Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset

On my last prac I was able to attend a PD (Professional Development) at the staff meeting given by the library teacher. The PD itself was about teaching mathematics, but I was able to chat with him after school one day, and he was telling about Carol Dweck and the Growth Mindset. With this mindest, he told me his son was able to study engineering at university despite not previously believing he could do it.

This video is from TEDTalks and is Carol Dweck discussing “the power of believing you can improve”.
