Class Dojo - Community Building UPDATED
As mentioned, Class Dojo is an awesome way to track student behavior, take attendance, encourage collaboration, involve parents, and a whole lot more. Plus, they've recently added messaging features and their new Class Story, which makes it easy and safe for parents to share photos and updates from the classroom with parents.
So with that in mind, let's take a stroll through the actual app. After you sign in to Class Dojo, you'll be presented with a sample class to help learn the basics of the program. You can start by clicking on any student in your class to award them positive or negative points based on their behavior.
And don't worry, if you're not a fan of the awards available, you can easily add your own under the settings menu.
If you click on the "Edit Students and Behaviors" button, you'll be able to change or add students, modify the behavior awards, and change the basic info of the class. Plus, if you've already set up one class the way you like, you can import that information into all your other classes.
Plus, if you're in need of a random student volunteer, you can click the "Random" button and the program will choose one for you.
And to make attendance-taking easier, Class Dojo has that feature as well. Just click on "attendance", select the students who are absent, hit save, and you're done!
