What is the difference between virtual reality and augmented reality? What are the advantages of failure? How can the latin expression “forma mentis” improve your success?

Hey there, Innovation Nation!  I read a book recently by a Stanford University Professor, Carol Dweck.  The name of the book is Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.  Carol Dweck says,

“If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.”

This approach to learning grows a student’s confidence and ability to explore.  In our Inventor’s Bootcamp experiences, students are taught this type of exploratory and challenging mindset.  We fill a room with 3D printers, embedded processors, sensors, 3D design software, and computers for programming, and then give the students a big challenge.  Every year, we never cease to be amazed at the creative solutions and capability demonstrated, as Carol Dweck has correctly predicted.

Today our guest is the founder of a literally game-changing company.  Proxy42 was founded by Francesco Ferrazzino and a video for their amazing new game can be found at father.io.  After the interview, I strongly recommend you take the 2.5 minutes to watch it.  This approach will change how games are played.  If you’re listening to this from the United States, you may find Francesco’s accent a little thick, but I will make no apologies.  This interview is among the best I’ve ever had.  Listen to it, and the re-listen to it.  His ideas are powerful.

“We like to think of our champions and idols as superheroes who were born different from us. We don’t like to think of them as relatively ordinary people who made themselves extraordinary.”
– Carol S. Dweck, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

“So what should we say when children complete a task say, math problems quickly and perfectly? Should we deny them the praise they have earned? Yes. When this happens, I say, Whoops. I guess that was too easy. I apologize for wasting your time. Let’s do something you can really learn from!”
– Carol S. Dweck, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
