School Psych Corner: What ClassDojo Monsters Can Teach Kids About Growth Mindset
Many teachers are excited about the compelling research on the power of a growth mindset to change student perceptions of themselves as learners. Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck discovered that when kids receive a message that their brains are malleable and their abilities can be developed, they approach learning as a challenge that they are ready to embrace. That message resonates with many teachers who have long wanted that type of classroom environment. But while the research is compelling, many teachers still struggle to weave growth mindset into their daily teaching practice.
To help provide resources for teaching growth mindset the ed-tech company ClassDojo is teaming up with Stanford’s Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS) center to produce a series of five animated videos on growth mindset featuring the ClassDojo characters many students already know.
