As you probably know, Growth mindset is the way in which people can think about intelligence in which it is something that can be grown, rather than a fixed mindset. Research shows that people with a growth mindset have a higher desire for learning, are more resilient, more intrinsically motivated and achieve higher. Examples of this are seen when students:

  • embrace challenges
  • perform better over time
  • participate more
  • ask more questions
  • seek out challenges
  • study more
  • put in extra effort required to succeed
  • value learning the right way over the easy way
  • spend more time on difficult activities
  • try new strategies
  • seek help from other students or the teacher
