ClassDojo looks like a promising tool for teachers to help manage and track student behavior (positive and negative) and participation.
  • Teachers can use the classroom computer or any other internet-connected device (smartphone, table, i-device, etc.) 
  • The initial setup looks to be quite easy and there seems to be several ways you can customize it to work for your students in your classroom. 
  • There are some awfully cute little monster and critter icons that can be used for students or you can even upload actual student pictures, which would be a real help to substitute teachers! 
  • You even get to decide which types of behaviors you will track with ClassDojo.
  • Easily print or email behavior reports with a click of a button!
  • Want to get your students excited about participating in class? ClassDojo can be used with your data projector to show instant visual notifications for your students ("Well done Josh! +1 for teamwork!").

This video review shows some of the most helpful features of ClassDojo.

Want to learn more? Head over to ClassDojo and check it out. According to their site, you can sign up now for a FREE account. (I'm not sure how much longer it will be free, so you might want to grab an account now even if you don't want to use it right away.)

Don't forget to check with your campus principal before making significant changes to any behavior plans in your classroom or grade level!

Love class dojo! I have been using it for the last two weeks. The students love getting points and are in competition to see who can earn the most points by Friday, because they will get to pick a prize.
