Okay, so I've been using Class Dojo and I LOVE it! My students are still excited about it and I am enjoying how easy it is to use.
First...what is Class Dojo? Here is an explanation from the website.
Convinced yet? Well, here are some pictures and an explanation of how I use it in my classroom.
1- After creating an account you easily enter your student names and an avatar is automatically assigned to each student.
3. The implementation of Class Dojo was completely easy. I showed it to my students and they were instantly loving it! Here is how I use it in my classroom...
---I have six student computers that we use all the time. On one of the computers I always have Class Dojo up. If a student does something awesome (or not awesome) then I tell them to go get a point for whatever they did. The volume is turned up so I can hear if they five the positive or negative (there is a certain sound for each). If a student does go into the negative they are required to stay in during recess until their good behavior gets them out of the red and back into the green.
Easy peasy! You can reset the points whenever you want. I let them go for a week and if my students as a whole get up to a certain amount of points they get a "celebration" for the last 20 minutes on Friday.
I am loving Class Dojo and so are the parents of my students! I've received tons of positive feedback and no negative yet.
Do you use Class Dojo?
