IO2: i-CONTENT INTERACTIVITY
IO2.3 - Guide of applications for interactive content
Class Dojo is an online behavior management system intended to foster positive student behaviors and classroom culture. Students earn ‘Dojo Points’ based on their classroom conduct. Class Dojo’s primary goal is to encourage positive student behaviors and to provide a means for teachers and parents to communicate frequently and effectively about student development.
Teachers use Class Dojo to promote positive behaviors in their classroom and to strengthen lines of communication between school and home. This is done primarily through Class Dojo’s ‘Dojo Point’ system and messaging system that connects teachers and parents. Class Dojo is fully accessible on computers, tablets, smartphones, and can even be used on interactive whiteboards and projectors.
Classroom is where teachers and students build their classroom culture. They choose skills and values – things like creativity or teamwork – and share feedback on progress with each other. Classroom is the simplest way for teachers and students to build an incredible classroom culture together.
Messages allow teachers, parents, and school leaders to instantly message each other, without needing to share phone numbers or contact details. Messages can be translated into 35 different languages, and “Quiet Hours” lets teachers set away times so parents know when they are not available.
Stories are instantly updating streams of pictures and videos from the school day. Every class, school, and student has their own Story, all of which are shared home with parents. School Story helps school leaders to share with all families connected to their school, Class Story helps teachers to share with all families connected to their class, and Student Stories helps students to create their own story: a timeline – or portfolio – of what they’ve learned.
Class Dojo’s website and iOS and Android apps are completely free for teachers, administrators, and parents to use.
