Mindset Maker™ is an online course for teachers to learn instructional practices that foster student ownership over their own learning.  These programs are available to students, educators, administrators, parents and anyone interested in learning how to improve their intelligence and abilities at


    The Brainology® online program was developed by one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of motivation, Stanford University professor Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D. and her colleague Lisa Sorich Blackwell, Ph.D. Their mission has been to research what helps students to achieve highly and to apply those lessons learned to improving their motivation and achievement. They discovered that developing a growth mindset -- the core belief that abilities are malleable and not fixed -- is critical to adopting learning-oriented behavior. Brainology is based on this research which they have pursued for more than 20 years. For more information on the science, visit our Science page.

    Product: The Brainology® Program

    Brainology® Brainology is an award-winning, online program that teaches brain science and study skills to middle school and high school students. In the program, students develop a growth mindset, the core belief that abilities, rather than being fixed, are developed over time. Research shows that this powerful belief leads to an increased focus on learning, greater resilience, and superior achievement. The program has been used in schools and homes in most U.S. States and several countries with enthusiastic reviews by teachers, parents and students.
