#MindsetBC

Last summer I had the privilege to participate in the #levelupbc about gaming in education organized my Matthew Winner and Jennifer Lagarde.  It was such an outstanding professional development experience, I can't even tell you!

So, when I started ready Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck, I thought it would make a perfect Twitter Book Club.  I posted this tweet, people responded and here we go!

You can purchase Mindset here from  Amazon and here from Barnes and Noble

The premise of the book is that you have either a fixed or a growth mindset and that your mindset will determine your success.

I was first introduced to the book at the PBL Collaborative training I was privileged to attend in June.  I bought it that next week and am just getting into it.  So far, it's been very powerful for me. I can already see how I struggle against a fixed mindset in some areas of my life.

To allow everyone to get the book, we're not going to have our first Twitter chat until Tuesday, July 30 at 9 p.m. CST.  We'll discuss Chapters 1 & 2.  I'll post the questions on this blog before the chat.  Our hashtag is #MindsetBC

Join the learning!

  2. I am planning to participate, too. I have the book in my library and I'll go and get it today and begin reading it. I read a little of it when it came in and it is very interesting!
