ClassDojo is an active classroom platform management tool that helps teachers promote students’ behavior and also enable more efficient communication with the parents. ClassDojo makes it possible for teachers to create a profile for each student. Every student has an avatar that can be personalized by the teacher. The teacher then set standards based on the behavior of each student based on completion of homework, participation in class, and other tasks.
The app can easily be used in a smartphone, computer or a tablet. Every student then is awarded points based on their performance throughout the day. The points that each student get can be displayed on a board, but most importantly the teacher can use the points to generate a report and sent it to parents.
