ClassDojo is a mobile application that helps parents, teachers, and students communicate efficiently about the daily progress of the student. Amidst the busy schedules parents have, they still can get involved in their children’s school activities as updated by the teachers through ClassDojo.
How ClassDojo works
The teacher creates classrooms in the app, and then parents and students join in. The teacher records any student activity, academic performance and the general conduct of the student during school hours. Parents, on the other hand, get to view their children’s performance from wherever they are.
When the student’s performance is remarkable, they get to earn some dojo points which are just rewards to congratulate the student.
The ClassDojo app can be used on laptops, desktops and mobile phones. It is very compatible with all these devices making it very convenient for both the parent and the teacher wherever they are.
The advantages of ClassDojo
It increases the parents’ involvement in their children’s school activities. The app is used to display the daily activities of the students and parents can see the achievements of their kids.
The instant messaging service in the app provides a platform for the teachers to communicate with parents directly as the communication is real-time.
The app saves a lot of time that would have been used by parents to get their kids school performances. The teachers also save the time they would have used to write down a report for each student.
It helps students improve their behavior. When the parents and teachers reward the dojo points earned with a gift, the students do their best to remain on their best behavior. As time goes by, the students’ behavior and school performances become better as they struggle to earn more and more dojo points.
