BLP is based on the idea that we are all capable of becoming better learners.
BLP applies this idea directly to the work of teachers in the classrooms, to provide a practical framework for fostering lifelong learning in all young people.
If we believe our performance at school and in life can be changed by our attitude, and particularly by how we cope with setbacks, we have a "growth mindset".
"Growth mindset" is the name given by psychologist Carol Dweck to the idea that intelligence can develop, and that effort leads to success. Her influential research, divides people according to what Dweck calls implicit theories of intelligence. If we think talent or braininess is innate and something we cannot change, we have a "fixed mindset".
