How I Use It
After setting up a class and deciding on positive and negative criteria, students can earn/lose points for the noted behaviors. Teachers customize the criteria for their classes and can even solicit student input, i.e. creating class rules/norms. The site/app can be projected so students can be aware of their status for a given day. Students also have user logins and can keep track of their points on their own. Motivation and engagement are often issues in a classroom and Class Dojo can give the teacher and students another method to increase both!
My Take
Class Dojo is another tool for teachers to manage classes of students. The program is engaging for younger students and easy to use for the teacher.
