Growth Mindset, hmm…
“the chance of people replicating this in schools is very small. Carol Dweck told me that they don’t have a single example of a school successfully changing pupils’ mindsets.”
I’ve not really paid much attention to Growth Mindset. I missed Carol Dweck the year she was at SLF but I remember a lot of excitement.
More from the post a quote from Carol Dweck:
“I was asked once, ‘What keeps you up at night?’ It’s the idea that my work — which was designed in opposition to the self-esteem movement — would be used in the way that the self-esteem movement is used.”
Interesting read and Carol Dweck will be a guest on the Tes Podagogy podcast on 18 October I think I’ll huffduff that for a listen.
