Professional Learning, Mindset and Metacognition

“Mindset: The new psychology of success” was published by Carol Dweck in 2006. She explored the conception that it is not just our abilities and talents that bring about success but how we approach our goals that helps us to learn how we can fulfill our potential.

The Educational Psychology Service in North Ayrshire carried out some exploratory research to establish if teaching ‘growth mindsets’ has an impact. Whole school staff in-service and workshops to P5/6 children have taken place. In addition, the Psychological ServiceĀ  support teachers in promoting the growth mindset and in measuring the outcomes.
