THE MINDSET REVOLUTION: TEACHING FOR A GROWTH MINDSET

We are in the midst of a revolution, in the science of the brain and learning. New knowledge from brain science is showing a clear path for learning, that is both exciting and inspiring for teachers. In the CUE 2017 National Conference Kickoff Keynote, Dr. Jo Boaler and the co-founder of youcubed, will share recent and important research on the brain and learning that has profound implications for students’ achievement. We will watch videos of students who have changed their pathways and consider many ways to bring the new science into teaching of all subjects.


Dr. Jo Boaler is a Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University, and the co-founder of youcubed. She is also an analyst for PISA testing in the OECD, and author of the first MOOC on mathematics teaching and learning. Former roles have included being the Marie Curie Professor of Mathematics Education in England, a mathematics teacher in London comprehensive schools, and a lecturer and researcher at King’s College, London. Her PhD won the national award for educational research in the UK and her book: Experiencing School Mathematics won the 'Outstanding Book of the Year' award for education in Britain.
