The Impact of Content Enhancement Routines on Learning: Leveraging Mindset, Co-construction, and Technology in the Evolution of Instructional Practice - by Keith Lenz, Ph.D.

This paper was written to: (a) describe the nature of CER implementation in schools that were provided with good professional development that resulted from observations and conversations with teachers and students over the past ten years, (b) attempt to attribute some of the current characteristics of CER implementation to the failure of educators to develop a “growth mindset” that significantly inhibits their capacity to respond to a number of core shifts in education that are influencing the evolution of instructional practices that are at the very heart of significant school improvement, (c) describe the importance of adopting a growth mindset that make it possible for administrators, teachers, students, and parents to use new technologies that will ensure the provision of ongoing collaborative co-co-constructed learning experiences as a key step in the evolution of instructional practices, (d) suggest ways that GIST, GIST Mobile, and the technologies and resources associated with these products can play an important part in the evolution of critical instructional practices and CERs.
