What is Mindset

What is Mindset
Every so often a truly groundbreaking idea comes along. This is one. Mindset explains: Why brains and talent don’t bring success How they can stand in the way of it Why praising brains and talent doesn’t foster self-esteem and accomplishment, but jeopardizes them How teaching a simple idea about the brain raises grades and productivity What all great CEOs, parents, teachers, athletes know Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. Related:  PsychologiePersonality DISC

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn Helping students learn how to learn: That’s what most educators strive for, and that’s the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. “We want students thinking about their thinking,” said Leslie Maniotes a teacher effectiveness coach in the Denver Public Schools and one of the authors of Guided Inquiry: Learning in the 21st Century. “When they are able to see where they came from and where they got to it is very powerful for them.” A good example is a long term research project. During the process, students will go through different stages of emotions.

Que pense vraiment Steven Pinker de Daniel Kahneman ? - Steven Pinker (à gauche) et Daniel Kahneman (à droite) en 2011. Steven Pinker et Daniel Kahneman sont deux stars de la psychologie à l’heure actuelle. Steven Pinker est professeur à l’université de Harvard. Il est surtout connu pour ses talents d’écrivain et de vulgarisateur (plus que pour ses recherches scientifiques). Il est l’auteur de plusieurs ouvrages qui sont devenus des références dans l’art de vulgariser la psychologie scientifique moderne auprès du grand public. Daniel Kahneman est professeur émérite de l’université de Princeton. Au moment de la sortie de Thinking, Fast and Slow en 2011, Pinker a écrit ceci à propos de Kahneman : “Daniel Kahneman is among the most influential psychologists in history and certainly the most important psychologist alive today. Et il l’a encore récemment encensé. Cette flagornerie est-elle sincère ou ne reflète-t-elle qu’une bienveillance artificielle dont les membres d’une élite scientifique sont officieusement tenus de faire preuve entre eux ?

I say “secretly” because, once upon a time, researchers simply published their research in professional journals—and there it stayed. However, my colleagues and I learned things we thought people needed to know. So a few years back, I published my book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success to share these discoveries with educators. —Jori Bolton for Education Week This is wonderful, and the good word continues to spread. A growth mindset isn’t just about effort. We also need to remember that effort is a means to an end to the goal of learning and improving. “The growth mindset was intended to help close achievement gaps, not hide them.” Recently, someone asked what keeps me up at night. I also fear that the mindset work is sometimes used to justify why some students aren’t learning: “Oh, he has a fixed mindset.” In many quarters, a growth mindset had become the right thing to have, the right way to think.

struggle | Search Results 368_struggle 126_Struggle 066_Struggle = Success The Biggest Lie Students Tell Me (and How to Turn It Around) It's easy to say that students lie to teachers all the time. Frankly, everyone, including teachers, has a lie in them, and these untruths keep the schooling process rolling along. When adults say, for instance, that they develop rules with the students, chances are that students often develop rules that teachers already thought of anyway. Or, when adults say that a student can't use the restroom during certain parts of the day "Just because," rather than "Because the hallways is crowded, and I don't want you distracted from the lesson in the classroom,” that's just one more micro-fib in a collage of fibs that we tell children. But my push today is to talk about the lies that students tell, specifically the ones that keep them from growing into the best students possible. "I Can't Do This!" This statement is perhaps the worst possible offender, and we have layers to this that we ought to unravel. The discussion around "I can't do this" can be broken down into three general levels: 1. 2. 3.

45: Management : Cadors et dominés October 29, 2012 Lettres Philippe Gouillou 6 responses Tagged with: Confiance • IDP • Management • Statut Etre dominant c’est le top (pour négocier, gagner de l’argent, faire un beau mariage, etc.) mais être dans un monde de dominants c’est l’horreur. 1. “Quand les hommes de 120 kilos disent certaines choses, les hommes de 60 kilos les écoutent. S’il y a des dominants, c’est qu’il y a des dominés : le positionnement des uns n’est rendu possible que par le positionnement des autres. Une “Stratégie Evolutionnairement Stable” est une stratégie évolutionnaire (en quelque sorte un positionnement) qui en Théorie des Jeux ne peut pas être envahie par une autre stratégie : sa représentation reste constante1. Pour le jeu dominant-dominé c’est facile à comprendre : il est souvent prudent de se soumettre à plus dangereux que soi (voir la citation d’Audiard ci-dessus et cet article sur l’ENA). Les avantages Au niveau du groupe, le nombre de personnes non dominantes est un fort avantage. et : Notes Liens :

I have uploaded .png’s of these into this folder for downloading. The 8 math practices and SBG files were made to blow up to 18×24 (although the 8 math icons will be a little pixelated.) The Force and Darkside posters are pixelated when blown up that large, but will still look good! Like this: Like Loading...
