General | Latest Info

A ClassDojo is a tool that teachers can use in class from start to finish. Begin with a short Think-Pair-Share activity, using a timer and noise manager to keep discussion on track and respectful. Next, assign activity for student portfolios: Let them draw out challenge math problem, record video discussing novel they're reading, write hypothesis for science lab, or snap pictures of complete assignment for teacher feedback. Once or twice during lesson, send a quick positive message or image to parent. This is a great way to strengthen home-school connection, celebrate classroom successes, and document student learning over time. Don't forget to add pictures to your class story to keep parents in the loop. You might even want to record yourself explaining assignments, so parents can help at home. Throughout class, award points to positively reinforce individuals or groups to meet or exceed expectations, or send gentle reminders to students or groups who need them. Be careful to ensure that individuals aren't publicly singled out in negative ways: Consider privately using app to track student behavior. Close out class with a five-minute growth mindset activity, giving kids a chance to wind down and reflect on their learning for day. Having all these options built into one handy tool cuts down on the need for multiple products and gives teachers lots of data to inform instruction. ClassDojo is an online classroom management platform where teachers can record and track student behavior, facilitate classroom activities, curate student portfolios, and communicate with parents. Student sign-in is simple with QR code, link, or Google account. From the teacher dashboard, teachers can create original activities or use toolkit to post class announcements, conduct warm-ups, create random groups, and more. Depending on how they choose to set things up, teachers can share information privately or publicly, often displaying to class on screen or interactive whiteboard. Along with points award or deduct for customizable positive and negative behaviors, teachers can assign activities to students to submit in the form of videos, text, images, or drawings; once approve, these are documented in portfolios that follow students from year to year. Newer features include templates where teachers can add five-minute lessons to class story; here, topics such as growth mindset and perseverance give students chance to learn valuable social and emotional skills. On school-to-home side, parents can create accounts to see behavioral and academic progress as well as to communicate with teacher via Messenger tab. Teachers can also choose to share classroom events and photos, giving families the chance to feel more connected to the classroom. Many teachers see ClassDojo as a transformational tool in their efforts toward employing better classroom management. This type of real-time, classwide-communication can help make behavior and learning expectations more clear and concrete for students. At the same time, it's important to note that some features may not be for everyone.

ClassDojo is a simple, colourful classroom management app for teachers, parents and students. Teachers can use apps to keep parents up-To-date about important matters for their children or class in general, reward and praise student behaviour and instill classroom values. With its charming monsters and simple reward system, this app is especially well-suit for classes of younger learners. It also provides additional resources for teachers, such as inspirational videos and classroom decorations featuring its cute characters. In ClassDojo, each student receives an avatar in the form of a cute little monster. You simply tap on monster and mark positive or negative Dojo Point. Student behaviour is divided into groups of classroom values: these are completely customisable, but default settings include values like hard work, teamwork and respect for others. By gamifying classroom behaviour management, app hops to improve student engagement. Students can also use this app to share their own work in the form of Student Stories, folders of images or videos shared with class and parents. Similarly, teachers can share images or videos with the whole class and parents. Teachers can also send and receive messages from parents. This is a classroom management app, one that doesn't include any kind of assignment tracking or sharing. Combine that with its focus on lovable cartoon characters, and it's clear that this is a focus on managing classrooms of younger children, who need to learn about appropriate behaviour more than they need to learn about algebra. The interface is easy to use, especially given that it's supposed to be used by children, and it should work well in schools where students are issued digital devices. Integrating parents can be trickier, if only because 20 to 30 families with 20 to 30 completely different devices are inevitably going to produce some technical challenges. Teachers may well find themselves doing at least some of their behaviour reporting old-fashioned way. In most cases, however, it will be very useful, and it's especially nice to be able to communicate with parents quickly and directly without giving them phone number and having to worry about over-enthusiastic evening calls. Teacher resources provided on ClassDojo's website are helpful in terms of getting students and parents up to speed, although they do rather rely on company using teacher as unpaid marketing representative. It's small price to pay for an app that's otherwise free, of course. Under the right circumstances, ClassDojo can be very useful. It requires good availability of compatible devices in the classroom, certain amount of setup on the part of the teacher and a willing and engaged group of parents. When it's working, it do simplify behaviour management and hopefully make instilling correct classroom values easier and more enjoyable. If your classroom meets these requirements, it can be a valuable tool.
