Based on the ground-breaking research of Drs. Carol Dweck and Lisa Blackwell, Brainology® is a blended learning curriculum designed to teach students the understanding that their intelligence and abilities are not fixed and can be developed through effort.

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.

Brainology is a fun, interactive program that shows students how their brains – like their muscles – become stronger with effort and practice. With the help of animated characters Chris, Dahlia, and Dr. Cerebrus, students learn about how the brain functions and learns, 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 experience through classroom lessons, housed in the Brainology Implementation Guides for educators.
