When the going gets tough, how do we create an environment which encourage and foster perseverance?

How do we encourage a solid work ethic and help students stay motivated?

Perseverance is a marathon, not a sprint.  The data shows that talent doesn't make you persevere.  When you have a Growth Mindset (research from Harvard University); the ability to learn is not fixed, it can change with your effort and when students understand that failure is not a permanent condition, they are able to persevere. 

This workshop is unlike any other, inspired by the online Seth Godin Leadership workshop (now available on Udacity), where thousands of people came together on a very interactive platform called SLACK, which inspired deep conversation and sharing of all the participants. We will be using this format and applying it to education.  

This workshop is where conversation, tools and technology collide.

You will walk away with concrete ideas and tools you can use in your classroom inspired and shared by educators and thought leaders in the industry.
