How I Use It
The seventh inning stretch can’t come soon enough, but ClassDojo can ease the way as you’re standing on the mound. Class Dojo is a digital behavior management system available via a website AND an app. This tool allows the teacher to create avatars and customize positive as well as negative behaviors to monitor. This tool has anticipated the needs of elementary and middle school teachers alike and allows for multiple students, multiple classes, groupings, a student selection tool and reporting capabilities. Class Dojo even allows your substitute teachers to monitor class behavior!!
The avatars, sounds and strategies definitely engage students and truly WORK in a structured classroom setting. I recommend the upper level teacher give this app more than simply a cursory glance. Although the 'monsters' seem juvenile, the app has the flexibility to customize avatars (sports team logos, student pics, etc). I found the app limited from a data perspective. Although you can print and forward data, I would like it to have the ability to export the data into a spreadsheet.
