Mindsets: Transforming Students' Motivation and Achievement
In this session, Carol Dweck will describe how students' growth and fixed mindsets shape their motivation and achievement. She will discuss 1) new large-scale studies showing the power of growth-mindset interventions to increase success in school, 2) new research on how parents' praise can create fixed mindsets and undermine motivation, and 3) new research on how fixed-mindset academic environments can decrease the representation of women and minorities.
Festival: 2013
