DC celebrates mistakes!

Posted: June 3, 2016

Part of developing and deepening a growth mindset is celebrating mistakes. This may come as a surprise given many of us live our lives trying to avoid mistakes. Students with a growth mindset recognise and value mistakes as important and necessary for progress and growth. Every mistake we make brings us one step closer to success, and the more we can value our mistakes and see them as important and worthwhile, the greater our learning will be. This is important both at school and at home
