How teachers interact with and react to students deeply affects their learning trajectory. 

Mistakes are the most important things for learning. When you make mistakes things happen in your brain that don't happen when you are afraid to make mistakes.

Teachers need to model that learning is a lifelong process.

I just posted a contribution - a TED lecture by Carol Dweck. I'm glad to see that there are at least a few of us out there that believe in the power of a Growth Mindset!
