Developing A Growth Mindset and Game-Based Learning
In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work – brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. This workshop will show the difference between growth mindset & fixed mindset and the importance of developing a growth mindset for teacher and learner alike. You will be introduced to Game-Based Learning (Kahoot, Quizizz), a type of gameplay that has defined learning outcomes. Generally, Game-Based Learning is designed to balance subject matter with gameplay and the ability of the player to retain and apply this subject matter to the real world. Google Sheets will be introduced during the presentation in addition to Kahoot and Quizizz.
