ACTION POTENTIAL - The Secrets of Superlearners
Action Potential aims to provide direct answers regarding the neurocognitive and psychological characteristics that enrich a child’s learning capabilities. While growth mindset and grit have become popular constructs, executive functioning has yet to earn the same academic recognition. This is not only illogical by our current understanding of learning, but a striking oversight given the historical and evolutionary impact executive functioning has had on human survival. Ultimately, Action Potential examines the power of executive functioning, growth minded thinking and grit as core components to successful learning. The book not only discusses the importance of these competencies, but the timing of their development and their significance within an educational framework.
