How I Use It
This classroom management tool was used at the school in various grades. I worked in multiple classrooms and was able to have the classroom management with me at all times on my phone and use for all classrooms. The children would earn points for positive behavior and loose points for negative behavior. The children would then turn their points into dollars which would be deposited into their checking account. The children could write checks to buy items from the dojo store. This worked wonderful for the most part of the class but there were a few who needed extra encouragement and also carried a behavior chart with them to all classes and then if they got a good rating that would give them points this helped with the children who always seemed to end in the negative.
My Take
This app is a great teaching tool for positive behavior in the classroom. I felt that it served the kids and myself by creating a positive classroom environment where learning was able to excel. You can open up the parent involvement too. Parents are able to see their child's points daily and communicate with the teacher too. You can also use this part as away to announce things to everyone as a whole like assignment dates or important information. It would be better if you could center the goals with individual student needs in mind.
