Welcome to the Garden of Learning blog….

Week 1

“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”   Sydney J. Harris 

EDC 3100 is a course which encourages you to challenge yourself to learn new ICTs and to develop a Personal Learning Network.  This is the first time I have ever blogged so the first challenge has been to find out how the dashboard, pages, comments and posts work.  It has so far has been trial and error…  but Google has been a great help! 🙂  Edublogs also offers advice and tips for beginners – http://help.edublogs.org/2009/07/29/writing-your-first-post/

One of the first readings in ICT and Pedagogy EDC 3100 is Dweck’s growth mindsets –http://michaelgr.com/2007/04/15/fixed-mindset-vs-growth-mindset-which-one-are-you/

This article questions the type of mindset you hold and whether you are willing to adapt or change your mindset to tackle tasks which you might intially believe are impossible.

I know which mindset I hold ……  which one are you….?
