Research on the power of children mindset has been an ongoing activity that is focused on changing the perception about themselves as the learners. With the ClassDojo monster in place, children are positioned in a better place that enhances them to approach the challenges of learning through acknowledging that their abilities to learn and develop are malleable and therefore it brings together the key stakeholders including the pupils, teachers and the parents.
In partnership with Stanford project of education research, ClassDojo has endeavored to provide resources that facilitate the teaching of the mindset growth. These efforts are seen in the recently developed series of five animations videos that are focused on growth mindset through incorporating ClassDojo characters that are known to many students.
Communication has been greatly enhanced through the creation of communication platform where pupils, teachers and parents interact. In this regard, a communication platform where teachers share text messages, photos, videos, is provided and therefore parents are informed of the class happenings. As seen through the ClassDojo twitter teachers or students can add photos and videos directly and parents can see their children work through the help of ClassDojo app.
Through the ClassDojo, the teachers day to day development are kept on check and this helps to come up with the most appropriate strategic work. The strategic use of videos has a significant impact and this explains how growth on mindset impacts the student management levels. ClassDojo is opposed to praising the effort alone but rather it articulates that parents and teachers should capitalize on strategies as a way of helping the children to attain the desired grades.

Also, it makes schedule of the activities with the consent of the parents. Actually, parents can trace the children activities through the help of the video and photo upload option offered by the program.
