Teaching neuroplasticity

I read a study showing that teaching the concept of neuroplasticity can have an overall positive effect on motivation, achievement, and brain activity, especially for at-risk students. (Summary of study)

Since then, I can’t get it out of my head, for two reasons:

1. Intuitively, I’ve been believing for a long time that understanding psychological mechanisms can accelerate one’s personal growth

2. It’s rare and beautiful to discover an educational approach that actually reduces scholar gaps between students.
