ClassDojo is a universal cloud-based educational service that’s designed to make online communication between teachers, students, and parents effective and intuitive. The app lets teachers organize workflows and control the educational process without too much effort, while students obtain knowledge in a clear and gamified form.
If you are a teacher, you can use the ClassDojo platform on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to unite all the students online and engage them to communicate with you more freely. The system makes it much easier to track the progress of each student and come up with progress boosting solutions based on the objective data.
While in class, you can use the app to measure the noise level in class, organize working groups for particular tasks, to track time, and share the process with parents. You can simply take a photo or record a video of kids working and show it to all the parents simultaneously.
If you are a student, you can be sure that the app will make the entire learning process much more exciting. ClassDojo makes communication with teachers much friendlier and lets you stay on top of all school projects and homework 24/7. There’s no chance that you don’t write down your homework anymore as all the tasks and progress is recorded online. You can also create your digital portfolio with images, videos, audio recordings, drawings, and other materials. The only disadvantage is that the system is designed for children of elementary and secondary schools. Older students may not be satisfied with the style.
If your children go to a class where ClassDojo is applied, you can connect to the system for free and watch how your kids are doing. Due to private and group chats, you can discuss various questions with teachers and other parents, solve various problems, and ask for the teacher’s advice anytime. As the system is so transparent and kids know that you are always connected and notified of all homework and events, they will try to be more disciplined. Actually, this positive effect has been already proved by hundreds of schools that actively use ClassDojo.
