Over the past few weeks, Twitter has been buzzing with ideas around the impact of “mindset” on student learning. As #fallSIM* makes its way across Ontario, we see an amazing array of resources being posted on Twitter.
This page contains an array of resources around teaching the growth mindset, including videos from Ontario educators outlining how they are doing this in their schools.
Konrad Glogowski shared this extensive compilation of resources for teachers.
David Sornberger from #TLDSBLearns shared this video on Twitter: http://video.wsd.k12.ca.us/videos/345/professor-carol-dweck-‘teaching-a-growth-mindset’-at-young-minds-2
We have so much to think about when it comes to the importance of a growth mindset. How do we ensure our hiring practices are putting teachers with a growth mindset in front of students? If we know that challenging tasks impact the growth of brain cells, what are the rights of gifted children to appropriate levels of instruction and challenge?
Let’s continue the conversation.
