When I was given the learning manifesto assignment, it really gave me the chance to actually dig deep and think about what I truly believe about learning. As a life long learner, I believe that we all can learn, just in different ways. I was definitely influenced by the growth mindset and COVA model.
I feel that schools are overwhelmed with assessments and scores and are losing the real end goal, for students to learn and make meaningful, long-lasting connections. If students are able to make these connections, they are on the path to be life-long learners as well. I really enjoyed reflecting on my experience in the classroom as a teacher and a student.
