Class Dojo is a company with a mission and a vision of community. The community is about teachers, parents and students all sharing what happens at school.
Building teams is the motivation behind Class Dojo. This new communications platform was designed by engineers and educators from around the world. It is supported and endorsed by investors and innovators and designers that are creating this positive addition to the classroom.
The majority of schools and classrooms around the United States are already on board with this great free program. It is being used in two out of three schools to assist teachers in tracking student progress and give positive encouragement for learning and participating in classroom activity. Even students who seem uninterested know that they can be rewarded for contributing and are more motivated to participate.
One of the best aspects of Class Dojo is that it allows the teacher to monitor student activity on assigned tasks while encouraging students to do their best to earn dojo points. The students have the potential to receive constant positive feedback for their developing skills. Parents can have their own account to access their students account. The can see active learning and skill development that goes beyond classroom academics.
Class Dojo is helping students become leaders among their peers.
Class Dojo is not confined to educators and families, but has a presence and a relationship with many familiar online entities. News and activities of Class Dojo can be seen on Google, Facebook and Twitter to name a few. Through Class Dojo teachers may apply for $100 matching funds to develop their classroom dream come true because of these relationships.
Teachers remark that Class Dojo is easy to use and motivating for students. The kids are excited to choose their own avatars for class. They are inspired when they hear the sounds that indicate “dojo points” have been awarded for contributions in the classroom. The site itself hosts contests to design new “monsters” to star in the video series and parents appreciate the snapshots of the day and seeing what their student is doing and contributing while in school.

By facilitating communication parents can be kept abreast of school activities, teachers can provide positive feedback and students can have ownership of their growth in skills like leadership and team work.
