Day 2 – Session 3 – I Want to Break Free: Motivation and Growth Mindset in the Classroom

15/05/2021 @ 11:15 – 12:00 UTC+2

Session overview:

By the time students become teenagers they have often lost the natural motivation to learn that they had at primary school. They have decided what they can and can’t do and what they are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ at, and they are ever more self-conscious about losing face by making mistakes. They have, in other words, developed a fixed mind-set, which will hold them back and considerably limit their potential.

In this session, we will look at some practical ideas and activities to help teenage students to break out of their fixed mind-sets and re-gain motivation and a sense of control over their own learning process.
