Class Dojo- Managing Students' Behavior

Class Dojo is a site that I have known about for awhile, but it peaked my interest recently as I have heard many positive comments from teachers using it.  So I decided to investigate this online tool that is used to monitor daily student behaviors.  Here is what I really like about the Class Dojo website:

  • It is simple to set up.
  • Use the monster and critter icons for your students or upload your own pictures (such as real pics to make it easy for substitute teachers).
  • Leave it on your Smartboard and pull it up easily- teacher and student can quickly add positive or negative points for an individual student or the whole class.
  • Choose the exact behaviors you are tracking in your class.  Choose only to note positive behaviors if you wish.
  • You can also run Class Dojo from a mobile phone, iPad, or tablet computer.  So, as you are walking around the room or teaching, you can easily mark your students' behaviors.
  • A whole class and individual class report is generated as you end the class or daily session.  These reports can be emailed to parents.
I recommend that you replace your marble jars and clothespin clip charts with Class Dojo!
