I’ve been collecting more and more resources on developing a “Growth Mindset.” Today I wanted to share with you some videos that could be used to teach students about the value of embracing challenges and finding a way to learn from mistakes.
A little bit more advanced (vocabulary-wise) than the book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain, this video from SciShow, “Your Brain is Plastic,” shows the importance of continuing to learn and making connections in your brain.
“Growth vs. Fixed Mindset” has great graphics that highlight the main differences between these two mindsets.
This 10 minute video of Eduardo Briceno at TEDx Manhattan Beach would be good to show older students, parents, and teachers.
UPDATE 1/27/15 – Here is another great Growth Mindset Video that you might want to show elementary students!
UPDATE 8/16/16 – My elementary students adore this set of short animated videos about growth mindset from Class Dojo!
