Gust MEES's curator insight, October 3, 2015 7:26 AM

Carol Dweck’s work in this regard speaks volumes about the power of belief. If students believe they can be successful, they will be. If teachers believe they have the power to influence student learning outcomes, then they can make a positive impact on their learning. It’s interesting how a rather simplistic concept has garnered so much attention in the world of education. Educators here and everywhere are humming this new buzzword triumphantly as the catch-all phrase of the 21st century. But is it really that new? 


The power of positivity has been around for years. Everyone knows that having a positive attitude is a prerequisite for overcoming obstacles. So why the big buzz? Dweck’s work is now backed by research in the field of education, that’s why. The research indicated that students with fixed mindsets did not perform as well as students with a growth mindset. So it begs the question, how do we, as educators, foster a growth mindset amongst our students?

Silvia Meza's curator insight, October 3, 2015 9:32 AM

En ocasiones como educadores olvidamos el peso de nuestras acciones,actitudes en nuestros alumnos nos envuelve la inercia de la máquina burocrática.Nos invade la sensación de impotencia de ser una voz que grita en el desierto,sin embargo podemos ser agentes de cambio.Primero creyendo en nosotros mismos, como profesionales de la educación que podemos influir en ellos. Luego transmitiendo esa mentalidad a nuestros educandos,creyendo en sus capacidades,su potencial. Deleuze en la teoría del etiquetado señalaba como un juicio negativo acerca del alumno,se convierte en algo que lo define como persona. Entonces cuando me comunico con mi clase siempre rescatar lo positivo,señalar que se puede mejorar,no esgrimir juicios perentorios.
