Join Deborah Carter, NewTechKids’ Co-founder, and Kitty Leering, one of NewTechKids’ advisors, for a discussion of two important books: Carol Dweck’s “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”.
Deborah will discuss the power of one’s mindset, especially if it’s a growth mindset. She’ll discuss mindset in the context of NewTechKids technology education programs for primary school children and teacher training programs.
The event is free. We’d love to hear your ideas on the link between a growth mindset (basic abilities can be developed through hard work and dedication), definitions of success, and attitudes towards failure and suffering, especially as it relates to children and learning.
The discussion will take place at the American Book Center in Amsterdam on Wednesday, January 27th from 19:00 – 20:30.
