Unlocking potential: The role of learning dispositions in early education

We know by now that while what we learn is important, the how and why of learning is essential.


Why? If you develop thinking skills and learning behaviours then you will do well given the opportunity (and if not, you'll know how to make the opportunity for yourself!).

Learning dispositions, also known as habits of mind, are so important we have an entire series of books dedicated to teaching them. With clear, descriptive photographs and positive self-talk we can begin to instill the language of thinking skills into the neural networks of our learners.

I AM CONFIDENT


Confidence is a thinking skill that can be nurtured with a growth mindset.



Focus on process over outcome or product, see challenges as opportunities and allow for mistakes as part of the journey.


With this learning disposition we transform self-consciousness into reflectiveness and self-belief. Confidence shapes a child’s self-perception and identity, fostering a positive sense of self-worth. When children believe in their abilities, they are more likely to approach new challenges with enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. This positive self-regard acts as a foundation for emotional wellbeing, enabling children to navigate

social interactions, handle stress and cope with setbacks more effectively.



Confidence: feeling sure of yourself and your abilities.
