Class Dojo(ClassDojo) is a platform for communication that changes the way students, guardians/parents, and teachers interact with each other. This program not only enables teachers to engage their students, but families also. In classrooms, instructors use the Class Dojo app to help connect with their pupils by giving them the encouragement (feedback points) to show critical skills, such as teamwork, leadership, critical thinking or persistence development. Two out of three schools prefer the use of
Class Dojo verses any other program.
Teachers can easily send videos, text messages, pictures, or stickers directly to parents, allowing them to experience special moments with their children on a daily basis. Instructors can also add posts to School Story and Class Story, a private news feed of moments in the classroom, available only to verified teachers, school leaders, and parents.
Learning platforms have developed drastically over the years, to help better the teaching techniques of teachers and involve parents/guardians. They need parents’ engagement in their child’s development, and the Class Dojo app makes that an easy task. This platform translates into 35 languages, and allows educators to share their student’s profile with parents. Guardians can access Class Dojo through an SMS/email invitation or a certain code sent directly from the teacher. Only the development of their children (not others) is viewable.
Students can also get involved by creating a Class Dojo account to view their progress. However, they must receive a code from their teacher before it can be connected to a class. If the child is under 13 years of age, parental consent is necessary before access to various features becomes available. Students can customize an adorable avatar representing them, view teacher feedback on their growth, and other things. In agreement with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), their age will be required, and if under 13 years of age, an email must be sent to the parent or guardian for consent. No other personal information will be required.
School Officials can also play an important role with Class Dojo, by sharing videos, photos, and notes on School Story. Only guardians/parents connected to the classes can view these. School officials can see highlights (an overview of school activity including engagement and feedback) make classes, and more.
This program has proven to help teachers engage their classroom. Parents adore the results, and students get the empowerment and positive skills they need. Class Dojo creates a positive environment in classrooms, and makes learning a community effort.
