‘Babies don’t worry about making mistakes or humiliating themselves. They walk, they fall, they get up…
What could put an end to this exuberant learning? The fixed mindset. As soon as children become able to evaluate themselves, some of them become afraid of challenges. They become afraid of not being smart.
I have studied thousands of people from preschoolers on, and it’s breathtaking how many reject an opportunity to learn.’
Carol S. Dweck,
Inspiring (and potentially life-changing) training for everyone interested in giving EVERY child the opportunity to learn:
Why we need to develop and a ‘Growth Mindset’ in every area of learning: The greatest opportunity we’ve ever had to change the way not only our children feel about themselves as learners, but the way our teachers feel about teaching maths and ultimately the way that society talks about maths.
Learn about Prof. Carol Dweck’s and Jo Boaler’s (Author of ‘The Elephant in the Classroom’) groundbreaking research and its implications for us all when it comes to learning to be great at maths and overcoming widely held beliefs about ‘ability’
See how, by changing the way we feel about maths, we open up to new ways of thinking and develop the resilience, curiosity and willingness to be challenged necessary to all great learning.
Take away practical, instantly applicable practices back to the classroom which have the potential to change children immediately and put them on a new course of learning.

Thank you so much Karen. I enjoyed the training this morning tremendously and tried out the ideas straight after lunch with my class leading to 20 mins of enthusiastic discussion! Brilliant!
The children said they really enjoyed it and wanted to do more so I am definitely going to be changing my teaching!’
Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense! Thank you.
Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
