A New Dawn for Children Skill Development as ClassDojo Partnership brings a New Learning Series.
Premier US Paralympic and Olympic athletes, among them Allyson Felix, are set to interact with children in a series called Heart of a Champion. The 10 part series announced at the beginning of this year will be launched through a partnership between Classroom Champions, NBC Olympics, and ClassDojo.
The series will feature some prominent athletes in the US athletics team and will be available in classrooms across the US for free through ClassDojo. The series will also be available to the public for free. Each episode in the series will have one athlete share their experience with a particular emotional or social trait. The episodes are formulated so that each athlete will speak about the core skill that primarily applies to their career.
The series seeks to provide children with relatable people to learn how to develop core skills such as courage, goal setting, and perseverance. According to a press statement released by the CEO of Classroom Champions, the partnership with ClassDojo could not have come at a better time. In the statement, Mesler states that in the current world where millions of children struggle to find their role models, the series will be instrumental as it will present the children with athletes who can fill that role.
The series also seeks to build confidence in children as they navigate the tumultuous life, and demand for them to hone their skills grows ever stronger. By bringing people who have succeeded in doing so, the series will provide the children with role models in their respective skills. Among athletes who will feature in the series is David Boudia, the 31-year-old, four-time medalist Olympic diver who will talk about focus.
For Boudia, athletes have the right heart and character and are the true meaning of being human. He states that athletes have to master endurance and integrity, which he would like to pass on to children. Other athletes include Sophia Herzog, the silver medalist Paralympic swimmer, and Chuck Aoki, the wheelchair Paralympian.
