Webinar: Introduction: How Do Fixed Mentalities Close the Window on Learning?
July 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This series, Creating Safety for Children to Ask Questions, Make Mistakes & Take Risks for Learning, involves Flexible Mindsets. The first webinar introduces the Flexible Mindsets model and the mechanism for transforming mindsets, “Productive Puzzling”. We briefly review the impact of stress on the brain and the impact of fixed mentalities. We end with simple steps to get started in creating safety for taking learning risks.
**Are you feeling forced to juggle and adjust priorities, think on your feet and dig deep within yourself?
**Do you worry that your students or children may not be reaching their learning goals?
Now, more than ever before, Flexible Mindsets are vital for responding to rapidly-changing priorities and day-to-day uncertainties with resilience and adaptability. Navigation of today’s abundant challenges and opportunities hinges upon the capacities of Critical Thinking, Complex Problem-Solving and Creativity: what we call the 3C’s.
Flexible Mindsets walks you through the framework and concrete steps needed to propel students towards the ever-evolving aspirations of self-directed learning.
In this series of webinars, we focus on the implication of fixed mentalities and how to create emotional safety to transform beliefs from fixed to flexible. Join us and seize this opportunity to lay the foundation for Flexible Mindsets: the journey of self-directed learning.
Our presenter is C. Julie Dunstan, M.A., Ph.D., Developmental Psychologist.
Julie has driven the development of innovative programs including the ICAN Programme for children with math-related difficulties and the I-PLAY Programme which promotes phonological skills in preschool. Most recently, she retired as The Reading Clinic’s Executive Director to spearhead reFLEXionsTM, an initiative designed to develop Flexible Mindsets: the journey of self-directed learning.
