved to Process Stories Better Than Logic | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | Scoop.it
Any story we tell of our species, any science of human nature, that ignores how important stories are in shaping what and how we think and feel is false. We evolved to be ultra-social (and self-deficient), so we care deeply about character and plot.

Stories complement logic in teaching when used with care. Students remembered my stories more easily than the material in textbooks. For example, I described how farmers I know use journals to help with their selective breeding of livestocks.

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | Scoop.it
Use of social media platforms like twitter, facebook, and instagram can walk a fine line, teetering back and forth between connectivity and narcissism.

More immediately for educators, it illuminates our need to create empathetic learning experiences that connect learners for deeply human purposes. The greater the dysfunction, the greater the need to belong.

So then, let’s take a look at 10 ways we can help children–students, in this case–use social media critically. Critical thinking begins with the self and extends out. Rather than fight things like ‘screen time,’ maybe we can help them use that time in more constructive ways grounded in critical thinking.

You plan. You assess. You network. You collaborate.

You tweet, differentiate, administer literacy probes, scour 504s and IEPs, use technology, and inspire thinking.

And for all of this, you’re given bar graphs on tests to show if what you’re doing is actually making a difference. But there are other data points you should consider as well.
