We welcome Alan from Live N Learn to Charleston Academy this week. Live N Learn will be delivering workshops on Growth Mindset, based on the research of Carol Dweck, a world-renowned Educational Psychologist. Growth Mindset is the idea that we can grow our brain’s capacity to learn and to solve problems. Alan will be delivering workshops to all S4 students on Tuesday and Wednesday and also talking to teaching staff.
A recent article by Carol Dweck provided an evaluation of the work being undertaken in schools for a Growth Mindset. Her point is that effort and hard work are not enough unless this also involves learning.
