Mistakes are brilliant!
Our next focus in developing a growth mind-set is on exploring just why making mistakes is such an important part of the learning process. Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the why the way we respond to mistakes is a powerful tool that changes our brain and helps us to become more successful.
Our first focus is Our Brains: Why mistakes matter.
Advances in technology have allowed us to look at the electrical activity that occurs when a growth mind-set brain recognises error – it lights up! This is evidence that new connections are being made -exactly what we need to start the learning process.
