Why mindset is so crucial to the learning process
What we can do to re-educate ourselves, our students and their parents.
The final session of the day will identify some of the best classroom strategies for enhancing challenge and growth mindsets, including:

Strategies for creating cognitive conflict
Games that really enhance literacy and learning.
