Specific ways in which the build theory can be advantageous include, an increase in innovative learning and greater cognitive flexibility (Garland, Frederickson, Kring, Johnson, Meyer, & Penn, 2010). Cognitive flexibility, in particular, is extremely important because it serves as a catalyst for improving skills such as accurate problem solving and improved creativity or brainstorming. Applying the broaden and build theory into my own experience completing the intervention was unequivocally that most valuable part. More specifically, the act of physically writing to someone and expressing my gratitude and thanks allowed me to connect with others and even embark upon new challenges, two quintessential aspects of the broaden theory. For example, during the third intervention I wrote an e-mail to a man by the name of Christian LeBlanc.

These higher mental functions result in the blossoming of independence in work and thought, using cooperative and collaborative discussion as a catalyst. The idea of collaborative learning aligns with Vygotsky’s zone of proximal development. The zone of proximal development is the sensitive area where a child can learn something, but only with the guidance and modeled behavior of a more knowledgeable other. The areas that need guidance in the zone of proximal development are often fashioned with collaborative learning that utilizes the interaction and passing on of one’s skills to another while they’re learning something new. Vygotsky stressed the value of language in the process of learning, including private
Promoting a Coaching friendly context environment where managers and employees can share information and learn from each other openly. People in a coaching-friendly context naturally and informally reflect on their actions, discuss their problems and goals, and ask for feedback and advice (Hunt and Weintraub 2015). However, in a coaching friendly context, according to Hunt and Weintraub (2015), mistakes are opportunities for learning. Therefore, this coaching technique is quite beneficial to both the manager and employees. Thus employees who are typically afraid of making mistakes, will be more productive in this environment.
Metacognition is the process of thinking about thinking or being aware and understanding of one’s own thought process. As students and members of society, this still is critical to creating a high functioning world. For the individual, this provides a way to view past experiences and optimize successful ways of the past. As one continues throughout their education path, this skill is critical to creating a high function learning environment. Simply by looking at what was successful in the past, it becomes easier to develop assessments that are flexible to all learning styles.
Elisa, I found your post to be well thought out and answered the question asked. Informed consent is a must have when working in the school system. Per Ansaldo (2011) one problem noted with response-to-intervention (RTI) models, is that finding the student who needs extra help is easy, but identifying the teacher who may need assistance is not as easy. Moreover, focusing on the teacher being able to teach all learners should be more important than detecting students (Ansaldo, 2011). An RTI tier level approach in schools would focus on evidence-based services available to students, monitoring of students for progress, based on progress a decision collaboration, if necessary more intensive use of interventions, and evaluations (Saeki, Jimerson, Earhart, Hart, Renshaw, Singh, & Stewart 2011).
It’s not bad to have a static life to preserve who we naturally are and question those who dare to change us, its about the self. Meanwhile, the growth mindset is the thirst for learning, finding meaning in our misgivings giving ourselves ease for what we experience, its change and innovation. 11. Logos- It appeals to the beliefs of how we view and factors to our personality. Fixed mindset is to believe our abilities and talents in a perfect way without showing any weakness.
