Based on the ground-breaking research of Drs. Carol Dweck and Lisa Blackwell, Applied Brainology® is a blended learning program designed to teach 8th-12th grade students that their intelligence and abilities are not fixed and can be developed through their own actions.

When students develop a growth mindset, they gain confidence in their ability to learn. They learn to take on challenges and work hard to get smarter, becoming more resilient when they encounter difficulty, and leading to higher achievement in school.

Applied Brainology is a fun, engaging program that shows students how their brains – like their muscles – become stronger with effective effort and deliberate practice. The concepts from Brainology® are taught in a new and accelerated way, then the curriculum dives deeper into application of specific strategies.

Students are taught the neuroscience behind how the brain becomes smarter, as well as brain-healthy habits, self-regulation strategies, and other essential SEL/non-cognitive skills. The program includes planning and goal-setting activities, reflection, self-monitoring, and assessment tools. Students can become more effective learners, applying their growth mindset understanding and newly developed strategies to all areas of their lives.
