Interesting comments by Carol Dweck on what happens when the concept of growth mindset is misunderstood...
Examples of a false growth mindset include praising effort over progress, affirming students' potential without enabling them, and blaming their mindset instead of refocusing it.

Giggle for the day - view this article using Google translate. Here's my very favorite line:

"Overripe Brünnhildes that beschmachten their retiree-Siegfried, on the ramp firmly chiselled Turandot, the tingle their deadly puzzles nearing walker-existence."

I just came across this simple explanation on an infographic:

"Communities of practice provide opportunities for metacognitive recalibration, improving self-efficacy and increasing the accuracy of self-assessment."

It reminded me of Calvin and Hobbes comments on inhibiting clarity. Wow. That was metacognition.
This of one of the ways that Calvin and Hobbes shows how brilliant it truly was.

"And for all the researchers at Western universities who use Sci-Hub instead, the anonymous publisher lays the blame on librarians for not making their online systems easier to use and educating their researchers. " Librarians? LIBRARIANS? Librarians have begged publishers/vendors for better metadata, accurate full-text linking, cooperation with database vendors, and indeed, better online systems for decades. I'd like to see certain publisher/vendors educate our researchers on why their expensive, premier databases are often less effective than Google Scholar.
An exclusive look at data from the controversial web site Sci-Hub reveals that the whole world, both poor and rich, is reading pirated research papers.

Kudos to Tim Broadwater and WVU Libraries for being honest about the results of design-by-committee.
A case study about the wrong turns taken during a redesign project and the impact of design-by-committee on team morale.

Not an easy answer!
Turns out, there is no simple answer to the question — the physicists we contacted provided a variety of explanations, ranging from static electricity to a physics principle called van der Waals forces.
