Class Dojo's "Big Ideas" with Mojo!

Hello again friends!

I'm back today to share an exciting new video series from my favorite classroom management tool - Class Dojo!


So, what's happening?
Class Dojo is launching a new video series and accompanying discussion guides that can help each and every classroom learn about growth mindset and how to start developing one.  The series will be five episodes in length that follow Mojo (your favorite green monster) and his friend Katie as they explore different aspects of growth mindset.  The video series can be used in any K-12 classroom!

The first video is live NOW!  The next four episodes will be released on the following Sundays so that classroom and school communities can all talk about the core principle in each video about growth mindset.

Let's learn a little more about this program...

“Growth mindset is a phenomenally important idea that’s been proven to benefit children well into the future,” said Liam Don, co-founder and Chief Product Officer at ClassDojo. “In developing our ‘Big Ideas’ series we wanted to make these transformative ideas easy for teachers to incorporate into their classroom, and delightful for students. Our partnership with Stanford PERTS is a good example of how technology can help make big ideas accessible and exciting for students in every classroom. We’re thrilled to share this ‘Big Idea’ with our community of teachers -- the first of more to come!”

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 of the five growth mindset videos will be paired with a lesson guide so teachers can reinforce growth mindset thinking with their students through activity-based learning.

New episodes will be found HERE each week.  Discussion guides will also be available as new episodes are released.

I've linked the first video for you here, but make sure to follow the link above to get more information and discussion guide(s).

  1. I love showing these to my students and I am so happy Class Dojo has done this! I love hearing the positive conversations my 4th graders have about work ethic. I have been reading up on your class dojo points system and will have to stop myself from putting it into place in the last 3 weeks of school!!! Question - what amount of points do you use? I have been using 5 points for everything, but those add up super fast.

    1. I use 1 point for most everything. On average my kids earn between 4-8 points a day - but I do have some super awesome kiddos that earn more than 8 points a couple days a week!
