  13. 13. Linchpins are able toembrace the lack ofstructure, and find a newpath, one that works.We spend our time andenergy trying to perfect ourcraft, but we don’t focus onthe skills and interactionsthat will allow us to standout and becomeindispensable.Emotional labor is the workmost of us are suited to do.It may be exhausting, but it’svaluable. click to play-Linchpin

  19. 19. Dweck speaking on growth vs fixed mindset.
  20. 20. mindset
  21. 21. Every word and action can send a message. It tells children, or students, orathletes – how to think about themselves.It can be a fixed-mindset message that says:You have permanent traits and I’m judging them.Or it can be a growth-mindset message that says:You are a developing person and I am interested in your development. -Carol Dweck, Mindset mindset
  22. 22. Teach (model how) to: love challenges be intrigued by mistakes enjoy effort and keep on learning. -Carol Dweck, Mindset mindset
  23. 23. Speed and perfection are the enemy of difficult learning:If you think I’m smart when I’m fast and perfect, I’d better not take on anythingchallenging.So what should we say when things are completed quickly and perfectly?Whoops, I guess that was too easy. I apologize for wasting your time. Let’s dosomething you can really learn from.Reassuring someone about their intelligence or talent before a performanceoften backfires. They’ll be more afraid to show a deficiency. -Carol Dweck, Mindset mindset
  24. 24. The great teachers believe in the growth of the intellect and talent, and theyare fascinated with the process of learning.ie:In contrast, Yura Lee’s mother always sat serenely during Yura’s lesson, withoutthe tension and frantic note taking of some of the other parents. She smiled, sheswayed to the music, she enjoyed herself. As a result, Yura did not develop theanxieties and insecurities that children with overinvested, judgmental parents do.Says Yura, “I’m always happy when I play.” -Carol Dweck, Mindset mindset
  25. 25. I don’t knoweverything.I can learnall the time.Most oftenpeople believethat the “gift“is the ability itself.Yet what feeds it is thatconstantcuriosityandchallenge seeking. click to play-Carol Dweck, Mindset mindset
  26. 26. Successful people are successfulfor one reason…they think about failuredifferently.You become a winner becauseyou’re good at losing.The hard part about losing is thatyou might permit it to givestrength to the resistance,that you might believe that youdon’t deserve to win,that you might in some darkcorner of your soul, give up. click to playDon’t.-Linchpin
  27. 27. What, I messed up? It didn’t work? They didn’t like it? …what can I learn from that?usefully ignorant Carol Dweck - growth Mindset
  28. 28. Erica McWilliams: be usefully igornant Sugata Mitra’s success – provide resources and get out of the way for 3 months we don’t need more resources - just need to be more resourceful Alan Webber (fast company) resources like… Sugata Mitra’s http://kerismith.com/usefully ignorant the Granny Cloud – unlikely places Richard Saul Wurman embrace your stupidity ---read/seen that article? – uh huh.. we do that… how many kids do that…. prestige in knowing things... ironically blocks learning about things that matter

  61. 61. It’s the stuff you leave out that matters. So constantly look for things to remove, simplify and streamline. Be a curator. 80 When things aren’t working, the natural inclination is to throw more at the problem. More people, time and money. All that ends up doing is making the problem bigger. Instead..

Create an environment that maximizes the likelihood that each child willdiscover their own passion and resourcesand feel ownership of their own education.You are not a delivery system for "skills" although skill growth will happen.Youre trying to be a good launch pad for healthy citizens,not a manufacturing center for citizens.It’s not skills but self possession that are keywith self-possession,all other things become possible -James Bach

  71. 71. John Hagel III, John Seely Brown, Lang Davison Pull platforms emphasize outputs more than specific inputs. Rather than prescribing what an individual needs, respect the diversity and distinctive goals of each individual and seeks to help individuals access and attract the most useful and relevant resources. This approach provides every individual with the degree of freedom they need to engage in the problem solving, tinkering, and experimentation that drives innovation in all dimensions of activity. p. 208: I breathe differently16.

  73. 73. tacit knowledgeHelp learners create ways to expose their Perhaps a dimensionality in our conversations weve not yet experienced. one where we not only come together per passion, but also in grace and deep respect. one where more can be said, because in our new found security of intimate community, we spend less time with defense.

  82. 82. A brilliant, original, and important book. Wounded by School makes an eloquent and moving case for the radical re-invention of our schools. -- Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap and Co-Director of the Change Leadership Group (CLG) Kirsten Olsons book is refreshingly unlike the general run of sludge I associate with writing about pedagogy: It seems to be entirely free of the familiar platitudes which replace thought when we read about school matters, is scrubbed clean of pretentious jargon, and offers up the twists and turns of Olsons analysis and citations with beautiful clarity. I cant imagine anyone not being better for reading this book Twice! --John Taylor Gatto, Author, Dumbing Us Down18.

As Mimi Ito describes theprotesters,Their participation in the protests wasgrounded less in the concrete conditions oftheir everyday lives, and more in theirsolidarity with a shared media fandom…Although so much of what kids aredoing online may look trivial andfrivolous, what they are doing isbuilding the capacity to connect, tocommunicate, and ultimately, tomobilize... What’s distinctive about this historicalmoment and today’s rising generation is notonly a distinct form of media expression, buthow this expression is tied to social action. 19.

It lasts over a month.Over half the protesters are teenage girls.Why?DBSK, a boy band.DBSK’s online site, with nearly a million users, provided these girls with an opportunity todiscuss whatever they wanted, including politics.Massed together, frightened and angry that Lee’s government had agreed to whatseemed a national humiliation and a threat to public health, the girls decided to dosomething about it. - Clay Shirky, Cognitive Surplus

  87. 87. Failure = free, high quality research.What the open source movementteaches us is that the communal canbe at least as durable as thecommercial. For any given piece ofsoftware, the question “Do thepeople who like it take care of eachother?” turns out to be a betterpredictor of success that “What’s thebusiness model?” As the rest of theworld gets access to the tools oncereserved for the techies, that patternis appearing everywhere, and it ischanging society as it does. 20.

  89. 89. p. 124:To participate wholeheartedly insomething means to be self-motivated and self-directed,intensely and genuinelyenthusiastic.If were forced to do something,or if we do it halfheartedly, werenot really participating.If we dont care how it all turnsout, were not really participating.If were passively waiting it out,were not really participating. Andthe less we fully participate in oureveryday lives, the feweropportunities we have to behappy.Its that plain and simple.

  93. 93. ownership of choices We owe the Amish hackers a large debt... through their lives we can see the techniums dilemma very clearly: To maximize our own contentment, we see the minimum amount of technology in our lives. yet to maximize the contentment of others, we must maximize the amount of technology in the world. We can only find out own minimal tools if others have created a sufficient maximum pool of options we can choose from. The dilemma remains in how we can personally minimize stuff close to us while trying to expand it globally.24.

  179. 179. This last page is per Godin’s post today: Who’s on your listWell my list is way too long to be sure. Besides all the great authors andspeakers I’ve already mentioned, and actually I do have a list divided up bycategories even, I would say, ..whoever I’m with, whoever I was just with, I just don’t know.There are so many incredible people I get the privilege of being around.Every day I’m meeting someone new or realizing something new about oldacquaintances. Every day I’m going.. dang.. how lucky to be me… and howwise are they..I’ve missed so much in my years of existence. I think I listen well, I thinkthat’s one of my best gifts. But I also know – I miss so much.So my list exists – yeah, but it’s undergirded with... what I just learned, who Ijust met.Eternally and spontaneously greatful to the endless who.
