So with traditional schools starting up the new school year soon, what better topic to look at then classroom management. With all the focus on PBIS (positive behavior) these days and all the rewards, a technological solution could not be far behind. And now you see it–Class Dojo. Class Dojo is a website that allows a teacher a FREE space to add their students, then track their behavior. You can use a tablet or even your phone–any device connected to the internet.
In the program you can use the default criteria or mix and match with your own. For instance, you can give points to students who come in on time. You can reward creativity. You can remove points for disruptions. And the idea is that you keep the scores up on an LCD projector so everyone can always see. My wife has been using this and she does agree that students do get motivated with seeing their points up on the screen. All about that immediate feedback.
