ClassDojo Is Helping Teachers To Move Beyond Outdated Methods
ClassDojo is a creative solutions app for classrooms that helps to connect students, parents, and teachers in a meaningful and productive way. It is being used by 90% of K-8 schools in the United States as well as more than 180 countries worldwide and has been translated into over 35 different languages. It has won awards from Forbes, TechCrunch, Inc., and LinkedIn and continues to astonish teachers and parents in classrooms wherever it is being used.
Out With The Old and In With The New
The app allows teachers to award their students in very unique ways, because the old ways of rewarding children with marks on a board are fading. In place of these outdated methods ClassDojo is helping to put better tools in teacher’s hands, such as, the +1 system in the ClassDojo app that allows teachers to give their students positive reward marks when they perform well or simply raise their hand to answer a question. This system is not only making it much easier for teachers to quickly give their students positive marks, but it is also encouraging shy children as well as other children who don’t usually participate an extra incentive to do so.
Parents Get A Better Idea of What Their Kid Is Really Doing In Their School
ClassDojo is also providing parents with a better understanding of what their children are doing in their class so they can connect with them in a more meaningful way after school. The app does so by allowing parents to watch what kinds of activities their children are participating in and exactly what their input is. The new Student Stories feature in ClassDojo will allow school kids to add videos and images to stories they tell that are centered around what they learning, and these stories can be shared with their parents. To add to this, teachers who use ClassDojo can instantly message any of their student’s parents without them knowing they are doing so, and parents can translate these messages into any language that is needed.
