Class Dojo is a completely free tool that makes managing classroom behavior easy and fun! If you have used it before, they recently made some great improvements. Teachers need to create a free account,
enter student names and customize behavior expectations before using with their class. Dojo assigns an avatar to each student that will be displayed next to their name and behavior points. Class Dojo can be controled from a computer by accessing the website,
from an iPad, iPod or iPhone by downloading the app
, or on an android device
. Teachers award students positive or negative points based on behavior.
Class Dojo encourages students to monitor their behavior and receive immediate feedback, when they access their own Dojo account
. Dojo's "Report" feature allows teachers to easily track individual and whole class behavior, while providing usable data. Teachers can easily email student behavior reports to parents with the "Share Report" feature. Teachers will also enjoy the random student selection tool and ability to immediately provide feedback based upon participation.
This tool made difficult behavior situations in my classroom manageable, and changed the classroom culture. I found that students were more aware, and loved seeing the positive feedback. Give it a try!
