Carol Dweck: The power of believing that you can improve | Talk Video | TED.com.

We often hear people refer to the power of Now, but have you ever heard about the power of YET? In this powerful TedTalk, Dr. Carol Dweck, one of the foremost researchers in educational psychology, discusses how to provide children with the opportunity to succeed through the power and process of YET.

We owe it to all of our children to give them the skills that will empower them to solve problems, any problems. Problem solving skills and perseverence will be the most highly sought after skills in the near distant future when these children inherit a world filled with challenges not of their making.

If you are a parent, teacher, or influencer, I urge you to watch this short clip so you can understand how simple it is to transform learning and students so all of them can succeed!

Malala Yousafzai, Kailash Satyarthi win Nobel – CNN.com.

I am so thrilled by the news that Malala has won the Nobel Prize!

Her speech reveals that she is truly an extraordinary young woman!

I agree with her wholeheartedly that empowering women and girls, and giving them the freedom to reach their full potential through education has the potential to change the world for the better.

I personally believe that education for all is the key to equality for all.

And, in turn, peace and prosperity will follow.
