Every teacher wants a calm student able to handle the stresses of life, says ClassDojo product designer Chris Frank. That’s why the education-based app is expanding its Big Ideas platform and video series to include new tools for teaching mindfulness.
Launching Monday and backed by research from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, the new effort introduces the concept of powerful emotions via an animated video geared toward young students, giving teachers resources and language to discuss mindfulness and help students handle stress.
