It’s a brand new year, and brand new starts can bring about much excitement as well as trepidation. In embracing the decision to make a positive change in the life of my students, this year I will be introducing a number of aspects to my business. My aim is to engage my students in a variety of fun and interactive ambitions, as well as keeping parents updated on their child’s progress from not only my point of view, but that of their child. I figure this is one of the most powerful aspects of learning – allowing the children to take ownership of their learning, and to engage the parents in the process as well.
So, I am proudly introducing Class Dojo
“In 1978, Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck made a profound discovery: children who believed their intelligence could grow did better in school, and better in life. She called this basic belief about intelligence “mindset.”
In 2016, Carol Dweck’s lab at Stanford, PERTS, partnered with ClassDojo to bring this important lesson to classrooms everywhere through a five episode video series.”
Here is a snippet of one of the mindset clips.
This is exciting as not only are the students engaging with me, they are going to be getting a visual representation of their progress in ‘real time’.
Parents and students will get updates and information pertaining to their learning with me.
I can’t wait to see how this goes.
