The Growth Mindset Toolkit
Get 50+ practical classroom strategies that will create real change in your students’ Mindsets
I am taking my flagship Growth Mindset workshop ONLINE.
This is not an online course, it’s an online workshop, so it will be LIVE and INTERACTIVE.
You will have opportunities for whole group discussion as well as small-group break out sessions that will allow you to discuss your work while engaging in activities with other participants – just like you would in a face-to-face workshop
Will I need to be online at a given time?
(YES, and NO) It will be a live event, but if you can’t make part of it, it will be recorded for you. Times shown below.
Do I need to be at school for this?
NO. In fact, I encourage you to be away from the distractions of school. You’ll be active and engaged, so we don’t want people popping into your office for a quick chat. You’ll just need a reliable internet connection.
Got anything to sweeten the deal a bit?
YES. I know for some teachers this will be a new experience. So I’m offering the following to encourage you to give it a try.
– full access to my Growth Mindset Teacher online course (valued at $300)
– Schools registering 3 or more teachers can access a 45-minute private coaching conversation with me to help with questions and implementation
– Access to a full recording of the workshop to revisit any time between now and the end of the year
– NESA accreditation for BOTH the online workshop and the Growth Mindset Teacher online course (10 hours in total!)
How will it work?
It’s easy. The workshop will be run through ZOOM. You’ll be sent a link to connect to the live meeting – just click and you’re in. All you’ll need is somewhere quiet, your computer, video and microphone (standard on most computers), and I’ll send you some tips about how to get the most out of the experience.
Some of the time you’ll be watching me, or my screen, as I share the ideas with the whole group. At other times you’ll be part of group like in the image above, discussing ideas and answering questions as we would in a face to face workshop. At other times you’ll be in small groups of 4 (ish) to work on activities.
What will you learn?
The term Growth Mindset has become a bit of a “buzzword”. It’s everywhere: on social media, on our classroom walls. It’s the latest classroom initiative.
Many teachers are asking, “Is it worth it?” “Does it make a difference?”
Yes, it does – but we need to move beyond simply believing in growth to learning how to achieve that growth.
I’ve found that teachers can create real positive change with Growth Mindsets. The key is to understand that a Growth Mindset is just an invitation to grow. We also must teach our students how to grow. To do that, we need to move away from social media catchphrases, nurturing students’ Mindsets and teach them the actions they need to take to achieve real growth.
How do we do that?
We become teachers with the skills to make a real difference to students’ Mindsets, growth and learning outcomes. We become Mindset Movers.
Becoming a Mindset Mover is like being a multiplier for Learner Agency.
It helps students become better learners, quicker.
In this workshop, I will show you how you can become a Mindset Mover in your classroom.
I have developed a toolkit of over 50 practical strategies that will help you not only move your students towards a Growth Mindset, but also show them how to turn that Mindset into real growth and improved outcomes. These are strategies you can integrate into your daily practice without adding to your workload.
You will get tangible takeaways to support you in this work immediately, including:
- A deeper understanding of Mindsets, backed by research and supported by resources.
- A toolkit of 50+ practical strategies that will nurture and move students’ Mindsets.
- Visual models and resources for reference and ongoing learning.
- The Growth Mindset Style Guide, to support you in using Growth Mindset-oriented language in your reports, assessments and more.
I’ve already attended one of your workshops? Will this be different?
Yes – this is a NEW workshop! We begin with a short revisit of my previous course, and then we dive much deeper into the practical side of things. This workshop has a much stronger focus on practical pedagogy and school structures. Teachers who have attended a previous course and the Growth Mindset Toolkit have found it be incredibly valuable.
Join me to make a positive, lasting impact on student learning.
This workshop is being run in conjunction with TTA, and will contribute 5.5 hours of NESA Registered PD.
