"Dojo."

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Dojo es que podemos competir con el resto de alumnos e ir mejorando el avatar que nos representa a base de responder las preguntas que nos hace el profesor de forma correcta y teniendo una actitud colaborativa con el resto de la clase y compañeros.

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta es el aspecto de los personajes, demasiado infantil. Debería tener mejores imágenes.

A veces he tenido problemas de sincronización cuando cambio de dispositivo eléctrico al conectarme a clase, pero finalmente se soluciona.

En casos de clases con alumnos mayores de edad no ocurre, pero con menores de edad la aplicación conecta con los padres y desvela información privada a ellos que puede traer consecuencias en casa.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Class Dojo te anima a hacer las cosas bien en el aula para ir progresando a tu avatar al mismo tiempo que progresas en el aprendizaje tu como estudiante.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ClassDojo nos anima a estudiar, lo hace más divertido, mejora las comunicaciones con el profesor y tenemos de forma centralizada un espacio en el que poder compartir algunos recursos.

La competencia generada contra otros alumnos es sana y divertida.

"ClassDojo para profes, padres y alumnos."

What do you like best?

Lo mejor es que por fin tengo organizadas mis clases de una manera divertida para los estudiantes, que nos permite estar en constante comunicación en tiempo real con los padres, siempre que tengan acceso a la red y un dispositivo electrónico, claro esta.

Los alumnos pueden ver el progreso de su avatar que como si de la playstation se tratara, progresará en sus atributos si ellos estudian, hacen la tarea, se portran bien en clase y responden las cuestiones del profesor.

Esto crea un clima en clase de interés por la asignatura con el fin de mejorar al avatar.

Para los padres esta muy bien, porque si algún estudiante falta a clase ese día, se le avisará al padre, madre o tutor al instante.

También cuenta con un apartado de mensajeria instantánea para que tanto padres como alumnos pregunten al profesor directamente.

La interfaz es muy intuitiva y es muy fácil crear las clases en pocos click, así como realizar su mantenimiento en el día a día.

Tiene coste 0 de impllantación y uso.

Podemos mandar fotos a los padres de las actividades que tienen que realizar en casa.

What do you dislike?

Necesita conexión a internet. Si algún dia, por lo que sea no puedes tenerla, no podrás guardar la evolución.

Algunos padres se han quejado de que ahora se sienten esclavos del móvil, para tener más controlados a sus hijos, pero yo eso no lo veo un problema realmente de la aplicación.

Los chicos se quejan de que ahora se sienten más controlados. Hay que intentar de hacer verles que la aplicación está para divertirse aprendiendo y no para agobiarlos.

Con alumnos a partir de dieciséis años puede parecer algo simple y ridículo el sistema de avatares.

Necesitarás el cañon de luz. Si no lo tienes en tu aula, no puiedes usar esta aplicación. Es imprescindible que los chicos vean sus avances.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Experimenta unos días con tus estudiantes de una clase, antes de implementar el sistema de golpe en todos tus cursos, si ves que funciona, adelante.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nos ha facilitado la comunicación con padres y alumnos, a la m,ayoría de los alumnos les está encantando, así que de momento solo hemos visto progresos con la organización y clima del aula.

"Classdojo. Diviértete aprendiendo."

What do you like best?

Classdojo es una aplicacion gratuita, que no requiere instalación en los equipos de un centro educativo. Funciona en línea y es accesible desde el equipo del profesor. Nos va apermitir:

- Obtener un reporte académico de forma individualizada por cada uno de nuestros alumnos.

- Fomentar la participación de los alumnos en clase con un sistema de puntos semejante al de los videojuegos de rol, con lo que fomentamos su interés por la asignatura e incetivamos el desarrollo de su personaje virtual en base al aprendizaje de la asignatura. Siempre haciendo destacar el compañerismo por encima de la competitivad entre alumnos.

-COntrolar la asistencia de los estudiantes a clase e informar a los padres de sus ausencias.

- Comunicación constante con los padres para que sepan si sus hijos han logrado positivos en clase o han obtenido un negativo cada día. Es decir, envió a sus emails o si tienen la aplicaicón instyalada en el smartphone, un completo reporte de su hijo en tiempo real.

- ES gratis!!

What do you dislike?

- Si un día se va la conexión en el centro te quedas sin plataforma.

- Si un día falla el proyector del aula, te quedas sin plataforma.

- Aunque se trata de evitar la competitividad, es importante trabajar recordarlo a los chicos constantemente, aquellos cuyo personajes van perdiendo ventaja con respecto a otros, puede desanimarles.

- En los ciclos de alumnos con menores edades funcionma muy bien, para los más mayores en ocasiones puede resultarle para algunos un poco infatil.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Puedes entrar mañana al aula sorprendiendo y captando interés de tus estudiantes con esta herramienta gratuita. Te ahorraras llamadas de padres preguntando por sus hijos pues podrás enviar informes de los logros conseguidos por sus hijos en tiempo real así como de sus faltas de asistencia.

He dicho ya que es gratis.?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ha mejorado el comporrtamiento de los alumnos en el aula. Ha mejorado la comunicación con los padres, ellos están muy contentos, tanto alumnos como padres con esta aplicacicón.

No tiene ningún tipo de coste, con lo cuál no hay que realizar ninguna inversión económica y no hay excusa para no implantarla en clase.

"Fantastic Classroom Management Tool!"

What do you like best?

It has every tool I need in the classroom!

What do you dislike?

The app is glitchy at times, it has difficulties in transfering from ipad to my laptop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Experiment with it before implementing it into your classroom, make sure that your students take part in deciding what they should be earning points for and losing points for to build a class community!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ClassDojo was exactly what I needed as a first year teacher. It allowed me to establish a consistent behavior system that used rewards and consequences, provided incentive for my students to reach success in a subtle way, provided mini lessons in life skills, gave me useful tools to use in creating groups, providing directions, giving a greeting message, working music, the list goes on and on. Most importantly, however, ClassDojo was the absolutely perfect tool in keeping parents aware of what was going on in the classroom. Parents in my room used this to message me, monitor their student's behavior, and even to see work that we were doing in the classroom so that they could have extra assistance at home with homework! It truly was an all in one tool that I will happily continue to use in future years.

"Class Dojo for Management and Communication"

What do you like best?

Class Dojo allows you to set up an individual class. You can reward students with points for good behavior and take points away for poor behavior. There are set behaviors and point values, and you can edit and add your own. It also has a system that you can set up to message paremts individually or as a group.

What do you dislike?

Parents must sign up, and not everyone does. Not everyone likes online communication. It can be subjective, so I always try to keep a device near me so that I can assign points consistently. Some students like being able to login and track, but other students do not. Students are always asking about their points because they like to see what they are doing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parents like communication, so this is a nice way for me to send out a message and let parents know what is going on in the classroom. They like the consistent updates and communication .

"Class dojo - great classroom tool"

What do you like best?

What I enjoy most with class dojo as a parent and as a teacher is the user friendly platform. It gives me the opportunity to send a message out to parents, display how the student is showing responsibility in school and most importantly the students LOVE it. It makes sounds for a job well done motivating them to make better choices. Lastly, you can share your class with other teachers who also share time with the students.

What do you dislike?

Class dojo although you can share. Message and see who read it, it does not allow the parent to reply all. When setting up a list of items needed to donate to the class this would be a great option to have. The avatars also always look happy even if the student is in red or negative points. I wish the facial expressions would change along with the students points earned.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great classroom management tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classroom management and classroom communication with parents.

"Great for behavior tracking!"

What do you like best?

I love that you can track behaviors, good and bad, on Class Dojo. It allows you to assign points to behaviors: for instance, if you want to focus on a specific behavior like being kind to others, you can make it worth 3 points instead of 1.

What do you dislike?

We had a teacher leave last year who sent out a message to her entire parents list who communicated in an unprofessional manner. There is no oversight available since the individual accounts are created by the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great tool. It allows you to remember all the behaviors of a student, not just the bad ones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Behavior tracking, behavior management, the ability to message all parents at once or individually, posting pictures of students that only parents of the class can see.

"Closing the communication gap between school and home."

What do you like best?

I have two accounts for this app one I have is a parent and I use it to keep track of my son's behaviors at school I also use it to communicate with the teacher and to see how his academics are going.

I also have a second account set up with the teacher and I love that I am able to give live feedback to them throughout the day and they didn't of vacation straight on their phone additionally I like the fact that they can see how they are doing and they put it up in the smart board for them to be able to have immediate feedback to their behavior

What do you dislike?

The part I dislike is that they have limited options for avatar choices that each student can pick as their picture. I wish that we could upload pictures for each student to have more of a buy-in to program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Must try for your classroom

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for classroom management and parents teacher communication.

"Communication and Behavior"

What do you like best?

The feature that I like best is the ability to communicate with parents. In the school that I work in many parents have their phones shut off month after month but they still have the ability to connect to wifi. When I call them to speak about their students there are many parents that do not answer. I am able to message them on dojo and they quickly respond.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that I do not have the option to set up multiple classes within one teacher login. I teach 2 round of mathematics and I would like to display only the students in their class group.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ClassDojo is a combination of so many other tools that I use to use. ClassDojos allows me to communicate with parents. It allows me to monitor students behaviors. It collects the data of the students behaviors for me. It allows me to place timers on the board. It will randomize groups for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a school we have been able to share students and award points to students doing well. My principal and I have discussed School-Wide Positive Behavior Plans and ClassDojo would allow us to do this.

"Great Classroom Management Tool"

What do you like best?

Classdojo is a great classroom management tool for elementary students. It's fun for kids because they can pick their own little avatar and see their points add up. The parents can connect to it as well and see their child's progress.

What do you dislike?

I have had a few issues with Classdojo. When I got married and changed my name, and then later moved to a different school, I had to contact their customer support to get this updated on my class dojo. I couldn't connect to a different school with my account or change my email address. The customer support was prompt but I would like to have done that myself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool for elementary. I don't think that middle schoolers or high schoolers would buy into this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In education, this tool is great for specials teachers to reward students for great behavior in their classes as well. Students that are doing a great job in music can get dojo points and it contributes to an overall school community.

"My students and I both love ClassDojo!"

What do you like best?

At first, I thought ClassDojo would be too "kiddish" for my seventh graders, but I was proven incorrect. They absolutely love it. It takes classroom management and puts it in the hands of the kids by giving them a wide range of options such as designing their own avatar, keeping track of their points, and being able to monitor not only their individual behaviors and actions but their peers' as well. I also love that parents can access how their children are doing, and I love the new newsletter/story feature (haven't used yet, but am planning on it).

What do you dislike?

To be honest, I don't dislike anything. I think everything is very straightforward on ClassDojo, and it makes the information easily accessible and understandable to parents, students, and teachers alike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're having some issues with classroom management or just want to create a positive learning environment with the help of "friendly competition," this platform is a great way to do that. I thought it would be too "kiddish" for my seventh graders, but from what I can see from my own experience and my colleagues' experiences is that middle schoolers love this! They like keeping track of their progress, especially in comparison to their classmates. It is important to have incentives (e.g., if you reach x-amount of points by the end of the week, then you get y). It is also helpful to have parents be a part of the process so that there is more buy-in all around.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started using this to manage classroom behavior with one section of students a couple years ago. Nothing was working with them, but this helped a lot. They were more invested into having a positive learning community because of this platform.

"Good communication tool"

What do you like best?

I really like that the app allows me to communicate with students and parents from one location. I also like the functionality that allows me to divide my students into groups randomly. Also, the app is rather easy to use for all key users - teachers, parents, and students. Often times, parents hear one thing from students and another thing from the teachers. With this consistent messaging functionality, the parents & students are receiving the same message and there's no "lost in translation".

What do you dislike?

It seems like just one more app from where the students will receive notifications. They already get emails & Google Classroom announcements - they prefer to get all their info from one source. Similarly, it's another app that the students & parents have to download. I hear complaints already that students and parents alike already have to use a multitude of apps to stay in touch with their teacher & class. I f Class Dojo were to increase visibility and work to incorporate functionality from other commonly used education apps such as Google Classroom, teachers will be more likely to use this program exclusively to communicate to their parents & students instead of using multiple sources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check with parents before adding them to the app .... many don't appreciate unsolicited emails.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This gives me a chance to quickly communicate with parents & students. Often, the students share a different story with the parents about what's going on in class . This way, everyone gets the same message.

"Great Parent Communication Tool"

What do you like best?

ClassDojo is easy to use and it provides a forum for sharing important information, reminders, behavior data and pictures in an accessible way. The program looks and runs similar to Facebook, but is completely private; only parents and colleagues that you have granted access can see the information being posted. To make it even more convenient, ClassDojo has an app for smartphones.

What do you dislike?

It can take some time figuring out how to make the points system work for you, but that comes with any new program being implemented. There aren't too many negative aspects to this program, unless parents do not have access to a computer or smartphone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just jump in and use it! It's very user-friendly and simple to figure out. Parents appreciate the ease of communication it provides, too!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parents feel more closely connected to the classroom, even if they cannot be at the school very often. They are able to see information and photos of class events on their computers or phones. Behavior data can also be communicated and tracked in real-time.

"Class Dojo for interventions"

What do you like best?

I like the lesson plans that are already put together within ClassDojo. It is so accessible and so easy to search for material that relates to specific concerns or activities for children and allows for maximum presentation with very little preparation necessary before delivery mental health services.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the connection quality and load time for the videos is unreliable, and if I am planning on using a video for a lesson and I only have 30 minutes to meet with the kids then it is hard to rely on something that may take too long to load or run properly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using ClassDojo with small groups and individual students during counseling to help educate them on functions of the brain and how that relates to learning and emotions and regulating our emotions. I have noticed that the children love watching the videos instead of always having me talk at them, so there have been added benefits of enjoyment and seemingly increased engagement.

"Excellent Communication Tool!"

What do you like best?

This program is super easy, it is immediate communication and a fantastic data collection tool. Because I can project it up on the wall, students enjoy watching if they have been "caught" being good and all students can see immediate notifications

What do you dislike?

I have not really found anything I dislike about ClassDojo. It is visually pleasing and TOO EASY to work with!

Recommendations to others considering the product

USE THIS PROGRAM! You will love it...your students will love it! It is fun and gives IMMEDIATE feedback to students and families! You can customize so many things on it! Truly a fun way to track students and communicate to parents and children themselves!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have become way more efficient as a team getting communication across with families about how their student is performing daily. Having ClassDojo has cut time out of our day having to keep up with paperwork and tracking of students. We have become more efficient with this tool!

"Fun classroom management for kids"

What do you like best?

What I like best about class dojo is that you can use it to manage your classroom. Some things I love are creating your own task for earning and for docking off points; I love that it creates a monster file for each of my students; others things like using the timer, taking attendance, earning team and class points and messaging. In addition, you can now communicate with parents through class dojo.

What do you dislike?

There isn’t anything that I dislike about class dojo at this time. I have been a user for a few years now and greatly appreciate that they have made great improvements such as adding videos, parent connect, accessibility on any device, and etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, I would highly recommend class dojo to others. Parents can even use it at home as a reward system too and not only in the classroom.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use class dojo as a behavior management system. It is used for positive reinforcements and rewards. The benefits I have realized with using this system is that my students loves it. It gives them an opportunity to earn individual, team and whole points. It helped turned those negative behaviors into positives or it helps in reminding students to use appropriate behavior. For example, a student who has a difficult time raising hand do respond, class dojo has helped me fix it by letting them earn a point when raise hand or even dock a point when not raising hand. It works with talking out of then too. Also, parents are able to check their child’s school day and see the reasons for earned or docked points. What I love best is also using the think pair share tool. I used this tool to build a better school climate with my students by posting up question or activity and having them think pair and share with each other and then do a share aloud. This helped in building closer relationship ebteeen evident sand teachers.

"Teacher for ClassDojo"

What do you like best?

So many great features. Free app for parents and teachers alike. Students can earn points based on criteria set by teacher or class. They can also lose points for various things. Other teachers and administrators can have access to student points and progress. Parents can see pictures, student stories, private messages, and student behavior reports. Privacy can be set by teacher.

What do you dislike?

There are few things I dislike about this program. One little thing I would like to be added is for the teacher to be able to control student avatars. Also it would be nice to set a theme or something to the main screen to personalize the screen more for each teacher and classroom.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Figure out something to do with points students earn either as a class or individually. I personally have combined Dojo with a minor classroom economy to teach money management skills as well as reward and incentivize for behaviors. Watch your privacy settings and what you allow parents to comment on. Student stories is a great resource if you have a way of managing what students can and cannot put on there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for communication with parents! From behavior to what we are doing in class that day to weekly announcements, the ease of communication is wonderful! It also holds students accountable.

"Great classroom management and communication tool"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and intuitive design, plus the ability to quickly communicate and share media content between teachers, students, and parents is a breeze. When using ClassDojo, it looks and feels like a social media platform - so it is feels familiar to most people who use it. The mobile and web versions integrate seamlessly, and the formatting between the two is very similar, which makes it easy to move between the two formats without getting disorientated at all.

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was a way to students/parents to create interact and create groups with each other.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It works. The ease of use of ClassDojo is a major benefit - especially in dealing with students and parents who have a wide range of technical abilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication with students/parents to ensure that important information is shared.

"The Absolute BEST Classroom Program"

What do you like best?

I will NEVER go through another school year without Class Dojo. There are SO many things I like about it - not even considering the classroom management assistance it was originally designed for. In fact, the part I like the best is the immediate and interconnection I have with my students' parents/guardians. With a quick text I can inform all of my parents of an event, assignment or test. Parents can text me back with questions, and I can set the hours in which I will respond. I love the Class Story Feature - sharing pictures and videos of what is happening in class with all the parents.

What do you dislike?

I wish that you didn't have to download the APP on your phone (as a parent) because many are limited on space. It would be nice to have a website-based availability in case they can't download.

Recommendations to others considering the product

USE IT! This is hands down one of the best tools I've ever used in my classroom. I will not do another year without Class Dojo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is the MAIN way I communicate with families. I can send private messages, pictures, questions, lists, signups, conference reminders, etc. all with the push of a button. Parents can message me back immediately, ask me questions, share news and reminders, etc. It really creates that open communication channel that meets the needs of my families now.

"Effective Classroom Management"

What do you like best?

I like that each student can be individually awarded points based on behavior rewards (points can also be taken away for negative behaviors). I like that there are different reasoning options to chose from on why they are earning extra points.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike much about the product. I wish there were a way to simultaneously give points to multiple students (in groups) without having to click on each one individually sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend for any classroom management issues. I also like that the information can be shared with parents right through the site as well!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ClassDojo works great to keep students accountable. You can have all of their names up on a projector and it allows each student to be in charge of their own score. I have realized that it keeps students wanting to have good behavior to be rewarded and diminishes negative behaviors because they want to keep accruing points.

"Great for classroom management"

What do you like best?

You can manage your students easily with great interface using class Dojo. Students and parents can check progress by signing in from home. It is very interactive. There are a lot of features that you can utilize like tracking assignments and instant messaging. I would like to take more advantage of these added features so that my class can have even better management.

What do you dislike?

It can be hard to manage the software while using the computer for other things like power points. This can be fixed by using Class Dojo on a smart phone or tablet instead of the main computer but then kids cannot see their points accumulate. I think that there is a feature that makes this easier but I have not tried it out yet. I would liek to get more involved in the additional features to manage my classroom and find a way to have parents be more involved int he produect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easily be able to switch from one interface to the next

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

" Class Dojo is Amazing!"

What do you like best?

I'm a school administrator and this year my school rolled out using Class Dojo in place of a previous behavior tracking color system chart for students. Students would previously start on "green" and the move up if they behaved or did something good in class, or moved down if they did not follow directions, etc. At the end of each day, the teacher would simply reset the clips on the color chart and that was that. There was really no way for the teacher to know how student behavior was changing throughout the day, let alone across the week, a month, etc. Class Dojo does exactly that- it tracks behavior of individual students for any period of time you choose.

What do you dislike?

Unless you project the Dojo page on the board for students to see, it can be hard for students to really understand how many points they received for positive and negative behaviors throughout the day. Most teachers also have to put the media volume up on their cell phone or laptops in order for students to hear the positive ding or the negative uh oh sounds. This also means that the teacher has to be glued to their laptop or phone to keep track of these student behaviors, which can become distracting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My school also runs a weekly report for behavior, as well as a monthly report. When students reach a specified goal at the end of the month, we celebrate with some fun activity. Dojo also allows my staff to reach out directly to parents from the app on their phone or the website on their computer during class, right there on the spot. Parents can message the teacher, receive class updates about homework, school events, or can view photos of their child working in the classroom. It allows the teacher a great deal of flexibility even with the most basic features of the program. There are lots of other advantages, such as character building videos, capabilities to allow student names to be randomly generated to help with equity with calling on students, etc.

"Class Dojo"

What do you like best?

This application is great for classroom management. Each student is given a character and points are assigned by the teacher. Parents are also able to log in and see how their student is doing in class. There is also an option to send messages to parents, which is convenient.

What do you dislike?

The application uses a lot of memory on my phone. I find that it is easier to use on my laptop. The company also sends out a lot of notifications and emails which can be annoying. There is an option to turn off push notifications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not install it on your phone, instead keep it in your work laptop/tablet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As stated before, this application is used in the classroom with students. It can also be used to make parent contact and send messages which is helpful. Students are also very engaged with this app. They like looking at and picking new monsters.

What do you like best?

Parents are able to reach me directly at any time of day. I am also able to post photos of classroom activities for parents, maintaining privacy but involving them in our classroom events.

What do you dislike?

Students struggle to log in occasionally. The application connects student and parent accounts, but students can't log in without parent confirmation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Encourage parent participation from the start. The app is really at its best when parents see the posts and send messages from the beginning.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parents, other teachers, and administrators are able to monitor the behavior and growth of students. I can create portfolios for student activities and award points for any positive behavior, allowing all students to shine.

"Classroom management at its finest!"

What do you like best?

I love that I can communicate with parents, manage behaviors, and upload work for parents to see all at my fingertips! My favorite part is the Teacher Toolbox that I can use the random generator, music, timer, and more! I also enjoy the Mojo series that teaches empathy, mindset, and many other valuable character traits.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the best tool for classroom management, parent communication, and electronic portfolios.

"Outstanding Classroom Management Tool"

What do you like best?

Parent communication via the app allows parents to know how their students are doing at anytime. For example, if a student did not turn in his or her homework for the day, as a teacher, I would give the student a negative point for no homework. The parent would immediately be able to see that the negative point was assigned for no homework. Also, using class dojo for classroom mangement was very powerful. There is sound aligned with negative or positive points. So, when students heard positive points being awarded, I could see more and more students engaging with the task. This was the same if students heard negative points being distributed.

What do you dislike?

I disliked nothing at all. ClassDojo is amazing!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely fully engage with the product and use it as your primary classroom management tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classroom management improved not only in my classroom, but in all classrooms who used in in the school building.

"Very Helpful "

What do you like best?

I like that I was able to communicate with my children's parents in a simple, quick and effective manner. It was great to be able to update them in real time with pictures and text and be able to answer their questions. It was also nice because if a child wasn't going to be in that day or was running late the parent could easily text me instead of having to call the center. It is a great tool that to be able to use to communicate with parents but not have to give out your private information nor the center having to buy a separate device to use. I was able to easily download the app and go from there.

What do you dislike?

It was hard to learn how to navigate it in the beginning. And then to explain it to parents on how to use. That was probably the most frustrating part. I had trouble finding parents and connecting them to our site. Sometimes I wouldn't get a notification that I had a message and it was time sensitive so that was frustrating. While I like being able to use the app and not have to buy a separate device, it is a little wary to be able to have my teachers use their cell phones to control the app. I do not like them having their phones out because they are working but with the app it is hard to catch them doing something they are not suppose to because they will just say they were using the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend using ClassDojo it is such a great tool to use, especially with preschool age and below. The parents have their minds put to rest because they can always check in with the teacher and their child in real time and get picture updates to see what is happening. I would say anyone that is thinking about it should just test it out, doesn't hurt to try it and see for yourself the amazing things that it can do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

An easier way to effectively communicate with out parents. And give them more current updates and answer questions in real time. It helped the parents feel at ease leaving them in our care, knowing that they could text us or receive a a photo from us throughout the day. It is cost friendly because we did not have to buy a separate device for all of our teachers to use, they could just download the app and be on their way. It also helps keep the professional boundary because neither party had to give out private information to be able to communicate on our devices.

"A great tool for the classroom"

What do you like best?

Easy to use in real time while teaching in the classroom. It offers immediate reinforcement of values/qualities that are being focussed on and is flexible so as to be changed and adjusted as necessary. I found that it was a great way to incorporate what was learned during character development lessons. All students, parents and teachers can work together using ClassDojo to guide student progress in the classroom while they are actually learning every day.

What do you dislike?

This product must be thoroughly explored and explained among parents and students to remain a positive tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, you will not waste your time. If you are looking for an effective, in-class, real-time solution for behaviour management, you will find ClassDojo fun and easy to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication. Dojo is a useful platform for giving feedback and receiving feedback from parents.

"Cute Class Management "

What do you like best?

I like the ability to quickly communicate student behavior with parents as well as share information on the fly. I appreciate being able to share photos of events like field trips that parents would not otherwise be able to see.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I cans subtract specific amounts of points if students want to “spend “ them for rewards. I wish it were more like a bank account type setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is good for elementary teachers; I tried it with sixth grade several years ago but they didn’t buy in. My fourth graders love it and so do their parents.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am cutting down on the Time it takes to communicate with each parent regularly. I can share much more information in much less time.

"ClassDojo - An Excellent Classroom Management Tool"

What do you like best?

ClassDojo is an excellent classroom management tool that is visually appealing and easy to follow for students and teachers. Students can easily earn and lose points throughout the day, and their daily total can be shared with parents at home. Students get to pick their own monster icon as well, which makes them feel more invested in and excited about the program.

What do you dislike?

Some teachers do not like to use the negative points and find it most valuable if students can only earn points, but never lose them, but the option is still nice to have. Honestly, there is nothing I dislike about ClassDojo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend that all teachers try ClassDojo if they are interested in a new and kid-friendly classroom management solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ClassDojo can be utilized school wide, meaning that when a student goes to a different teacher for art or music or special classes, they are still able to pull up their ClassDojo points, which builds school community and teacher collaboration.

"DOJO Changed my classroom"

What do you like best?

I really like how students are able to change their characters because it is a great incentive as a teacher. I also love that when given a positive or negative point, students can hear the sound it makes. As a teacher, I really like to look at the report when meeting with parents/students for conferences. I also like that I can post pictures and comments on there

What do you dislike?

I wish there was an easier way to give the majority of the students points at the same time in another way. I don't like having to click on each individual student.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a great tool to keep track of student behavior in the classroom as well communication with parents.

"Motivating Classroom Management Tool with Parent Involvement "

What do you like best?

When I moved to the middle school, I doubted that my students would be motivated by a product designed for "little kids." Yet, they really like it! They enjoy customizing their avatars and earning rewards for points.

What do you dislike?

I wish I could clear students' points without it subtracting from the class points. It would help me keep track of which students have already earned a reward but allow me to have their points contribute to the class-wide total.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out. It's free!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My students are motivated by earning rewards for points. After earning 50 points, they get a snack or free choice time (usually on their computers). I also do class-wide rewards (sum of the average of 60 points per student) with the opportunity to earn a party by earning four class-wide rewards. ClassDojo also has parent accounts that allow parents to monitor classroom behavior, as well as message me. I only minimally use the class story option, but it seems like it could be a great way of staying connected with parents for the day-to-day fun students are having.

"The ideal class tool"

What do you like best?

I love everything: the easy communication with parents, the Big Ideas lessons, the points system, the toolkit and now also the Student Portfolios. And it's all free.

Super client service too.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike. It is simply amazing. All teachers should use it in their class, as it really helps with class management. Parents love it too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to try it! Don't hesitate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication with parents and behaviour management in class. The students are more motivated and the parents better informed.

"Positive Behavior Management"

What do you like best?

I love that Class Dojo interests students from the range of K-5. If you move on to teach another grade, you aren't having to reinvent the wheel. All you really need to do is update your class list. My students loved Class Dojo.

What do you dislike?

My older students would have liked to be able to use their own picture instead of choose from a somewhat limited number of avatars. There is not a feature where students can load an image at this time. I would like to see that happen in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Class Dojo is free and will meet all of your needs for rewarding student behavior! You can link your account to your phone and tablet making it very accessible at all points during your day. I promise you'll never want to use your "Stoplight" behavior chart again. Try it out, you won't be disappointed!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking and monitoring student behavior is a difficult task to manage. Class Dojo takes the stress away by allowing me to reward positive behavior by tapping a icon on my interactive white board. This information is then communicated directly to parents once they have signed up for the app or login on their computer. Parents can then applaud their child when they return home or have a conversation with them about changes that need to be made. I also use Class Dojo to correspond with parents about their child's behavior because it allows me to refer to the day and time of the behavior occurrence within the website.

"Easy behavior management for the minimalist teacher. "

What do you like best?

Class Dojo is user friendly and very easy to operate. Set up time is very minimal and two way communication is available. The developers have cleaned the software significantly since its launch. Developers provide frequent updates for the product. Since using the software, I can't recall any major crashes. The software does not require it's user to know a lot of in depth information to operate it. It is quick, effective, and efficient. The software provides realtime information and is accessible throughout the day.

What do you dislike?

The model is very limited. Users at this time can't access the software offline. If a user doesn't have access to wifi or on a carrier network, Class Dojo doesn't update on its on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First the platform is easy to operate and shows a range of behavior/conduct over a period of time. Class Dojo increases communication between parents and educators. The software allows parents to directly message teachers and vice versa. It also embraces technologies. Everyone is always on there phone now. Class Dojo gives parents the opportunity to inquire on their child's progress throughout the door. Additionally, this software allows teachers to make students accountable for this actions- rewarding food behavior and penalizing students when they are off task. My son absolutely loves to see a list of acceptable behaviors his teacher recorded him doing throughout the day. In addition, if certain behaviors show up frequently as a parent I am able to address the behaviors at home. Most behaviors are covered in the software.

"Class Dojo is unnecessarily punitive"

What do you like best?

Class Dojo has an excellent interface and is well-designed to allow me to enter behavior data very quickly from all of my iDevices. It also facilitates seamless parent communication in real-time; I don't have to remember to email so-and-so's parent about an incident or missed assignment when I finally get a free minute.

What do you dislike?

The model itself is inherently flawed. I want my students to internalize good behavior, not be shamed into it. I also think that there are some privacy concerns here- you are accumulating a LOT of data on students in a very short amount of time. And it creates divides in the classroom in that it is much more effective for students whose parents subscribe than students whose parents don't.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The platform is excellent but the way the system is set up may not be philosophically in line with how you run your classroom.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think the main strength of this app is that it allows very efficient, accurate communication with parents. It also collects an enormous amount of behavior data on students that can be useful to track patterns and trends over time.

"Awesome positive reinforcer and parent communication tool"

What do you like best?

Kids love the avatars and sounds, we love the ease of use and low cost. Parents love the fact that they can know how their child is working and behaving at school and reinforce at home.

What do you dislike?

Cannot think of anything that we don't like - it's easy to use and the layout is awesome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it - there is nothing to lose! I even use it at home with my 6-year-old to keep track of chores, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy way to monitor classroom management, easy tool for new teachers to use, great ability to communicate with parents.

"Great motivational tool for early learners/adolescents"

What do you like best?

ClassDojo is a great tool if you're using it to reward good participation, listening skills, citizenship and other positive character attributes.

What do you dislike?

Apart from taking attendance and giving dojo coins (with the awesome sound effects), dojo isn't good for much else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I actually stopped using classdojo in my teaching practice because I teach upperclassmen and find the software to be too geared towards elementary/middle school aged learners. Our school does use it as a cool tool to share photos with one another when we perform public service or have interesting classroom or after-school activities or go on trips so I am more of a passive user, though I do share pictures with the school community (teaches, students, parents, admin).

"Class Dojo! The Behavior Management software you have been dreaming of..."

What do you like best?

Teachers have the flexibility to give points or take away points as they choose to! The other best feature is ClassDojo's easy interactive features that allow parents to receive immediate updates on their children's behavior and academic progress in classes.

What do you dislike?

My only wish is that the animated figures were differentiated to not be so juvenile for older students. Very difficult to find anything to critique. Wonderful product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My colleagues and I use ClassDojo in our 6th and 7th grade classrooms. One of my closest colleagues uses hers primarily as a way to keep parents informed of their children's behavior in class, and if they've handed in homework or not. I use mine to let the classes and students compete for points, in a friendly competitive fashion so that they can earn class and individual rewards.

"Class dojo Is a must"

What do you like best?

Provides a way for students to stay motivated to do well in school academically and through behavior

What do you dislike?

I’m not finding anything to dislike with this program. The only challenge I have faced is getting some of the parents to download and use the app

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Children are realizing the good and bad choices they have made because of class dojo. For example, you can use dojo points that allows the teacher to get points for good behavior and choices and deduct points for making bad choices. The children and parents can see daily points that have been given and taken away from the child throughout the day in our classroom we have a treasure box that the children can use their dojo points to buy small items.

"ClassDojo"

What do you like best?

Randomly choosing & grouping students, posting directions on the board

What do you dislike?

Differences between app & browser - sometimes I can’t do things on the phone app that I can on the browser and vice versa

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are multiple functions to use. Determine whether the function(s) you need are available. You can use the parts you need, and try out their functions without fully committing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can group students, choose students randomly, communicate with parents, post directions easily on the board, and track student behavior.

"Class Dojo"

What do you like best?

I love that I can give immediate feedback to my students in a fun and visual way. The parent communication feature is also great. I can send pictures, messages, and behavior feedback to parents all from one app on my phone.

What do you dislike?

There is honestly nothing that I dislike about ClassDojo. It would be nice if the students were able to select their own icon, but other than that ClassDojo is great!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used other apps to communicate with parents or to monitor classroom behavior, the awesome thing about ClassDojo is that you can do both from the same app. Plus it is easy to use and the children LOVE seeing their points add up each day.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parent communication about behavior and classroom happenings is so much easier!

"Amazing for Data Collection Tool for the Classroom!"

What do you like best?

This is a great tool for teachers who are working with struggling students and a way to improve classroom management. To be able to pick on certain things (raising hand, speaking out, etc) gives the user a way to understand a child's ability in the classroom setting or in the school. Good tool overall and would always recommend to other users! I also think it is great that we can get the parents involved in the sense we can give them access to see their child's progress or things they should be working on with their students.

What do you dislike?

I really love using classdojo, it just can be hard to adjust in the beginning especially if you are new, but they have tutorials online. It can be time consuming especially when you are in the classroom and with difficult children behaviors. I would advise not to use classdojo with all the student's name because it can become a negative data tool rather than positive. This can also be a hard tool if your school does not have the technology component. It is hard to carry around your laptop to add points. So make sure you can use your phone or can have access to an tablet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great tool and I would recommend using it in all schools to collect data!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A school is an actual business where we need to collect data. I think this is an overall great tool to understand what the needs of the students are as well as getting parents involved. This will also help with classroom management and to prepare behavioral charts if needed.

"Such an AMAZING way to Teach"

What do you like best?

This is the perfect way to keep a class focused on the positive. We use it in all of 4th grade to communicate behavior of classes throughout the day. Such a great way to track students' behavior and positive/negative moments throughout the day. It will even send home notes and ideas to parents.

What do you dislike?

Very little to dislike in this program. The interface could be a bit more user friendly, but overall it is amazing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say that any classroom teacher, especially in the K-8 range, would GREATLY benefit from this program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to show parents when and where a student is struggling. It is also a great tool to use since the students rotate to different classes in the day.

"Great Tool For Classroom Management"

What do you like best?

Class Dojo is a really great way to positively enforce expected behaviors in the classroom. I teach at a middle school and thought that it was sort of elementary. However, students in grades 6-8 are motivated by the monster like creatures. It is also a really nice way to communicate with parents about behavior concerns in the classroom. I also really enjoy the class story page.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a secondary feature that could be used in high schools. I see this tool as being a powerful way to motivate older students, if they made it look a little less elementary.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid to try it in a upper middle school classroom.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a great way to support positive behavior plans and communicate with parents and families on a regular basis. It's also an easy and effective way to give continuous feedback to students.

"Class Dojo - Management and Tracking Resource for Teachers"

What do you like best?

The student point tracking system is easy to use, project, connect with parents, and gives students real-time feedback for whatever you'd like to track. It may be geared towards younger students, but I've used it as a tool for high school classroom management at school where I didn't get any support outside of the classroom. My students responded to it really well, and I used it for an entire school year. Both the app and the desktop programs are easy to use, and the points are easily customizable. Best of all, it's free!

What do you dislike?

The icons are a little geared towards younger students, and I would like to see options for older students. It would be great if you could connect your roles with other classrooms as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a teacher using Class Dojo, I highly recommend the ClassDojo Mentor community on Facebook. It's very helpful and people have many creative ways for using this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Classroom management tool! It was extremely useful for tracking behavior in the classroom, or awarding points in a class economy type system.

"Works perfectly on Middle school"

What do you like best?

I love how the parents have a way to contact me and manage their child's conduct in class.

What do you dislike?

I wish the kids were able to add a profile pic and it be their avatar. That would give them allow them to be more active in class dojo (especially in the middle school grades).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please use it! Although it looks kiddy you can still use it with big kids in middle and high school for PBIS and positive reinforcement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to keep documented occurrences of student behavior, all of the teachers that the students interact with can access the same data, and parents no longer have wait until the end of the week to know that their child is having bad week and parental intervention is needed.

"Great for providing students with immediate incentives!"

What do you like best?

I like that students are immediately gratified by their good behavior with ClassDojo. Instead of having to wait for a reward, they get it immediately in the form of points. Also, students can collect their points to work towards a long term reward for their good behavior and productivity during class. Students can get points for a variety of different behaviors with this program. These are: Helping Others; On Task; Participating; Persistence; Team Work; and Hard Work. These categories make it easy to encourage students to complete their work with minimum distractions for the rest of the class.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that this program seems to appeal more to younger ages such as elementary school and possibly 6 or 7th grade as well. I'm not sure that it is entirely appropriate for high school. However, if I were an elementary school teacher than I would use this on a weekly basis!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please be aware that this is better suited for elementary school students rather than high school students.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This does not apply to me as I am a teacher in a high school.

"Data driven behavior management and communication tool"

What do you like best?

I love that I can customize the customize the behaviors that students can earn a positive or needs work dojo for. It is easy to create groups, give whole class dojos, and assign dojos to students who are not absent. It is a an easy way to communicate how a student's day went by looking at their weekly percentage or sending them a quick message. I can also see when a parent received my message. Students regularly ask me about their percentage. Dojos can be updated on the computer or using an app.

What do you dislike?

On the iPhone app I was not able to see student's percentages until recently, but it still requires several clicks which is something I check often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They also have fun little videos that have themes. I do not use the "student story" part of this app, however it looks like it would be fun for the kids.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it as a classroom management tool and way to communicate with parents. The less formal quick communication has helped build relationships with families. Students are motivated to make positive choices, monitor their percentage, and are aware of what behaviors caused them a negative dojo.
