Day 26 Growth Mindset

Today I watched a short animation on growth mindset and I thought it would be important to share with you .  There are so many young women who have made up their mind that they are "not good at math"  or "science"  or "technology".   That type of thinking is known as a Fixed Mindset.  It is very important for all students to have a growth mindset (male and female).  Actually its important for us 'all" not just students to have a growth mindset.

But young women get so many messages early in life that can easily create a fixed mindset, that I thought I'd add the concept of the Growth Mindset to our language as we discuss some of the give our girls confidence that they can 'grow' a skill with the right mindset.
