Superhero Mindset Man Sparks Enthusiasm for Growth Mindset by Michael Wilson was originally published on Getting Smart. Assistant Principal Wilson, from West Woods Upper Elementary School in Farmington, CT, shares the story of Mindset Man, a character who inspires students to learn from mistakes and to keep working even when learning feels hard. Watch the video about growth mindset at Farmington Public Schools to hear students talk about what it means for their learning environment for students, teachers, and administrators to embrace growth mindset.
Near the end of last school year we wanted to send a gift to school and district administrators as a token of appreciation for their partnership and their work supporting students. I’m a designer at Panorama and was excited to work on this end-of-year surprise for clients. To up the ante from previous years, I suggested that we create a poster from our dataset that captures feedback from 500,000+ (now well over 1 million!) students about their teachers and school using the Panorama Student Survey.
