“The greatest gift any parent or teacher can give to their child or student is a Growth Mindset”. Roy White
This past week, several EIS teachers were in attendance to hear Professor Dweck (Stanford University) summarise the latest research connected with her world renowned work. This included research only recently published in Nature.
The research indicates that not only will a Growth Mindset ensure for academic success, but those individuals also show lower levels of anxiety, are more socially minded, and will make greater progress in mathematics. A Growth Mindset also correlates with higher perceptions of teamwork, innovation and creativity within Fortune 500 companies.
In an upcoming Parent University session, Roy will offer parents details of this imporatnt area not only for teaching and learning, but also for parenting.
