The Growth Mindset and Technology
Teaching a growth mindset can make a huge difference in the lives of our students. It can motivate students to be truly productive regardless of their natural talent. If they understand that their basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work they can achieve success. Too often students give up believing they simply do not have the natural ability to do great things.
As educators, we can help our students develop a growth mindset that gives them the courage to try new things and see that many things are possible. Digital technology is just one of many tools that can help aid them in this endeavor.
When it comes to integrating technology, do you have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset? How are you helping students take advantage of technology to learn and believe in themselves?
