Applied Brainology is a blended learning curriculum that teaches students how to apply a growth mindset to their school work and daily lives. The program includes videos, discussion boards, and online activities accessed through Moodle, as well as offline classroom activities.

$20/student For 5+ Students



Based on the ground-breaking research of Dr. Carol Dweck, Applied Brainology® is a blended learning curriculum designed to teach 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 take on challenges and work hard to learn more and get smarter, and they are more resilient when they encounter difficulty, 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 effort and practice. Following up on lessons learned in Brainology, students learn to apply their growth mindset practice to all areas of their lives. Students learn about how the brain becomes smarter, along with healthy habits, study techniques, self-regulation strategies, and other essential non-cognitive skills that help them to become effective learners. Then they deepen their knowledge and apply it to their own goal-setting experiences through the classroom curriculum.
