Professor Carol Dweck
What does this mean?
We want to raise our children to have growth mindsets
We can't do this if we don't have a growth mindset ourselves
Why does this matter?
What do parents want?
happy, healthy, well-adjusted
find success in whatever they do
Don't most people have a growth mindset?
40 % of us have fixed mindset
40 % of us have growth mindset
20% of us are undecided or mixed
Unlocking your child's potential
What do schools want?
know about their learning & plan next steps
active in their learning & have expectations
What kind of mindset do you have?
Your intelligence is something very basic about you that you can't change very much.
You can learn new things, but you can't really change how intelligent you are.
No matter how much intelligence you have, you can always change it quite a bit.
You can always substantially change how intelligent you are.
What does it look like?
Jamie sets to with gusto. He's good at this sort of task and values his reputation as someone who gets things right, fast. He finds the task unusually tough and quickly becomes dispirited, worrying that he's coming across as 'stupid'. He tells his classmates the task is 'boring' and he disengages from it.
How does it influence us?
how we feel about learning
how we feel about mistakes and challenge
the experiences we seek
how we feel about effort
Ben sets to with gusto. He finds the task tough and he is challenged. His initial attempts lead nowhere and he laughs when he realises he's going down a blind alley. He tries a new strategy and engages classmates in task-focused discussion. He shows curiosity and persistence and steadily makes progress.
Ben's growth mindset trumps Jamie's
How do we do this?
the good news is that mindsets are changeable and we can all have a role in that...
Learner expectations of themselves has the biggest influence on what they achieve.
