Shary Lyssy Marshall's curator insight, April 5, 2013 12:26 AM

"Psychologist Carol Dweck of Stanford University delivers the 2013 Walter N. Ridley Lecture at the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education. She titles her talk, “Mindsets: Helping Students Fulfill Their Potential.” She compares students with a “fixed mindset” and those with a “growth mindset,” illustrating how each type of mindset affects learning." 

Parent Cortical Mass's curator insight, April 5, 2013 1:26 PM
