We can’t just tell our students that they “can have a Growth Mindset” and expect change – it isn’t a treatment. An understanding the Growth Mindset takes practice. Something we as learning facilitators practice with our learners.
In this way the ePortfolio is an environment that cultivates the growth mindset. We can tell our kids we believe in them all we want, but unless we create a space for them to express themselves and share their learning in an authentic way, it isn’t effective.
