What sets ClassDojo apart from everything else? The answer lies in the simple yet truly effective platform embed into ClassDojo. The scene is set; its 7:45 a.m. and as students rush into their classrooms, their attention and focus is probably not where their teacher would like. How to redirect? In a ClassDojo classroom, students redirect themselves. In a ClassDojo classroom students are daily aware of their own expectations. But how? It’s simple; a point system…that really works! ClassDojo allows students to gain or loss points based on literally a limitless array of tasks. The secret to the ClasDojo point system is its personal nature. To set up ClassDojo, students are required to create a personal avatar. This avatar is unique to every student. This personal touch, as simple as it may seem, helps students own their behavior. It helps students earn and own every point. Students will not value what is not theirs. ClassDojo helps teachers not only give points, but in reality create a positive classroom climate. Without even knowing it, students are learning and daily repeating the classroom expectations set up by the teacher. So, in the daily ritual of a ClasDojo classroom, students enter the learning atmosphere in a completely different manner. As chaotic as a morning may start off in, students in a ClassDojo room are already aware of the classroom climate. These students are eager to earn, accomplish, and empower there own learning.
