Growth Mindsets in the Great Outdoors - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    chool camps are a wonderful opportunity to observe how our students handle the challenge of a different learning setting. Away from the norms and familiar settings of the classroom, we see students in a different light. For the students, camps are an exciting and for some frightening challenge.

Developing and Maintaining a Growth Mindset - The Learner's Way - 2 views

    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.

Growth Markets in Online Education - 3 views

  • Online program growth is particularly high in two-year institutions.
  • Markets for online learning have expanded rapidly; the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reports that between 2002 and 2006 the number of students taking at least one online course grew from 1.1 million to 12.2 million - a significant increase! According to the Ambient Institute, the trend will continue and reach 22 million by 2011. Enrollment in online courses is rising at a faster rate than total enrollments in Higher Education. As of late 2006, according to the Sloan Consortium, nearly 3.48 million students in the U.S. were taking at least one online class. Moreover, the number of students who take all degree courses online is significantly increasing, while the number of students taking all courses via campus-based means is decreasing.

  • Currently, the overwhelming majority of the approximately 5-million online students in the U.S. — over 82 percent are undergraduates.
  •   Current trends toward a growing preference for online education are also fueled by the millennial generation, who learn in very different ways than have learners from previous generations.
  • Major population groupings that continue to offer high levels of growth opportunity in online education include: (a) K-12 courses, (b) international populations in Europe, Australia, India, and China, (c) adult professional degree programs, (d) military populations, (e) adult degree completion programs, and (f) populations by religion (e.g., Christian).
  • In summary, growth in online education has primarily been fueled by demand from non-traditional, adult learners for flexibility and convenience.
  • Future growth will continue through new generations of digital native students, led by the Millennials, who create demand for online education designed and developed in concert with Web 2.0 applications and technologies.
  • Characteristics such as a high level of motivation, self-discipline, self-regulation, self-efficacy, ICT literacy, and academic preparedness are directly associated with students who succeed in online learning.
