Mindset Works®: Student Motivation through a Growth Mindset, by Carol Dweck, Ph.D.

Mindset Works®: Student Motivation through a Growth Mindset, by Carol Dweck, Ph.D. | 21 century Learning Commons | Scoop.it
Brainology is an online interactive program in which middle school students learn about how the brain works, how to strengthen their own brains, and how to better approach their own learning. In the process they develop a growth mindset whereby they think of their intelligence as something they can develop through study and learning rather than as something fixed, as explained by our co-founder Dr. Carol Dweck.

Makerspaces: Beyond Tools and Products | UpNext: The IMLS Blog

Makerspaces: Beyond Tools and Products | UpNext: The IMLS Blog | 21 century Learning Commons | Scoop.it
As maker fever hits America’s makerspaces, libraries, museums, and schools, the focus is often on tools and products: what we bought, and what people made with it. These are important data points that validate purchases and provide tangible evidence that our efforts have borne fruit. But, there are more maker stories to be told: about access, diversity, and agency.
