Class Dojo: Creating School Communities That Work

It can be said that in the “days of old,” teachers would communicate with the parents of their students in one of two methods; a letter home, or a phone call. It is sad to say, that despite the advances in technology and resources available to the educational community, many teachers still resort to such outdated methods of communication. Enter Class Dojo. This educational platform is a simple and free resource available to both the teacher and parent. ClassDojo helps create community not only in the classroom, but at home as well. So how does ClasDojo work? Check this out. In its most basic form, ClassDojo is a tool that helps teachers encourage their students behavior with praise, but as well, helps redirect students whom are off task. The ClassDojo platform allows students to create their own individual avatar that the teacher then utilizes to help encourage classroom culture. This ClassDojo feature really help the student “own their own growth.” The teacher then displays a variety of praises or comments that the student receives based on what they are doing for that particular day. These tasks are then tallied up into points which the student can then see and quantify as a simple numerical growth. In this basic usage of ClassDojo the teacher can accomplish amazing growth they never before saw. The more advance features of ClassDojo however, help share the success of the students with their home life. The possibilities for successful communication are truly endless with ClassDojo.
