This week we read about the growth mindset, tinkering and hard play. I never really understood what the growth mindset was until this last week. I realize that if we’re not keeping our students engaged, through play and tinkering, we may be setting them up for a fixed mindset. If we stick to our district’s curriculum, and not moving away from the text, students are going to be more on the fixed mindset. Having an open classroom and implementing OERs is a place to start.
