How I Use It
I tried Class Dojo with two other teachers and for some of the students it worked. In both classrooms, the children who struggled noticed their avatar receiving correction marks and it had negative effects on them, triggering worse behavior. Both teachers stopped using it.
My Take
I believe that Class Dojo could be beneficial in a regular classroom. However, it could have negative effects in a classroom that has children with extreme behavior difficulties.
