What is ClassDojo?
ClassDojo is a digital sharing platform that allows teachers to document the day in class and share it with their family through a web browser so that almost any device can access the content – from electricity Simple smart phone to laptop. As long as there is a browser, the photos and videos are viewable.

ClassDojo’s messaging service is another big attraction as it allows parents and teachers to communicate through photo and video commentary, as well as direct messaging. The translation service offering over 35 languages is a great tool as it allows teachers to enter text in their native language, asking all parents and guardians to read their text.
ClassDojo allows teachers to work with remote classrooms, including providing activities for students, solving classroom assignments, and sharing lessons. Students can earn behavior-based Dojo scores, allowing teachers to use the app to promote student positive behavior.
Features of ClassDojo
ClassDojo is a very easy to use platform, with the teachers page divided into three parts: Classroom, Class Story, and Messages .
The first, Classroom , allows teachers to keep track of class and individual student grades, and at the same time generate reports. Teachers can go into the analysis here, view attendance reports or class behavior data. They can then filter the results by time and see any results in the data spreadsheet.
Second, Class Story , allows teachers to post photos, videos and messages so parents and guardians see what’s going on in class.
Messaging allows teachers to communicate directly with the entire classroom, individual students and parents. They are sent as email or messages in the app. Parents can decide how they want to be contacted.
The family is accessible through the website or the iOS and Android app. They can also view data containing the child’s behavioral metrics displayed over time, as well as Class Story , along with interaction via Messages. Parents can also view multiple student accounts, ideal for families with multiple children in the same school.
Students can access through the website, view their profile and see their points earned or lost. Although students may view their own progress over time, there is no access to other students because the competitive element is not emphasized here.
