"How can we ensure our students remain learners?
It comes down to what [Carol Dweck] calls ‘mindsets’.
There are two: Fixed and Growth.
People with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is finite. We are born with a finite quantity of intelligence (or ability in any field – sport, music etc) and that’s it. That’s your quota for life. You either have it or you don’t.
People with a growth mindset believe that intelligence, and all abilities, can be developed over time.
Those with a fixed mindset usually become non-learners whereas those with a growth mindset become lifelong learners."
