Features like the picture and video messaging have created a way for teachers to share those moments within the classroom that parents miss.

Students enjoy watching their monster earn points and become class leaders. ClassDojo has decided to take this positive community goal a step further.

Growth mindset is a popular term in the education field and means that the student needs to recognize that all people can learn regardless. Their minds are able to expand and take in information and be successful. ClassDojo has partnered with Stanford to create a series of videos starring the popular monsters. These videos are in hopes that students will stop thinking they can’t do it and start believing in themselves. Research has shown that how a student views themselves can affect their progress. ClassDojo wants to help students be successful and grow as learners.

ClassDojo has grown and evolved since its early stages. The features, videos, and presentations they have all are geared towards helping students achieve their maximum potential and helping to ease the workload of teachers.
