Teacher Review

What is ClassDojo

ClassDojo is a free app that helps build amazing classroom and school communities. Teachers give feedback to students for any skill, like “Working hard” and “Being curious.” From the mobile app, parents view their child’s feedback, message directly with teachers and school leaders, and see beautiful photos and videos of classroom moments. 

ClassDojo digitally tracks each student’s behavior through the addition and subtraction of points that fall in specific categories that can be designed by the teacher and/or children. The purpose is to reward or deduct points from students for the behaviors that they are displaying and the choices they are making. 

It provides positive feedback to the child while they are doing well by displaying the behavior for which they earned a point, their rising point total, and by playing a cheerful sounding “ding”. It also provides informative feedback to the child if they make a poor choice by displaying the inappropriate behavior for which they lost a point, their decreased point total, and by playing a more striking negative tone. 

ClassDojo for Teachers

ClassDojo also helps teachers to communicate with students’ parents more effectively. Parents are able to view their child’s feedback on ClassDojo, teachers are able to instantly message them with important updates, share photos and videos to their Class Story. Parents can send teachers messages too. For parents who are unable to access the internet or do not have a smartphone, teachers are able to print out their child’s feedback for the week or month, and send it home for them to see.

Teachers can create their own targeted behaviors as needed. Reports are calculated each time student's points are updated and these can be shared with the students and parents if they accept your invitation to an account. It can be used to a small or large extent depending on your time, purpose, and interest. 

As part of the behavior management system. the students receive points for specific behaviors (On-task, working hard, persistence, etc.) and receive negative points for negative behaviors such as being off-task, bullying, or blurting out.

Description

ClassDojo is a beautiful classroom management and communication app for teachers to easily encourage students' behavior or skill in the classroom and keep parents in the loop.

Unlike most classroom management tools and behavior trackers like gold-star charts, ClassDojo helps teachers focus on positive feedback. Teachers can customize the behaviors or skills, such as “Working hard” and “Participating”, and instantly award students in class Dojo points for doing the right thing.

Teachers can also put different sets of students into groups, offering a simple way for teachers to award table points and foster a collaborative classroom culture.

ClassDojo helps teachers build a positive classroom culture by encouraging students and communicating with parents.

Best of all, teachers can engage parents and provide them with a way to stay connected to the classroom and know how their child is doing. Parents can see their child’s feedback from school in real-time, and view any comments made by teachers.

Teachers can broadcast a message to all parents (such as sharing a reminder, assignment, homework, or permission slip), and also send private, meaningful communications like text messages and photos so that parents are connected to the classroom without the hassle of emails and school newsletters.

Students can create their own accounts, customize their Dojo avatars, and self-reflect on their performance while in school or at home.

Unlike most classroom management organizers and class planners, ClassDojo can be used on any device: laptops, iPhones, iPads, tablets and phones, as well as smartboards - and it syncs seamlessly across all of them in real-time!

The ClassDojo Support Team is top-notch, and available around the clock if you ever need help, too!

ClassDojo is completely free for parents, teachers, and students!
