Infographic: Create Orbits

There is a lot of overlap between Jackie Gerstein's acrostic poster Create Orbits (a.k.a. An Educator’s Soul Survivor Kit) and the growth mindset; visit the blog post to see the full version: Creativity and Orbiting the Giant Hairball of School.

C-R-E-A-T-E   O-R-B-I-T-S

Courage to teach and learn via the paths less traveled
Responsible risk-taking and responsible creativity
Enlist colleague, learner and parent support
Avoid complacency - getting too comfrotable
Transparency - widely share what you know and do
Escape from self-imposed limitations
Original thinking does matter
Reflect deeply on what's working, what is not
Bridge what is to what could be
Innovate within boundaries of acceptability
Trust process of creativity: time it takes for change
Stop trying to be normal; stop stifling your growth
