ClassDojo is the nation’s premiere education app. It has been around since 2011 and is now commonly used in classrooms across the nation. One of the reasons why so many teachers like ClassDojo is because it provides them with practical methods for helping students to do well in class. The app’s mindfulness training program is a feature that also gives this benefit.
Mindfulness training is a technique that gives students to control their mind, thoughts, energy and feelings. When a student is hyped up and headed in the wrong direction – their student can use the mindfulness training to get them on the right path. Classrooms that get out of hand can be calmed down through mindfulness training. Students who are having a hard time focusing and staying involved could get some of their pep back by using this mental health tool.
A few teachers started to use this technique back in May of 2019. Mindfulness training was introduced very late in the school year, so many teachers did not know about. However, it is expected to become more integrated into schools during the 2019 – 2020 school year. Teachers that get a head start with this technique should be able to start off their school year on a positive note. ClassDojo introduction of mindfulness training provides teachers and students with more resources for having a great day in class.
