Science of Learning: Mindset

Carol Dweck is the principle figure behind mindset theory and in my opinion is one of the giants in the science of learning. To understand where Dweck is coming from, we need to go back decades. In the early 1980’s Dweck started looking into the perplexing question of why females consistently score lower than males (in the aggregate, not necessarily individually) in math. There is no genetic or biological reason for this. When it comes to the brain wiring, there is simply no differences to account for why males consistently outperform females in math. In looking at the problem, Dweck formulated the concept of mindset, which she then extended (through research) to a variety of observable phenomenon.

Visual Display Manufacturers like SWI Keep Stepping Up Our TV Viewing Experience, for Game of Thrones to Peaky Blinders, even in Our Spas

“It was a personal epiphany. A few years ago, I was staying in a Ritz Carlton hotel and accidentally found a red LED lighting spot on the mirror over the washbasin. I touched it, then a TV program magically showed up on the mirror. I discovered it was a waterproof mirror TV. After that, I consciously checked what televisions they used in hotel bathrooms I was visiting. I soon found that luxury, new or refreshed hotels were increasingly using mirror TV’s or waterproof TV’s in their bathrooms. Some installed the mirror TV’s over the washbasin, some installed the waterproof TV’s (non-mirror) near the bathtub. I realized that the waterproof TV would be a growing trend for the bathroom, including at home, in wet or humid environments — bathroom, kitchen, pool area and even a spa, And you could continue watching your daily news or blockbuster entertainment programs!” — Luke Liu, co-founder of visual display manufacturer, SWI/ShineWorld Innovations.

People and the 4th Industrial Revolution

There is no doubt that the prosperous workers of the future will have to demonstrate agility in learning. Learning will be a continuous process for anyone who wants to remain valuable as the world changes. So, what is the catch? We all move smoothly out of and into stages of learning and working as smoothly as we move out of shallow sleep to deep sleep. But there is a catch. In fact, there are two catches. People and corporate culture. Neither of these are going to change quickly or anytime soon, and so the transition for those moving from the learning->work culture of the past will be faced with obstacles that we will have to navigate now and in the foreseeable future.
