Dojo

2018-12-30

I love the notes I can add when I give or deduct a point. It is great documentation for the helicopter parents as well as the ones who are not as involved but then act surprised when you contact them about behavior issues. It is also great for me as I can forget the details of the offense as the day goes on.

Pros

It is very easy to use and with mobile apps, it is available to me at all times.

Cons

I do not care for the class story. I use it most for classroom behavior management.

Great Management Tool

2018-11-28

Overall it is a great tool to both monitor and track behavior and progress and communicate with parents.

Pros

The program puts numerous classroom management and communication tools all in one convenient, easy to use location.

Cons

The program does take some training and practice to get used to all of the many features. It is also formatted toward somewhat younger students so it can lose its effectiveness after a certain age/grade level.

An amazing management tool for your class

2019-08-15

I have mostly had a great experience with ClassDojo, I found that I can utilize it no matter what class I'm in.

Pros

My favcorite feature is one that allows you to import your own character, which helps students personalize their virtual self.

Cons

Mainly because that age-range is not good with mobile technology.

Excellent Tool for Student Engagement

2019-03-10

Free program that was east to use, met the needs of me as a teacher and both my students and their parents. Will continue to use.

Pros

I also liked that this allowed me to communicate with parents of the students in my class and easily and safely keep them updated on the social and academic processes at school.

Cons

Could not generate many reports with attendance. It was limiting in what I could mark, so I could not use the attendance part of this software for tracking student attendance.

Using ClassDojo saves me time as a teacher but relays the same level of communication with families.

Great and Easy Classroom Management

2019-07-24

I would definitely recommend using ClassDojo if you want to switch up your classroom management.

Pros

I liked the ease of use and how quickly you are able to track data and manage behaviors.

Cons

The one thing I did not like about his software is how easily the students could get access to their parents accounts and could message from there. I think there could possibly be more security there.

Wonderful Class Management Software

2019-07-25

Great class behavior and classroom management tool for teachers, especially those in younger grades.

Pros

I loved that this was a tool that really helped connect me, as a teacher, with several of the lesser-engaged parents. The kids would be very proud of their good scores and work towards tangible goals set up by both parents and myself. When kids weren't doing good, negative concerns would be immediately accessible by parents, so they would be able to open discussion lines right after the school day ended.

Cons

It didn't always allow me to give as much detail to the parent as I would've liked, but it did allow me to prompt the parent when there was an issue that needed follow up.
