“Class Dojo” sounds a bit like exotic martial arts instruction, but it’s actually something more of us can relate to – especially those who are students, parents, or teachers. Class Dojo is a digital platform that helps teachers and parents build a positive, interactive classroom culture.
Would you like to better understand what happens in your child’s classroom? Class Dojo helps you do just that. It creates a culture where student, teacher, and parent work together to improve the learning experience for all the children in the classroom.
Class Dojo has been well-researched by education specialists, and universities, and is now used in half the schools in the United States, and in 180 countries. Let’s face it, the old methods of “classroom management,” are just not efficient, and do not work well anymore. Times of changed, and we (students, parents, and educators) must adapt. The technology of Class Dojo can help.
Class Dojo can help by getting everyone on the same page. Teachers and parents can set up class goals. Do students need to share more? Solve problems together? Cooperate? Class Dojo makes this all possible with an objective means to track and improve the social dynamics of the classroom.
How does Class Dojo work? It starts with your child’s teacher who sets up the easy-to-use platform – identifying the strengths and weaknesses of students. Does this group of students socialize well together? Great, that will be noted as a strength to build on during the school year. Do they need to show more respect, or do better completing their homework on time? Those items can become part of the Class Dojo profile, so that parents and teachers can target improvements.
Here’s the great part. Instead of relying on your child’s teacher to tell you what is happening in the classroom, you can see it yourself through videos, pictures, and messages via Class Dojo. All of this becomes part of the “Classroom Story,” that develops over time – a story that you become a part of.
Students participate with their personal “Dojo Monsters” that earn (or lose) points based on their performance and behavior. With everyone on the same page, there is no miscommunication, time lags, or confusion. Ask your local school whether Class Dojo might become part of classroom success for your child and community.
