The greatest positive reinforcement for students

Reviewed on 2019/03/12

Pros

ClassDojo's software is user friendly for teachers. In my classroom, it is used as incentive for positive behaviors. I use it heavily when students are off task or loud, by giving other students Dojo points for being on task or quiet. It is reinforcement of others with tons of verbal recognition to desired behaviors in hopes to change the undesired behaviors from other students. Rarely do I use the option to take away points, but it is usually a large disappointment to my students. Because I'm only a Special Education classroom, we don't have parties for Dojo points like the regular education classrooms. But the points in my classroom affect their regular ed. rewards. The younger grades usually have class points and have parties, where as the upper elementary grades have an auction in my school. Their points get turned into fake money on auction day and students are encouraged to bring in goods to sell or buy.

Cons

My least favorite aspect is not concerning software, but that some parents would like photos of the class while others have declined permission to have their student's picture taken. It makes it rough trying to figure out who can be in a picture and who cannot. I enjoy talking with parents with live time updates on their student's behaviors, but I struggle with the picture aspect.

Overall ClassDojo is the best teacher messaging app available, as I've said we've used 2 other apps and they were clunky and not as user-friendly as ClassDojo.

Pros

I like that in ClassDojo my sons teacher has the ability to message myself and their mother at that same time and we can have a group chat. We get information about homework, classwork, and any issues that are arising at school. We get messages from the principal and support staff too about school events and the level of communication is unmatched. We were using a couple of other apps previously and they don't compare with the ease of use of ClassDojo. The kids even get their own user interface and experience. My children are too young for this feature but not for long.

Cons

There is a free version, which we use currently but getting setup can be challenging especially when the teacher doesn't share the correct codes.. You can't just type the teachers name to get added you have to have their invite code. It's good for security but somewhat inconvenient.

Great way to talk to teacher

Reviewed on 2021/12/09

Pros

I like how I can easily talk to my kid's teacher without having to call the school or text them. I send them a private message on classdojo. The teacher can also send private or to the whole class photos, reminders or text about their day. You can easily save the photos the teachers share with you of your student

Cons

Biggest con is when a new school year happens it don't automatically delete or update your student to the new teachers. So, you will have multiple "monsters" for your kids but only one will be the current year. Also, the only way to save video is if you go onto your laptop and you have to right click on the video to save it.

I like using it to communicate with parents (privately or as a whole group) and to share photos and videos of what we are doing in the classroom each week on the Class Story. The students love to play Dojo Island, which is a game they can play on their own chrome books, while interacting with their classmates within the game.

Pros

I have used Class Dojo for many years and it keeps improving with time. I use it to track my students' behavior and communicate with parents. It allows my students to monitor their own points in order to be able to redeem points to shop at our class store. I also love the randomizer button to call on students and the ability to create groups.

Cons

I like all the features of the most recent version of Class Dojo.

I have been a user of ClassDojo as a parent of a child in elementary and middle school. I loved being able to contact her teachers both privately and in a post on the class feed and be responded to quickly. I also liked the reminders for things like Theme Days and Spirit Week. Getting pics of the kids in the middle of the day was always a source of joy for me.On the con side, the app is a little clunky and can be difficult to navigate. I am fairly tech-savvy and have used a lot of team/communication apps in my day and I find that this is common. It's usually because these types of apps offer a lot of features and can be a little too much sometimes. Overall, I was glad to have ClassDojo as a resource and was a bit let down when my kiddo switched schools and they just use email. It felt like a step back. The small issues with ClassDojo are easy fixes, like the difficulty I found in selecting my avatar or finding older chats.

Pros

At the moment updates about my child or her class. Able to receive private messages and general sort of newsfeed updates as well as pics. Helpful reminders.

Cons

It can a bit difficult to navigate on the mobile version. Had difficulty setting up an avatar, for example.
