Classdojo

I found Classdojo to be very interesting. It was the first technology I have come across that allows teachers to address student behavior. This technology enables a teacher to track a student’s behavior in a non-threatening manner. Teachers can assign each student an avatar and give rewards or consequences via devices such as computers, smart boards or even cellphones. This tool also allows for the teacher to select multiple students at a time and is based on game mechanics. For example; teachers can enable level-ups, badges and achievements to unlock leader boards, other avatars and in-class games.

Classdojo also allows instructors to develop a specific list of behaviors (positive & negative) to track. It is customizable and comes with options such as smartphones or tablets that can be used as a remote.

  1. What a great find! The link provided a lot of information and I will be sharing this with educators that I know. I like how the app can increase the student centered approach and connect the parents and teachers in a new format that allows both to interact! Thanks for sharing.
