Class Dojo have added a series of five ‘Big Ideas’ videos to their website highlighting the importance of adopting a growth mindset and some strategies for developing one. The videos bring the Dojo characters to life as they struggle when faced with challenges or discover that they cannot do something that they thought they were really good at. The videos are being released every Monday, with the first 3 already available with downloadable discussion guides. Check out ‘Chapter 1: A Secret about the Brain‘ below before clicking here to see the complete the series, including: Chapter 2: The Magic of Mistakes; Chapter 3: The Power of ‘Yet’; Chapter 4: The World of Neurons and Chapter 5: Little by Little. Thank you to the team at Class Dojo.
