Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

ClassDojo is an app that improves the efficiency and availability of communication in school classrooms. It forges a stronger bond between the parents, students, and teachers by allowing them to communicate more and in an easy and fun way. The app is available for use on smartphones, computers and tablets so it can be used anywhere conveniently. It is a way for parents to keep up with how their student is performing socially, academically, and behaviorally. The teacher has the ability to assign behaviors to the students based on various activities throughout the day. These activities are attached to points, and this point system makes the students more eager to perform well. Many teachers give out rewards when the class has accumulated enough points. The students are also able to customize the avatar that is inside the ClassDojo app, which they love doing.

The instant messaging feature in ClassDojo allows the teachers to contact the parents during the day about something that is urgent and needs attention. The parents also have the ability to contact the teacher, which comes in handy when they are running late or otherwise need to notify the teacher about something. This is much easier than email communication. ClassDojo has also been a great way in which teachers are able to save time. They no longer have to record class activities on the board or write them down. They can easily be recorded in the ClassDojo app with just a couple taps. Since the app is available or smartphones, this can be done at any time while they are on the go. ClassDojo has also found a way to encourage parents to become more involved with their students schooling. They are able to observe how they are performing and make sure everything is going okay for them.
