Carol Dweck and Mindset

In recent weeks I’ve been asked a few times for direction to more materials about the work of Carol Dweck at Stanford University on Fixed and Growth Mindsets.

To help on this, I’ve pulled together here a few of the best videos I could find on the internet where she talks about her research and the conclusions from it (and especially the implications for us as parents or educators when it comes to helping children develop the growth mindset).

I also strongly recommend Carol’s book, Mindset that gives deeper insights in to the fascinating topic of motivation and learning.
