Incorporating Growth Mindset Strategies to Help Children Thrive 

 

Incorporating Growth Mindset Strategies to Help Children Thrive, by FCPS & Fairfax County Government

Mindsets are groups of beliefs that guide how we interpret the world around us. They shape our behaviors and decisions, and they play a major role in how we set and obtain goals.

Research pioneered by Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck suggests that people function on a continuum between having a “growth” mindset and a “fixed” mindset.

While all of us have bits of both, finding ways to incorporate more of a growth mindset into our lives can help us to thrive and achieve our goals.

Incorpore estrategias para tener una mentalidad de crecimiento y para ayudar a los estudiantes a prosperar, de FCPS & Fairfax County Government

Las mentalidades de crecimiento son grupos de creencias que guían la manera que interpretamos el mundo que nos rodea. Dan forma a nuestros comportamientos y decisiones, y juegan un papel importante en cómo establecemos y obtenemos metas.

La investigación iniciada por la psicóloga de Stanford Carol Dweck sugiere que las personas funcionan en un continuo entre tener una mentalidad de "crecimiento" y una mentalidad "fija". Al parecer todos tenemos un poco de ambas mentalidades, pero al encontrar formas de incorporar una mentalidad de crecimiento en nuestras vidas puede ayudarnos a prosperar y alcanzar nuestras metas.
