The Learning Curve
Mindsets, Motivation, and Meaningful Work

from NAGC

"Often it's not that kids don't want to do work, it's that kids don't want to do meaningless work. If we can inject some meaning into what they do, we can take care of some of their negative responses to stereotype threat or boredom, any of the affects that afflict both underperforming and gifted kids." -Joshua Aronson

NAGC, together with generous support from the Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Program in collaboration with the National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented and the American Psychological Association, aired two dynamic webinars on the topic of Malleable Minds last week. The publication, Malleable Minds: Translating Insights From Psychology and Neuroscience to Gifted Education, brought together psychologists and neuroscientists who have different research interests related to topics such as motivation, stereotype threat, creativity, early learning, and cognition with researchers in the field of gifted education to discuss the intersections of their work and the implications of that work for school practice. more
