The days of digging through your child’s backpack to make sure you haven’t missed a wayward note, newsletter, or homework sheet are over. Class Dojo, an innovative classroom connection platform has elevated the traditional note home from the teacher to new levels.
Class Dojo is more than just an app that facilitates communication, creating community between parents, teachers and students. It is a powerful platform for creating a positive culture within classrooms and schools. Not only can parents use Class Dojo to stay informed about upcoming classroom activities and assignments, it can actually help them stay in tune with their child’s daily life at school.
Teachers can use the program to quickly send out class wide or individual bulletins letting parents know what is happening in the classroom. The teacher can also snap and send out pictures of classroom activities, allowing parents to feel more a part of their child’s day.
These updates and bulletins in turn foster communication within families. With Class Dojo, you no longer need to ask your child what they did in school, only to have him reply, “I don’t remember.” Rather you can ask them how they enjoyed planting seeds in science class or which problem was the easiest on their surprise math quiz.
The program also encourages students to work hard and meet their classroom goals. A letter grade doesn’t always show a parent everything that is going on in their child’s academic career. With a quick push of a button, Class Dojo lets teachers immediately track and notify parents when their child is on task, showing leadership or working hard. This gives parents the information they need to praise and encourage their child for school related performance that doesn’t show up on a traditional progress report.
Class Dojo is easy to use and can be accessed on any handheld device, phone, or computer making it a very approachable communication tool for parents and teachers. It has the ability to translate teacher and parent messages into 35 different languages, making it a must have communication platform for classrooms that are rich in diversity. Two in three schools in America are using Class Dojo and with the company’s promise that it will always be free to use, that number should only increase.
