ClassDojo also gives teachers feedback on how effective they are at managing a certain situation, using ClassDojo tokens for motivation. It is becoming an essential resource for teachers everywhere, with over 1 million users in classrooms worldwide. Some of the features that this app provides include:
It allows teachers to see student behavior, at all times. It is a real-time feedback system which lets you know if students are engaged or distracted in the classroom. Teachers can also create assignments on ClassDojo, assign them an amount of points, and once finished/turned in, it can be marked as complete by the teacher. This makes organizing assignments much easier, because there are no papers to grade or folders to go through. Also going back to the points, they can be added/deducted in real time so there’s no waiting when it comes to the student trying to see his/her score for an assignment.
Its a must-have for parents and teachers because of some of the reasons followed:
2) Creates instant motivation and accountability for students
3) Helps identify behavioral problems early on (knowing where to look, and knowing what types of things to look for)
4) Offers an incentive for good behavior (the “Quarterly Report”)
