Two Mindsets

September 3, 2020

A Poetic Tale

Many of you have read Carol Dweck’s Mindset and have incorporated some of this line of thinking into your work as an educator and perhaps applied it personally. If you’re not familiar with the book Dr. Dweck provides insight on the power of mindset, how we think about talents and abilities and how mindset influences success in school and every part of life.

People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed.

In this video called A Tale of Two Mindsets, the young British poet and filmmaker Tom Roberts provides examples of what each mindset might sound like in dealing with today’s reality.

Roberts also created the poem The Great Realisation, a bedtime story video about the world in March and leading up to it. In 48 hours it went viral and had over 20 million views. Find it at THIS LINK. Roberts uses the name Tom Foolery in his posts.
