Class Dojo, Year 2
This is the second year I've used class dojo in my room with great success. Just like last year, it's taken a little training to get the kids used to it. I used class dojo exactly twice this year until November arrived. It was the first week of school, and I used it during 1st and 2nd periods, then decided it was far too much hassle to have to stop what I was doing, pull up the class dojo tab, and add/ subtract points. I was updating my phone and it sent me some application updates with a suggested list of "things I might like." There was one for class dojo!!!!! I was thrilled. I downloaded the app to my phone, and I can update it from anywhere in my room, even if I don't have myself logged in on the computer. At the end of the class, I pull up everybody's points and the class summary so they can see how they did. My classes are competing for a pizza party right now, and many of them are positive peer pressuring their friends for the first time all school year. I love it, they love it. You should at least try it. It's free AND it's easy...what could it harm???
