ClassDojo Helps Everyone

ClassDojo is an app that was created for the benefit of the student, the teacher and the parents. The app is designed to help all three communicate on a different level than had been seen in classrooms before and is innovative in the way that it provides children the opportunity to have a more positive classroom experience. It is an excellent app that is used by thousands of teachers around the country and has garnered a lot of attention because of the way that it is making classrooms happier places for students as well as the teachers who are so instrumental in their lives.


 Students are able to earn points on the app. The points come from doing a good job in the classroom, helping their classmates out or doing something that really stands out from the mundane day. The points are accumulated over a period of time, usually a month. Students are able to get the points that they deserve for doing things the right way and they are able to get more out of the things that they have done. At the end of the time period, students are able to exchange their digital points for real-life prizes in the classroom. Students can eat a special lunch with the teacher, can go shoeless in the classroom or can even earn extra time on the playground.



Teachers are praising the app because it gives them a chance to truly streamline their classrooms. They are able to provide the same type of points for each child who goes above and beyond in the class and are able to do it without the discrimination that came with other rewards for kids. The app is cumulative so teachers like that aspect, as well. They can give their students the chance to really build up a lot of points throughout the time that they are using the app.


Parents are also in love with the app because of the way that they can communicate with their child’s teacher throughout the day. Not only are they able to see how their child is doing and the points that he or she has earned throughout the day but they are also able to talk to the teacher if they need to. The integrated messaging system gives parents and teachers a chance to chat with each other throughout the day instead of just at conferences or by email.
