ClassDojo is the ideal summation of how learning can take place in an informal classroom setting where all parties are involved. The app was literally designed by teachers that answered over 20,000 surveys. They had input as did parents, and by far ClassDojo has made classroom education easier and more efficient.
Truly, ClassDojo involves parents, teachers and students in a cooperative effort to make learning both fun and effective. Each student has a path of learning set down on a variable basis with in certain curriculum guidelines. Teachers have more time to teach because the students’ attention is riveted on their own app. From classroom participation to individual work, ClassDojo gets the job done.
Of course it was bound to happen, with cell-phone technology where it is today with interactive apps already a part of most students daily lives, it was inevitable that the same applications would be carried over to the school setting.
When a child is sick or has an issue of any kind, parents can communicate immediately with the teacher, and if the student misses any work in class, it is a simple matter to address it from the ClassDojo at home so time is not wasted getting together the makeup work.
Everything from regular classwork, photos, videos, special events and any other activity that the teacher and parents agree on can be shared on ClassDojo. The app is already translated into 35 different languages and is currently in use for over 90 percent of all the United States students from Kindergarten through the Eighth Grade.
It is also easy for teachers to teach as they don’t have to spend so much time with the discipline aspect. Children enjoy the app because they can work at their own pace and with applications with which they are already familiar.
