A communication app is helping children understand and express their emotions in and beyond school.
FREMONT, CA: "ClassDojo's goal is to give every child on Earth an education they love. To do that, we need to ensure children can get the learning experiences they want and need," says Sam Chaudhary, Co-Founder, and CEO of ClassDojo. "We are obsessed with listening to our community, and serving them. ClassDojo teachers, families and children wanted a way to help children understand and cope with the powerful emotions they feel. This new Big Ideas series helps them with exactly that. Come to think of it, adults would probably get a lot from this series too!" The customer education brand behind the world's most extensively used communication app for pre-K-8 schools, ClassDojo, has introduced Big Ideas series for helping children recognize, understand, and express their emotions in and beyond school.
ClassDojo interacted with school teachers, families, and children to ask about the most significant challenges they anticipated in the new school year. The insights that the company acquired pointed to one consistent theme that is dealing with emotions. In the Big Ideas series, the company has produced 12 animated video episodes and discussion guides that will help children understand their emotions and build emotional intelligence.
The Big Idea Series enables ClassDojo to explore a range of emotions. One such new learning experience will be released each week that will cover moods and attitudes, overcoming challenges and positivity and optimism. Researches reveal that students who participate in school-based programs generally focused on social-emotional learning demonstrated significant strides in social and emotional skills and behaviors and enhanced academic performance. "The Big Ideas activities have been a powerful tool for introducing social-emotional learning skills into my classroom," says Anna Callendar, a teacher at A+ Arts Academy in Columbus, Ohio. "As an educator, it is exciting to have such a simple, intuitive powerful way to introduce these important ideas in my classroom—the children love them!"
ClassDojo is the pioneering communication app for primary schools around the world. ClassDojo is one of the most active-growing education technology companies of all time, used and loved by millions of teachers, parents, and students.
