Why Growth Mindsets Are Necessary to Save Math Class - The Atlantic

Posted: February 9, 2016, 7:42 pm


  • Looking at math as reasoning and not just answering questions builds a growth mindset - Lauren Rosen

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Students with a “growth” mindset are those who believe that their ability is not “fixed” and that failure is a natural part of learning. These are the students who perform at higher levels in math and in life. But students don’t get the opportunity to see math as a growth subject if they mainly work on short, closed questions accompanied by frequent tests that communicate to them that math is all about performance and there is no room for failure.

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation

Posted: February 8, 2016, 7:36 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation

1. Make the work Google-proof

Put another way, design it so that Google is crucial to creating a response rather than finding one.

If students can Google answers–stumble on what you want them to remember in a few clicks–there’s a problem with the instructional design. And asking them what they’ll do when they WiFi goes out probably isn’t compelling enough as an argument.

Instead, anchor learning experiences around new kinds of thinking that force the synthesis of disparate ideas, media, and communities. Scenario-based learning, challenge-based learning, project-based learning, learning simulations, and so on.

It’s all out there, ready to be integrated in your classroom.

Developing and Maintaining a Growth Mindset — The Learner's Way

Posted: February 7, 2016, 3:18 am


  • For educators, parents and learners Carol Dweck’s research on the benefits of a Growth Mindset is naturally appealing. Those who have a growth mindset achieve better results than those who don’t, are more resilient and accept challenge willingly. After two years of incorporating a growth mindset philosophy we are finding that the reality of shifting a student’s disposition away from a fixed mindset and then maintaining a growth mindset is significantly more complex than at first imagined. - Nigel Coutts

Three Reasons Students Should Own Your Classroom’s Twitter and Instagram Accounts | EdSurge News

Posted: February 5, 2016, 3:48 pm


  • Steve- do your students run your Twitter and Instagram accounts? How many students contribute regularly? any problems with parents? - Liz Dodds

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Three Reasons Students Should Own Your Classroom’s Twitter and Instagram Accounts

We must think more critically about how we communicate via social media.

1. Genuine Digital Citizenship Opportunities

2. Publishing for the World (and the Classroom Across the Hall) is Powerful

3. Establishing Your Classroom Brand

According to educators Joe Sanfelippo and Tony Sinanis, branding can be defined as “the marking practice of creating a name, symbol or design that identifies and differentiates a product from other products.” Within the past few years, this idea of branding our schools/classrooms has become extremely valuable, as it promotes transparency by painting an accurate, live picture of what is taking place. Yet, in reality, the majority of the time the educators are the ones telling these stories. While this certainly has its place, ultimately what matters most is how students feel about their experiences. Social media has allowed my students to share our classroom happenings through their eyes. It has allowed my students the opportunity to both establish and share the culture of our classroom and our school, and ultimately create our “brand”.
