Psychologist and researchers Carol Dweck, David Yeager, & Mary Murphy explore what future education research looks like with a focus on the science of human motivation for the next decade.
In the past decade, scientists have shown definitively that people’s mindsets—their beliefs about themselves and their place in the world—can shape motivation and enhance learning. The next decade will be about using this knowledge to make lasting changes in teaching and learning contexts, and to reduce achievement disparities at scale. In the context of what we have achieved, this session unveiled grand challenges for the future and showed how scientists and practitioners will work together to solve them.
