Great Growth Mindset Video

Great, short video on Growth Mindset that I emailed out to all of my students a few moments ago.  I believe many of them think I am crazy for discussing this topic with them this past week.  However, I firmly believe in this concept, whether its called the Growth Mindset, the Power of Positive Thinking, having an open mind, or whatever…



Please watch the following, short video (3:06) about the importance of The Growth Mindset I’ve discussed periodically in class this past week.



Notice the words used in the video such as struggle, mistakes, challenge, strategies, perseverance, success, learning, growth, etc.

  1. Dave your senior ( experience and age only) says:

    Another interesting book, Reality is Broken: Why games make us better… deals with this concept by explaining that it is the playing of the game, and our desire to improve at the game, not necessarilly winning the game that is the impetus. They have to believe that they are showing progress. Well presented video.
