Growth Mindset Resources
Carol Dweck and her colleagues at Stanford University developed the term growth mindset. Her research found children with a growth mindset pushed through challenges, used different learning strategies and learned from their mistakes. They believe their intelligence is not static but can develop and grow.
A growth mindset helps students achieve their educational goals. It also helps them work through difficult tasks. Whereas children with a fixed mindset believe intelligence is fixed from birth and nothing will change it.
