Going by Past Statistics on Teens Stress, ClassDojo’s Mindfulness Curriculum Could Just Be the Savior

Creators of classroom communication app, ClassDojo, in collaboration with the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence are working on introducing a mindfulness curriculum in schools around the world. Lessons are about to start and videos and guides release in the pipeline, though few classes have already begun at the Yale Child Study Center. About 90 percent of primary and middle school teachers use ClassDojo products. ClassDojo’s materials have ground-up change within students between 5 to 14 years of age, as they are already aware of some lessons, such as the growth mindset.

Past studies done on teens showed that a lot of kids are battling stress, creating a community-based responsibility. A 2013 study showed that about 50 percent of them felt an overwhelming anxiety in 2012. In 2014, 27 percent indicated that they were extremely stressed in the school year while 34 percent expected increase in the stress. In 2016, many parents noted that their children experienced moderate to high stress. Few schools that have embraced mindful lessons reported good results, which prompted ClassDojo to think of such an idea that will go a long way in creating a positive culture within classrooms and schools.
