Transcript of Growth Mindset

1. Grit
"It doesn't matter that we're only year 4's and playing against year 6's; all that means is they have had more practice!" - Matthew Lindsay, Year 5.
2. Feedback
3. Neuroplasticity
Students benefit from learning explicitly about how the brain functions, learns, and remembers, and how it changes in a physical way when we exercise it - challenging ourselves allows it to grow stronger!
What is Growth Mindset?
1. Progress & Attainment
Growth Mindset
I can’t…
I’m rubbish at...
I’ll never do it…
It’s impossible…
There’s no point trying…
Other people find it easy…
If I can’t do it easily, I’m not clever enough…
I’d rather not try in case I mess up…
I can…
I’m good at...
I’m sure I can do it…
It’s possible…
Trying will help me succeed…
Effort leads to success…
If I can’t do it easily, I have the tools to help me…
If I mess up, I will learn from it and do better next time…

2. Well-rounded human beings
"Everyone has inside of them a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!" - Anne Frank
"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence." - Confucius.
No matter what, your intelligence stays the same!

Alfred Binet (1857-1911) - French psychologist
Invented the first practical intelligence test (IQ test), the Binet-Simon scale.
Main goal: identify students who needed special help in coping with the school curriculum.

Yesterday's theory:
We are born with intelligence
Today’s Theory:
Mindset Matters
The distinguishing feature of geniuses is their passion and dedication to their craft, and particularly, the way in which they identify, confront, and take pains to remedy their weaknesses (Good, Rattan, & Dweck, 2008).

In other words...
It’s not what you are born with that matters; it’s your mindset that matters.
