Do you have a topic that you would love to discuss with parents of gifted and professionals? Please leave a comment.
NAGC is excited to celebrate National Parenting Gifted Children’s Week by providing some of our most popular sessions and webinars FREE for you in our Live Learning Center. Each day we’ll spotlight a session that addresses critical issues parents need to know, and you can join at the Parenting for High Potential blog, our Parenting for High Potential Page on facebook , or @NAGCGifted on twitter to make comments, ask questions, and share your insights with other parents.
We’re kicking off the week by sharing one of our most memorable keynote speakers. At the 2010 NAGC Convention in Atlanta, GA, Carol Dweck spoke about Mindsets, Praise, and Gifted Education: How our Messages Can Help or Hinder the Development of Talent. She eloquently explained the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, ways mindset impacts attitude toward learning, motivation to make one’s best effort in the face of difficulties, and ways our language, particularly praise, shapes the mindset of children.
Visit the Live Learning Center now to hear Carol Dweck on Mindsets, Praise, and Gifted Education: How our Messages Can Help or Hinder the Development of Talent.
(Instructions: To access talks look for “Complementary Featured Sessions” in the middle of the homepage for the Live Learning Center. You will see many sessions available there. The first slide for Dweck’s Session reads, “Welcome Nancy Green NAGC Executive Director.” There will be approximately 10 minutes of convention introductions prior to Dweck beginning. Enjoy!)
