Did you know that we run online workshops for FREE on our Instagram and Facebook pages from time to time?
They range from helpful workshops to support new teachers, to providing ideas for reading groups, to how to plan and implement hands-on Maths lessons, to offering tips and tricks to save teachers precious time in their week.
But today we wanted to share with you one of our favourite workshop series:
We are huge advocates for teaching students as young as kindergarten about Growth Mindset.
Why? Because research has proven that applying a Growth Mindset leads to success.
When teaching our students about developing their growth mindset, the aim is to help them identify when they are using it in the learning process and to encourage these words, behaviours and thoughts further.
This workshop series has 5 lessons. We have embedded all the videos below, so all you need to do is click and watch! We hope you find them super helpful.
Teacher Tip 1: We are sure you don’t have time to sit and binge on all 5 videos now. Make sure you bookmark this page so it is easy to come back to (feel free to share with a friend too so they can get the benefit of this free workshop).
Teacher Tip 2: If you are short on time, you can speed up the videos by clicking the three dots in the bottom right corner of the video, selecting ‘playback speed’ and then choosing 1.25 (recommended) or 1.5.
