Limitless Mind: Learn, Lead  and Live

without Barriers

                             with Jo Boaler

 

Recent years have seen an explosion of scientific evidence, from neuroscience, psychology and education showing that there is a different way to teach and learn, available to us all. When people take a limitless approach to learning – in content areas and in life – different pathways open up to them, leading to higher, more equitable and more enjoyable achievement. Mindset messages are important but they do not take root unless they are
accompanied by a multiplicity approach to content and life.


“Boaler is one of those rare and remarkable educators who not only know the secret of great teaching but also know how to give that gift to others.”
- Carol Dweck, author of Mindset


In this workshop, Dr. Boaler will expand on the best practices presented in Mathematical Mindsets by revealing six keys to unlock learning potential across all content areas and in life. She will share the explosion of scientific evidence from neuroscience, psychology and education that supports a different way to teach and learn—one that creates equitable and engaging learning.
