How I Use It
I use Class Dojo as a tool to track behaviors, communicate with parents, and offer incentives. I am a middle school teacher, so I have 6 different periods. The different classes compete with each other for points, and by the end of the term, the winning class gets some kind of incentive. For communicating with parents, I am able to share class newsletters on Class Dojo, as well as reminders for upcoming assignments and tests. There's also a messaging feature that I can use to chat with parents individually.
My Take
I've used Class Dojo for years and it's been the best tool for classroom management and communication. The students love earning points and it helps give them the extra motivation needed to put forth their best effort.
