We live in a digital age where everything you need to know is right at your fingertips. Smartphones have made almost every aspect of life easier with all kinds of information being easily accessible through our phones. With millions of different apps available for smartphones, there is an app for anything and everything you can think of. One app in particular is making academic success easier for students, teachers and parents.
ClassDojo is a communication app for teachers, students and parents. An interactive classroom management tool, ClassDojo allows students to create their own avatars with customizable monster-like characters that live in the animated world of ClassDojo. The teacher tracks students’ behavior and performance through the app and gives students either positive or negative dojo points depending on how they have done. Each student’s points are recorded on ClassDojo and parents can check the app to see how their child is behaving or performing.
Teachers love using ClassDojo because it saves time and is very organized. Rather than using the classic “wall chart” method of tracking students’ behavior, teachers can just go on ClassDojo and click to reward students points. Rather than using paper and stickers to track behavior, all of the students’ points are in one organized place.
Parents and students also love the ClassDojo method. Parents appreciate the fact that they can consistently check their child’s performance on their own time rather than waiting for progress reports or parent-teacher conferences. Students love ClassDojo because it gives a fun and interesting spin to earning behavior and performance points.
