Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D. in decades of research on achievement and success. Mindsets are beliefs—beliefs about yourself and your most basic qualities. Think about your intelligence, your talents, your personality. Are these qualities simply fixed traits or are they things you can cultivate throughout your life?

The growth mindset, the understanding of intelligence and abilities as qualities we can develop, has been shown over and over to have powerful ramifications on student motivation and learning, and school success. When teachers and students focus on improvement rather than on whether they're smart, kids learn a lot more.

Users of Mindset Works® products can have confidence that the concepts on which the products are based have been rigorously tested in scientific studies. Twenty years of research have consistently shown that students who have a growth mindset do better in school. Moreover, the research demonstrates that teaching students a growth mindset raises motivation and achievement.

I think I could use this with people in my department. A few of us teach about mindsets at the high school, but this could help us communicate with our colleagues about how and why we do that. The messages from the students are pretty compelling. Students love learning about Mindsets and have been really engaged with the Brainology program when I have been able to use it.
