Growth Mindset + Class Dojo!

Class Dojo has done it again!

Class Dojo has partnered with Stanford University’s Project for
Education Research That Scales (PERTS) to bring growth mindset to the classroom! As many educators know, growth mindset is the notion that intelligence and abilities can be developed over time. When students have a growth mindset, they see challenges as learning opportunities and not barriers. 

Class Dojo knows this too! Thus, they created the “Big Ideas: Growth Mindset” series follows Mojo, ClassDojo’s much-loved monster mascot, as he and his friend Katie explore the importance of a growth mindset and how to develop one. Each video is paired with lessons to help our students reinforce their own growth mindset. 

Class Dojo couldn't have made it any easier! Check out their page on Growth Mindset and subscribe to their videos, download lessons, find related resources, and more! You can even check out the first five videos with lessons are here!

Working at my site, we have been working on growth mindset for a couple of years with our students and instilling that challenges are good and for learning can be tough. Class Dojo gives educators a simple, but powerful way to help our students grasp their current "fixed" mindset and move toward a more fluid one. 

The best part......IT'S ALL FREE!

Thanks Class Dojo!
