Class Dojo - Review from a Parent

Overall, this software has helped tremendously to stay in contact with teachers and school admin staff without relying on personal email accounts.

Its useful only if both parties use it.

If i had a job as a teacher id love class dojo. I realize especially with middle and high school aged children there is a lot of classwork and homework to worry about. To have instant access to a parent would be a huge help and likewise as a parent to teacher relationship. You have that personal connection and can ask questions, explain problems in the classroom or at home and show off how well your child or student is doing and what they have accomplished.

Positively rewarding and motivating students

Pros

Class Dojo is like a teacher's digital classroom management assistant! There's lots to love!
- First, it's free. Who doesn't like free?
- Next, it's extremely user-friendly. Within 15 minutes you can set-up and learn to navigate the features and layout. In just 5 more minutes, you can roll it out to your classroom. Teacher's are already lacking time, and the simplicity of this platform is wonderful.
- It's versatile! You can use it systematically as an everyday part of your lesson - managing and tracking behavior and learning data or you can use it for a much less intensive purpose like tracking time, adding audio cues for your students, keeping a scoreboard during a game, etc.
- Parents can link with their students to learn more. This creates a paperless communication system between the student and home.
- They've recently added a digital portfolio piece for students. I'm still new and exploring, but this looks to be a powerful addition that students/teachers could use for creating and sharing assignments (reducing paper). It seems to also have built-in features (activities), too. Excited to learn more!
- Last but not least, I suppose my favorite, yet simple, reason I love ClassDojo is that it just reminds me to be positive. I can focus on the positive I see in students and reward and reinforce their positive behavior.

Cons

This is not a con to ClassDojo, but just an observation - ClassDojo will not solve all of your classroom management issues. It is not a quick, easy fix, so don't view it that way. You have to carefully consider usage if you want this to be a main ingredient in your classroom. In that train of thought, it could cause students to act even more negatively because they're now able to gain a bigger audience and receive more attention. Once again, this is not a ClassDojo problem, I just want future users to be aware.

Class Dojo - Review from a Parent

Used Daily for 2+ years

Overall, this software has helped tremendously to stay in contact with teachers and school admin staff without relying on personal email accounts.

Pros

Class Dojo allows you to stay connected between teachers and your students. As long as teachers use it, it provides constant communication that is easily accessible. With multiple students, it consolidates all the messages into one area and allows for private messages to each teacher. If you have multiple students, and the school sends out a mass message, you only get the message once which I really like. It also allows you to upload documents to your child's portfolio for the teacher to view.

Cons

If you have multiple students, the private messaging can be a little hectic especially if a specials teacher emails you. That specials teacher might also have your other children, so it is necessary to figure out what student they are messaging you about. It can be confusing and takes a minute to figure it out.

To have instant access to a parent would be a huge help and likewise as a parent to teacher relationship. You have that personal connection and can ask questions, explain problems in the classroom or at home and show off how well your child or student is doing and what they have accomplished.

Pros

I liked it because it helped me keep track on what was happening in my son's classroom. It was fairly straightforward with the directions in how to use it. It also gave me access to his teacher, so it is better then waiting on someone to return your call. There is also a reward system for the kids depending on how well there day is going they get dojo points. My son loved getting good reviews with class dojo, when his teacher actually used it. You just log on to class dojo on your phone or computer and put in a special code for your child and you have instant access to that classroom and teacher. It's not a live feed, more like a live email with pictures and videos.

Cons

The fact is it does not matter how often you use it or check it if the other person (example: teacher) does not use it too. There is a reward system that the elementary school used called dojo points, if you have a good day you get more points. His teacher rarely used class dojo which was very frustrating for me as a parent. She did not reply when left messages until weeks later.

ClassDojo is amazing for progress tracking and keeping up with what's going on at my child's school.

Pros

As a parent, I love the fact that I'm able to track my child's progress every single day as the teacher posts to the app. Not only that, I can track his progress for this year, but with previous classes as well. I can also see if my kid has homework.

Cons

The only thing that I think could be better is the ease of removing old classes. I had to login online to figure out how to remove classes that go back as far as kindergarten.
