Carol Dweck and Mindset

leave a comment »

I mentioned Carol Dweck’s extremely interesting and useful book Mindset in the post on what children should learn by age 18. I just learned of a thorough description at and wanted to point that out.

Also Dweck has instituted an online program based on the book: And they are now beta-testing Brainology Español.

I’m devoting a post to it because I think it’s an important book for everyone, but especially for those shaping the minds of children.

And, regarding life skills, Lifehacker has come up with this list.

UPDATE: And in this connection check out the Science News article by Bruce Bower: Kids Flex Culture Muscles.
