Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool

Growth Mindset: A Driving Philosophy, Not Just a Tool | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | 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.

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, 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, 6:47 PM
An interesting read - worth reflecting on what we mean by a 'growth mindset'.

"One of the most basic ways to boost student engagement with learning material is to demonstrate its relevance to the real world, and the easiest way to accomplish that is to put them face-to-face with an expert in a given field."

Seven Strategies to Teach Students Text Comprehension

Comprehension strategies are sets of steps that good readers use to make sense of text. Comprehension strategy instruction helps students become purposeful, active readers who are in control of their own reading comprehension. The seven strategies here appear to have a firm scientific basis for improving text comprehension.

These are great strategies that can be used in all content areas to help develop reading and comprehension skills
Valeria Garcia Lopez's curator insight, August 26, 2:46 PM
I found this article very useful for my professional development since we as foreign language teachers, must help our students to comprehend better the text they read. Sometimes, for foreign language learners, it is difficult to understand a text and they start to feel frustrated but if we teach them to apply these strategies to their reading comprehension, they will comprehend better the text. Strategies such as graphic organizers or summarizing are very useful to take into account the main ideas of the text and to have clear just the necessary information.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 15, 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.

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.

Books to Inspire Coding & Robotics - TinkeringChild

Books to Inspire Coding & Robotics - TinkeringChild | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | Scoop.it
I have been running a Coding and Robotics Club at school for a couple of years now. I started with coding and last year picked up a large number of NXT Mindstorm robots so it felt right to combine the two! Megan and I have spoken about this new 21st century language called coding in previous posts here and here. We spent the first semester including coding into our library progam which can be read here.

We use both fiction and non-fiction to inspire our girls in Library lessons. These ideas and skills can then be transferred into the Makerspace Zone and into Coding and Robotics Club. In this post I thought I’d share some of the books we use and have available for our girls to borrow. By sharing the books and stories during library lessons and having them on display promotes interest in programming and learning to code so creations can happen!

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.
