MindSetGO 2.0 generated a positive and lasting impact for participants in project activities, for beneficiaries, for partner organizations and other relevant stakeholders.

The main impact of our project is to enhance the growth mindset school culture. This was achieved through increasing the number of teachers and principals using growth mindset concepts in their practice. The prerequisite for a high impact of the project is high quality intellectual outputs. Therefore, Didaktikcentrum, the partner responsible for evaluation, thoroughly evaluated the quality of the intellectual outputs.

Internal target groups

  • Teachers: They actively use mindset concepts in their practice. Teachers are encouraged to develop their own growth mindset, leading to greater extent of growth mindset of teachers. The attitude of teachers, included in the project, towards mistakes, intelligence, feedback, challenges, and creating a learning environment was changed. One of the impacts is better teachers’ self-efficacy regarding their impact on students. Because of the availability of free hands-on creative and inspiring teaching activities for growth mindset, they are able to develop students’ growth mindset. Teachers get practical ideas on how to plan lessons cultivating a growth mindset. They are expected to use a growth mindset communication framework more often. With the help of project results they can improve formative assessment skills. Teachers raised their awareness of fixed and growth mindset, their own style (fixed or growth) and when the growth mindset can help. Better cooperation between teachers, students and parents was achieved. Teachers got stronger confidence in their teaching careers. They experience different teaching methods and exchange experience with their peers.
  • Students: Better students’ self-efficacy regarding their school work was achieved and increased learning motivation, since teachers actively worked on students’ growth mindsets. Growth mindset, which students are developing, reduces stress and aggression in students as well as increasing wellbeing and emotional functioning, improves self-esteem, learning orientation and reduces helplessness and is linked with grit and pro-social behaviour. Some of the students had the possibility to connect with students from other EU countries, which improved their language skills and raised European awareness. Students improved their relationship with their teachers.
  • Principals and other school staff: With the growth mindset concept the school culture was transformed into a more encouraging and supportive one. This enabled better relationships between school staff, students and parents. Better self-efficacy of students and teachers improved the reputation of the school, which is important to many principals. Greater extent of growth mindset of principals and other school staff was also achieved.
  • Parents: Firstly, parents’ awareness about growth mindset was raised. They learnt how to provide support to their children by cultivating a growth mindset also at home in their families, which is connected with improved parenting skills. Growth mindset communication framework was largely adopted by parents. The project enhanced parents’ active participation in developing a growth mindset culture. Better cooperation between teachers and parents was also reached.
