Video: The power of believing that you can improve (10 min.)

I found this TED video at a Mind/Shift article: Why Talking About the Brain Can Empower Learners.

by Carol Dweck

One of the themes of the talk is transforming the meaning of effort and difficulty: "In one study, we taught them that every time they push out of their comfort zone to learn something new and difficult, the neurons in their brain can form new, stronger connections, and over time they can get smarter."
