Three reasons why Growth Mindset interventions are failing

We’ve got a lot of research now that shows that schools – well-intentioned schools – are trying to change students’ Mindsets, but they’re not having the impact on student learning outcomes that we’re after. There are three reasons for that – find out more in my video below.

I invite you to come along to my new workshop, Mindset Movers.  It’ll show you what you need to do in your school, in your classroom and in your daily practice, to nurture, nudge and nourish a more Growth-orientated Mindset in your students.
