What is Growth Mindset?

Growth mindset refers to a learning theory developed by Dr Carol Dweck. It revolves around the belief that you can improve intelligence, ability and performance. The opposite, a fixed mindset, refers to the belief that a person’s talents are set in stone . Years of research have shown that mindset is malleable. This means that by helping students to develop a growth mindset, we can help them to learn more effectively and efficiently.

Advantages of a Growth Mindset

There is a lot of peer-reviewed research on the pros of encouraging a growth mindset in students.
These include:

  • Knowing how to ask for feedback and attempt work that challenges them, giving up less easily.
  • Coping with change and developing strategies to enable them to deal with difficulties.
  • Increasing a sense of wellbeing and reducing anxiety and stress.
  • It Improves self-esteem, and a positive approach to learning.
  • Developing the ability to work collaboratively with others.
