Teaching with a Growth Mindset

Thursday, May 18, 2017
6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET (register)

On Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) will be hosting a Teacher Talk webinar to explore educator practices supporting the growth mindset.

This webinar examines how are teachers bringing the growth mindset into their teaching practices and throughout the learning process to promote achievement.

Colorado’s District 51 is in its first year of implementing a performance-based (or competency-based) learning system. They are intentionally building a thriving culture rooted in growth mindset. District 51 has identified five strategies to help students and adults learn to have a growth mindset: Brain, Mindsets, Self Talk, Feedback, and Goals. According to The Growth Mindset author Carol Dweck, “In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work — brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”

Join this webinar to learn what it means to have the growth mindset, and hear from District 51 teachers how they are developing their own growth mindsets and instilling a growth mindset in their students. Attendees will learn tips and examples of teaching with a growth mindset that they can bring into their own schools and classrooms.

iNACOL CEO Susan Patrick said, “By embracing growth mindset, teachers support students to build positive attitudes and beliefs about themselves as learners and increase their knowledge around perseverance engaging in productive behaviors all the while knowing that all students can learn.”

This webinar is free to attend — participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
