Research Institution

Although research shows that a "growth mindset" – the belief that intelligence can be developed through effort and learning how to learn – increases student motivation and academic achievement, few classroom or school-wide interventions are available in this area. This project team will develop the Growth Mindset Learning Platform (GMLP) to support students and educators in developing and sustaining a culture of growth and success in classrooms and schools. The platform will include: four 35-minute modules for students; six 20-minute modules for teachers; a toolkit with resources such as animations, videos, and activities; professional development webinars; and a social networking website so educators can share questions, experiences, ideas, tools, and strategies with colleagues and experts in the field. Themes will focus on teaching students about how the brain learns and changes with effort, and how to use effective study skills to increase learning
