ClassDojo....Classroom Management ApplicationSince I teach in a computer lab setting I like to reward my students with a little free time on the computers. I was racking my brain trying to come up with ways to better keep track of my students behavior, so that I can reward them. I thought about having a marble jar for each class, since I am going to have 4 keyboarding classes, 2 computer apps classes, and 2 social studies classes I decided that was way too many marbles. I might even lose my marbles if I tried that approach.
This summer I attended a webinar that introduced a classroom management application called ClassDojo. I think this application will be the answer to my dilemma. I can set up all of my classes via my computer which only took a few minutes. I will then be able to reward positive points to my students or add negative points for behavior issues.
You may be wondering "What is ClassDojo?"
ClassDojo is a tool that helps teachers boost classroom engagement and improve student behavior quickly and easily, with just one click! It also lets teachers communicate behavior data with parents and students. Best of all, it’s completely free!
Behavior management finally made positive
• Award feedback points for specific behaviors,
learning habits, and accomplishments in class
• Everything is logged in realtime - with just one click
I will be able to use this application via my phono, iPad, or computer. When little Jonny just will not stay on task I can record it easily, instantly, and have a report for his parents.
