Growth mindset for students…
I recently saw Robert MacMillan (@robfmac) tweet about Growth Mindsets and a resource he had typed up and shared in different formats: As someone who is trying to develop their sketchnoting skills I thought I’d have a go at creating my own version of it using Paper by 53. When done, I wasn’t too overly happy with the title, so I used the Creative Cloud tie-in and sent the finished piece to Photoshop and added a new title written using the lovely Amatic SC font. One of the great features of Paper is the ‘Mix’ sharing ecosystem that it provides allowing for others to share their work so that it can be remixed. I cannot take credit for the lovely lightbulb that sits on the top left hand corner. That was created by Rachel Haynes whose website is here and Mix profile is here. Any how, I thought I’d share what I made and hope you find it useful. Over and out, for now! Update: Change your words change your mindset from Holy Cross Mercy School on Vimeo.

Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles. And new research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential. The new research involves larger, more rigorous field trials that provide some of the first evidence that the social psychology strategy can be effective when implemented in schools on a wide scale. Even a one-time, 30-minute online intervention can spur academic gains for many students, particularly those with poor grades. The premise is that these positive effects can stick over years, leading for example to higher graduation rates; but long-term data is still needed to confirm that. Earlier, well-designed tests of simple and relatively inexpensive growth-mindset interventions had surprisingly shown improvements in students’ grades over weeks or months.

How to use WordSwag for iOS iPad apps Published on May 15th, 2015 | by Mark Anderson Literacy is a big deal. One way that many teachers promote literacy in their classroom is through the use of technology to create good looking word resources to put on the wall. One such app that allows for this is ‘WordSwag’. Att få visa vad man kan: Kartläggning och bedömning av nyanländas språk- och kunskapsutveckling Denna föreläsning spelades in i del 1 och del 2 som finns inbäddade längst ner på sidan för den som vill ta del av föreläsningen i efterhand. Med utgångspunkt i våra egna mastersstudier om kartläggning i grundskolan och bedömning i gymnasieskolans språkintroduktion resonerar vi om kartläggning och bedömning i förhållande till nyanlända elever. Även erfarenheter från nationella projekt om kartläggning och bedömning utgör underlag för vår föreläsning.

Knowledge about how the brain works can make a big difference when confronting difficult learning situations. If you have a growth mindset and are aware of the ability to improve oneself, a challenge can be welcome (versus those with a fixed mindset who are averse to the failures a challenge may bring). Stanford University professor of psychology Carol Dweck, who has been leading the research in this field, discusses “The power of believing that you can improve” in this TED talk. In one example, she talks about students who made vast improvements on test scores once they learned about the growth mindset: Your Rubric Is a Hot Mess; Here’s How to Fix It. Share with Friends 29KShares See Mrs. Roy & Roger har en klass ihop? - Magnus Blixt Det var ett tag sedan jag hade en ”egen” klass. Hur kul det än är att se stjärnglansen tändas hos elever har jag ”alltid” samlat på mig något extrauppdrag som seminarieledare Yrkesetik, föreläsare, skolforskningsbevakning, , Ansvarsnämnd, fackliga uppdrag, IKT-pedagog mm – dock aldrig mer än jag kunnat vara yrkesverksam lärare minst 50% – f n 80%. I flera år delade jag klass med Kerstin, ytterst erfaren lågstadielärare. Hon var på plats måndag-tisdag-halva onsdagen, sedan hade vi en stund gemensamt innan jag tog över onsdag-torsdag-fredag. Det var mycket givande på många sätt! Våra kompetenser kompletterade varandra på ett bra sätt, eleverna lärde sig snabbt att det var lite olika regler beroende på vilken vuxen som var på plats (för några föräldrar tog det längre tid, någon kollega verkade ha svårt acceptera att det ens kunde vara så).

Hattie’s research: Is wrong Part 4 – a kind of Svengali NZ educator Kelvin Smythe’s latest posting in his series that deconstructs John Hattie’s ‘research.’

Metacognition: The Gift That Keeps Giving Editor's note: This post is co-authored by Marcus Conyers who, with Donna Wilson, is co-developer of the M.S. and Ed.S. Brain-Based Teaching degree programs at Nova Southeastern University. They have written several books, including Five Big Ideas for Effective Teaching: Connecting Mind, Brain, and Education Research to Classroom Practice. Students who succeed academically often rely on being able to think effectively and independently in order to take charge of their learning. These students have mastered fundamental but crucial skills such as keeping their workspace organized, completing tasks on schedule, making a plan for learning, monitoring their learning path, and recognizing when it might be useful to change course.

Skolan måste ge eleverna lika förutsättningar Artikelbilder Karin Berg, Skolsmedjan Viktoria Struxsjö, Skolsmedjan Evolution and Imagination: Teaching Growth vs Fixed Mindsets Showed these videos to my Year 11's today - Nearly every student had a set idea on what their own mindsets were. What was becoming increasingly clear was the amount of students who had a fixed mindset - compared with those who have a growth mindset - also had some negative thoughts about themselves and their own learning - or ability/inability to learn. jlsu Som en uppföljning till mitt förra blogginlägg om dynamiskt och statiskt tankesätt kommer här den s k isbergsillusionen. Isbergsillusionen visar exempel på vad som krävs för att bli framgångsrik, men som oftast inte syns på ytan. När man ser någon som är riktigt duktig (t ex en idrottsutövare, en musiker, en jonglerare etc) ser det väldigt enkelt ut. Därför är det lätt att tro att det handlar om ”medfödd talang”. Det man dock inte ser är all den träning, den uppoffring och det hårda arbete som ligger bakom.

”Sverige borde inte satsa på Pisa-toppen” Sverige är ofta riktigt bra i vinter-OS, men inte lika starka i sommar-OS. Det är inte så konstigt. Det handlar om våra prioriteringar. Det är en omöjlighet att vara bäst på allt. Precis så är det med skolan. The Educator with a Growth Mindset: A Staff Workshop I had the great privilege of facilitating a staff workshop on growth mindsets for the teachers and staff at Carlos Rosario International School and more recently at ISTE 2015. Participants were given access to the slide deck in order interact with the slides and resources during the workshop. What follows are the activities along with some of the resources used during the workshop. It began with the viewing of a few “inspirational” videos.

7 Mindsets That Will Radically Improve Your Life Right Now Possibly more than any other single factor, your mindset determines your success. What you think is what you become. Internal dialogue--the ongoing conversation we all have with our mindset--is the driving force behind every success story, and also behind every failure. The difference between who you are and who you want to be stems from your mindset.
