ClassDojo is a classroom tool that helps teachers improve behavior in their classrooms quickly and easily. It also captures and generates data on behavior that teachers can share with parents and administrators. Also with this site, one can easily award feedback points for behavior in class in real-time, with just one click of your smartphone or laptop. This actually improves student behavior.
The benefits for teachers: in some classrooms, more than 50% of class time is spent managing behavior rather than delivering instruction; ClassDojo aims to greatly reduce this so teachers can do more teaching and less crowd control!
For students: research suggests the shorter the time period between an action and feedback for that action, the greater is the effect of the reinforcement. Specific positive reinforcement helps students develop a sense of purpose in the classroom, enhancing intrinsic motivation over time.
For parents: ClassDojo makes it easy to engage parents in their child’s development, by allowing teachers to provide them with realtime data from the classroom.
