Carol Dweck on the power of "Yet"

It's just one little word, but says world-renowned Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, it has the power to inspire your child to do incredible things.

Carol Dweck has written about mindset, specifically the difference between growth mindset and fixed mindset (and you can search these terms on this Scoop.it). This short (less than 1 minute) video looks at a three letter word and how it helps us see that a student has a growth mindset. Listen and learn.

Dit ga ik zeker gebruiken. 'Nog' (niet) goed ergens in zijn. Yet maakt dit wel mooier, omdat je het na de uiting van een leerling kunt plaatsen...

How many of our learners come with the fixed view that they are "no good at maths", "don't get English" etc? Well, this is a good solid growth mindset come-back: " you don't get it yet......."

Carol Dwek's Mindset is based on a lot of research she has done over the years. It has applications throughout higher education. 

Parent Cortical Mass's curator insight, February 19, 2014 8:19 AM

nice set of links about Carol Dweck's Mindset Theory.  Every parent needs to know what Carol Dweck discovered in her research.  

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:09 AM

So one who wants to make a change must have a positive outlook on new situations or task that they are not used to?

 

This article is about how one can gain or become a part of the group that is a growth mind set. You gain success or become a better person by following these changes.

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

This fits really well with the SIM work that has been happening!  It is a nice visual representation of the Dwek work.

 

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:06 AM

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.
