Great Tool for Entire School Staff

It has helped behavior improve in my classroom tremendously. Students know that if I give or take a point, their teacher knows immediately. It's also a great way to communicate easily with parents. Most parents have a mobile phone and they tend to check their phones frequently. It is faster than email.

PROS

I like that students/classes can be shared with other teachers. If a student does well in Art or has an issue in Music, that teacher can click on Dojo and either give or take away Dojo points from the student. You don't have to wait until the student returns to the classroom and try to find time to talk to the teacher about the issue. It is super quick and easy to use. Bring your ClassDojo up on a computer, iPad, cell phone, etc. and have it open and ready for use. When you need to give or add points, you can do so immediately. If I give a point to a student in my room, the teacher is automatically notified on her device with the point popping up on the student's icon. It's a great way to communicate not only between classrooms regarding shared students, but also with parents that sign up. It includes an email feature with parents that is super handy.

CONS

Sometimes it is a little tricky to set up the sharing of a classroom with other teachers. It would be nice to have more of a step by step set of directions to go along with Class Dojo. The directions are included, but it would be helpful if they were more concise and step by step and addressed each area.

Communication and classroom management

ClassDojo has been such an easy and simple software to use. I truly don’t think I had a bad experience.

PROS

I feel like I love the ease and structure of messaging with parents. Do you have the option to post on a class story or send individual messages to parents that may be more important.

CONS

The only thing I would change about the software is allowing more points to be given then just five points at a time.

Reasons for switching to ClassDojo

I made the switch after trying one year with each class dojo and class tag. Class dojo is so much more elementary friendly.

The Best System.

My overall experience is great it was an app that i never knew i needed until i gave it chance and i like it. I love seeing the praises and the goof notes that my child is having.

PROS

What I most like about Class Dojo is that I can see everything and I can get daily updates about what is going on. I love that and I can realt time conversation or jsut a littel quick reach out if that what is what i need at the moment.

CONS

There is never a dull moment I never have to complain or worry about anyrthing going wrong.

Great way to stay in the know with your childrens Teacher!

My overall experience with ClassDojo has been great. I have no complaints.

PROS

I love that this is a convenient want to communicate with my childrens teacher if i need to get a message to her or them. I also love that I can scroll through the feed and see any pictures the teachers has posted of activities that the class has been doing recently.

CONS

The only thing that I dislike about ClassDojo is that as a parent, we're required to use this app to communicate with the teacher, but not all features are available with the free account. I think all features should be readily available if we're required to use the app.
