By @RKenda7 – @ClassDojo: How can it be used to Promote Growth Mindsets & Learning Power?

ClassDojo was originally designed in the US as a digital-based behaviour management system where teachers gave children points for choosing to do the ‘correct’ behaviours.  The video below explains a little more…

 

There is no right or wrong way to use ClassDojo as it will depend on your own (and school’s) ethos and values as a teacher.

However, not being a big fan of using extrinsic rewards systems, but recognising the motivation that ClassDojo could create, I have been exploring using it to reward behaviours that the school and I are trying to promote, namely, building learning power/growth mindsets.

New behaviours are added every half-term and the recent adaptation of changing the weighting of the points means that we can value some behaviours more than others.  The points are collated over a two week period, at the end of which the highest point scorer receives a leaning power certificate.  There are still many features that need exploring, so if you have not signed up for free yet, why not give it a go and experiment in your own classroom?
