What is Mindset

What is Mindset
Every so often a truly groundbreaking idea comes along. This is one. Mindset explains: Why brains and talent don’t bring success How they can stand in the way of it Why praising brains and talent doesn’t foster self-esteem and accomplishment, but jeopardizes them How teaching a simple idea about the brain raises grades and productivity What all great CEOs, parents, teachers, athletes know Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. 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. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. Related:  PsychologiePersonality DISC

Science Behind Growth Mindset Over 30 years ago, Carol Dweck and her colleagues became interested in students' attitudes about failure. They noticed that some students rebounded while other students seemed devastated by even the smallest setbacks. After studying the behavior of thousands of children, Dr. Dweck coined the terms fixed mindset and growth mindset to describe the underlying beliefs people have about learning and intelligence. When students believe they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger. Recent advances in neuroscience have shown us that the brain is far more malleable than we ever knew. At the same time that these neuroscientific discoveries were gaining traction, researchers began to understand the link between mindsets and achievement. What does growth mindset teaching look like in the real world?

Que pense vraiment Steven Pinker de Daniel Kahneman ? - Steven Pinker (à gauche) et Daniel Kahneman (à droite) en 2011. Steven Pinker et Daniel Kahneman sont deux stars de la psychologie à l’heure actuelle. Steven Pinker est professeur à l’université de Harvard. Il est surtout connu pour ses talents d’écrivain et de vulgarisateur (plus que pour ses recherches scientifiques). Il est l’auteur de plusieurs ouvrages qui sont devenus des références dans l’art de vulgariser la psychologie scientifique moderne auprès du grand public. Daniel Kahneman est professeur émérite de l’université de Princeton. Au moment de la sortie de Thinking, Fast and Slow en 2011, Pinker a écrit ceci à propos de Kahneman : “Daniel Kahneman is among the most influential psychologists in history and certainly the most important psychologist alive today. Et il l’a encore récemment encensé. Cette flagornerie est-elle sincère ou ne reflète-t-elle qu’une bienveillance artificielle dont les membres d’une élite scientifique sont officieusement tenus de faire preuve entre eux ?

Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset' Opinion By Carol Dweck For many years, I secretly worked on my research. I say “secretly” because, once upon a time, researchers simply published their research in professional journals—and there it stayed. However, my colleagues and I learned things we thought people needed to know. So a few years back, I published my book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success to share these discoveries with educators. —Jori Bolton for Education Week This is wonderful, and the good word continues to spread. A growth mindset isn’t just about effort. We also need to remember that effort is a means to an end to the goal of learning and improving. “The growth mindset was intended to help close achievement gaps, not hide them.” Recently, someone asked what keeps me up at night. I also fear that the mindset work is sometimes used to justify why some students aren’t learning: “Oh, he has a fixed mindset.” In many quarters, a growth mindset had become the right thing to have, the right way to think. : le guide du biais cognitif Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind - Mind - Personality struggle | Search Results 368_struggle 126_Struggle 066_Struggle = Success Growth Mindset Quote 45: Management : Cadors et dominés October 29, 2012 Lettres Philippe Gouillou 6 responses Tagged with: Confiance • IDP • Management • Statut Etre dominant c’est le top (pour négocier, gagner de l’argent, faire un beau mariage, etc.) mais être dans un monde de dominants c’est l’horreur. 1. “Quand les hommes de 120 kilos disent certaines choses, les hommes de 60 kilos les écoutent. S’il y a des dominants, c’est qu’il y a des dominés : le positionnement des uns n’est rendu possible que par le positionnement des autres. Une “Stratégie Evolutionnairement Stable” est une stratégie évolutionnaire (en quelque sorte un positionnement) qui en Théorie des Jeux ne peut pas être envahie par une autre stratégie : sa représentation reste constante1. Pour le jeu dominant-dominé c’est facile à comprendre : il est souvent prudent de se soumettre à plus dangereux que soi (voir la citation d’Audiard ci-dessus et cet article sur l’ENA). Les avantages Au niveau du groupe, le nombre de personnes non dominantes est un fort avantage. et : Notes Liens :

Big Five personality traits In psychology, the Big Five personality traits are five broad domains or dimensions of personality that are used to describe human personality. The theory based on the Big Five factors is called the five-factor model (FFM).[1] The five factors are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Acronyms commonly used to refer to the five traits collectively are OCEAN, NEOAC, or CANOE. Beneath each global factor, a cluster of correlated and more specific primary factors are found; for example, extraversion includes such related qualities as gregariousness, assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.[2]:24 The Big Five model is able to account for different traits in personality without overlapping. Empirical research has shown that the Big Five personality traits show consistency in interviews, self-descriptions and observations. §Five factors[edit] Openness to experience: (inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious).

Star Wars Posters #mtbos #msmathchat | TeacherPaulP Instead of writing a syllabus or creating assessments or working on lessons plans, I have procrastinated and scoured some images from the web to make these. I have uploaded .png’s of these into this folder for downloading. The 8 math practices and SBG files were made to blow up to 18×24 (although the 8 math icons will be a little pixelated.) The Force and Darkside posters are pixelated when blown up that large, but will still look good! Like this: Like Loading...
