First let me start off by showing you what Classdojo looks like from my class screen:
What I love most about ClassDojo is that I have noticed a change in my class. I mentioned in a previous post that my students were going through some spring fever. Well this changed all of that. They want to listen and participate. They want to read nicely and help others. They love hearing the catchy sound when they get a point.
I also love that you can configure the settings to whatever behavior management you use. For example, I have "Quiet during Daily 5" for positive behavior or "Not following directions" for negative behavior. It's awesome!
Other things I like is that you can create other classes for it as well and you can change the Avatars. I have that as an option when a child reaches 10 points, they can change their monster, if they choose.
Before I forget, one of my students said, "Ms. Campos, they're in alphabetical order.." (first name at least). That makes me so happy as a teacher because they are learning as well!
Another thing that's great about
ClassDojo is their customer service. I couldn't access it from my Android, so I contacted them and within a few hours Kalen solved my problem and was very courteous. A great product with great customer service, what more can you ask for?
If you haven't heard of it or you are hesitant give it a go. It's best if you do have a projector or smartboard but it's not necessary.
Try it...you'll love it!
