  • Effective praise and feedback
  • Working with parents

  • Embedding Mindset and Resilience into the curriculum.

You will leave with practical ideas and action plans that can be implemented immediately in your classroom and school.

Evidence underpinning this approach

There is a lot of research into the impact and effect of instilling a Growth Mindset in young learners. Most is rooted in Carol Dweck's 1960's work in "learned helplessness," and the attribution theory. 

In essence, how people attribute the cause of their success or failure influences how much effort they apply in the future. Dweck helped identify a key attributional variable that affects how students respond to the challenges and obstacles they face when learning in schools. In Chile, students who had a growth mindset were three times as likely to score in the top 20% of students nationally while students with a fixed mindset were four times more likely to score in the bottom 20% of students.

The EEF teaching and learning toolkit also highlights metacognition and self - regulation as a key way of improving student progress with an average 8 months progress. 


How users/participants can evaluate success

An evaluation form is completed after the workshop to assess the quality of the presentation, what they have learnt and what the teacher will do differently in the classroom. This will be followed up 1 month, then 3 months after the event to monitor long - term impact. 


Follow-up activities and support

An online network and support area will be created for all participants. This will be full of resources and a forum for share best practise! 


The workshop will be at Guy's Campus (right next to London Bridge) Kings College, London, on Friday 1st July 2016.

The day will start promptly at 9.30am and finish at 3.00pm so we can all go home inspired for the weekend!
