'Carol Dweck: How to Motivate Students — or Not'
24:07 Apr 26

'Carol Dweck, a distinguished professor and the scholar most associated with the now-widespread concept of “growth mindset,” talks about new studies on the impact the idea has had in education. How should a student learn from failure? If you tell students that the brain can be trained, will they feel encouraged to put in additional effort? And is feeling motivated even enough — what interventions are necessary when a student tries her best but isn’t comprehending the material? In answering these questions, Dweck will describe new lines of work on how a growth mindset is (and is not) communicated to students.'
