Carol Dweck defines growth mindset as being based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can can cultivate through your efforts- everyone can change and grow through application and experience. (Dweck, pg 7)

What is the Growth Mindset?
I love Class Dojo! I began using it several years ago as a way to keep track of discipline and the students to use as an interactive attendance site. It became way more than that when I realized I could communicate with parents and they with me, instantaneously, and I could send them snapshots or videos of what is going on in class. When Class Dojo started doing their growth mindset videos, students were able to listen to someone other than myself telling them they were capable of doing anything they set their minds to.
