Pros: I like that students/classes can be shared with other teachers. If a student does well in Art or has an issue in Music, that teacher can click on Dojo and either give or take away Dojo points from the student. You don't have to wait until the student returns to the classroom and try to find time to talk to the teacher about the issue. It is super quick and easy to use. Bring your ClassDojo up on a computer, iPad, cell phone, etc. and have it open and ready for use. When you need to give or add points, you can do so immediately. If I give a point to a student in my room, the teacher is automatically notified on her device with the point popping up on the student's icon. It's a great way to communicate not only between classrooms regarding shared students, but also with parents that sign up. It includes an email feature with parents that is super handy.

Cons: Sometimes it is a little tricky to set up the sharing of a classroom with other teachers. It would be nice to have more of a step by step set of directions to go along with Class Dojo. The directions are included, but it would be helpful if they were more concise and step by step and addressed each area.

Overall: It has helped behavior improve in my classroom tremendously. Students know that if I give or take a point, their teacher knows immediately. It's also a great way to communicate easily with parents. Most parents have a mobile phone and they tend to check their phones frequently. It is faster than email.

Pros: I can message teachers/parents and get an immediate response. I send and receive notifications about school events and activities. Teachers can post pictures of the students directly to parents when they are working on school activities. It's great to "see" what is going on in the classroom. The Dojo points is a great way to keep track of good behavior and behavior that needs work. No more sending notes home that you home the parent/teacher will see and read. You know they are getting the message with Class Dojo. The kids love to watch their Dojo points add up to earn rewards. It is not fun to see them lose points for bad behavior, but this helps them learn there are consequences to their actions.

Cons: As a parent, I cannot see their Dojo points. I see how they earn the points and how many points each behavior is worth. So many times my kids say, "Look at how many points I have now!" They are so proud of their work, but I cannot see it :(

Overall: It's a great way to communicate with teachers, parents and school administration. I get quick responses to questions, notifications on events, even important messages when school is closing for snow. I enjoy seeing my children in pictures that teachers take and post. Being able to check in on my child's behavior is important, good and bad. Class Dojo lets me see all these things and keeps me in direct communication with the school.

Pros: I know this tool is generally marketed for elementary classes and teachers, but I heard about it and thought I'd give it a try. I loved it! And the students (7th graders) responded well. So what are my favorite features? First, it's easy to use and set up in a class. You can literally roll it out to your class in 3 minutes. There is not a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into it. Second, it provides an instantaneous and digital method for positive reinforcement. Teaching middle schools requires reinforcement- ClassDojo helps me keep track of that and keeps me conscious of the fact that I need to reward positive behavior and effort. Third, students really get engaged. They like to be rewarded and compete, so I also use it as a scoreboard during activities or long-term projects. Last, I never made use of this feature, but there is a parent connection to, which creates a buy-in and awareness at home and keeps parents in the loop. I'm a big fan of using ClassDojo in a positive manner - not shaming students - but highlighting the good things I saw in the classroom.

Perfect for Classroom Management!!

Pros: I have used this software for over three years and it has continue to help me each year as a teacher. Even being a teacher who lives abroad, students still respond well to ClassDojo. I love that I can use my phone to give points through the app and the response on the website. So even while I'm teaching, I can easily pull my phone out and give or take Dojo points. I also like the connections I can make with parents through ClassDojo.

Cons: One thing I would like to see changed about this service is having the groups and individuals on the same page and not have to change between screens. I would also like to continue playing the music while i. A different windo on ClassDojo. They could create a small music player on the corner of the screen so it doesn't go away when you need to do other things.

Pros: I liked using ClassDojo in my classroom as well as for piano lessons. In both cases, I only awarded positive points, never negative - per my teaching philosophy. In my classroom, students received points for participating in conversations, being helpful, as well as respectful and responsible. For piano lessons, I gave points for practicing, bringing their necessary materials, and playing with the correct style required for the piece. In both cases I was very pleased with ClassDojo.

Cons: When using ClassDojo it highlights behavior - positive or negative. Depending on how you use it, it can make students stand out in a negative way.

Overall: ClassDojo was an effective way to track behavior and give incentives to continue.

Pros: I loved class dojo when I taught in traditional classroom and I still love it with online teaching with VIPKID. It is helpful to track student behavior. I use it in my online classroom to keep my feedback and info about each student.

Cons: When I was in the traditional classroom, I would have liked being able to share my class roster and behaviors with other teachers. When my students went to PE or Art class, the teacher could pull my students up without logging into my account to change their behavior as needed. Just a suggestion.

Overall: Class Dojo is very easy to use and learn. It is fun for students and appealing to the user as well. I enjoy using it daily in my online classroom and I liked having it in my brick and mortar class too.

Pros: If you are like me, and I know some of you out there are, you struggle with the idea of giving candy and physical treats as rewards in the classroom on several levels. One, they are so costly! When I have felt like I had no other option I have caved and bought candy to try and reinforce behaviors, but the candy is gone by Wednesday, and there is no lasting impact. Enter Class Dojo...this is like digital candy. You and parents can keep up with behaviors in a way that really fits in well with our 21st century learners.

Cons: The only real issue I had with this was that even though I was on my phone using the app to track behaviors, I really didn't like setting the example of having my phone in my hand in front of students. Using it on my ipad somehow looked more professional.

This is my go-to program for classroom management!

Pros: I love that I could connect parents to the classroom through pictures and dojo points - I also love that the program adds more features all the time that are easily utilized - made by people who understand teachers and the classroom.

Cons: There isn't much I don't like about Class Dojo. I think there is a lot to explore in the program and it is easily adjustable for the different age groups you might work with.

Overall: This was a quick and easy tool to utilize for classroom management and parent connection. You computer, ipad, and phone are linked across the board and kids get connected as well!

Pros: Ease of use, quick response from customer service, continually growing and improving

Cons: Parents can't communicate with one another.

Overall: I have used Class Dojo for two years now and continually tell my colleagues about it. It is very user friendly, the staff promptly responds to emails, they take teachers comments and ideas and make it a reality.
Class Dojo gives teachers the ability to get in touch with parents, creates a "social media" atmosphere, allows students to post (with teacher approval to the class story).
I think this is a spectacular software and the cost now is free!

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a great software, but needs to be used with care so that it doesn't adversely affect student behavior.

ClassDojo has really changed how I incentivize things in my classroom.

Pros: I love how creative the idea of this software is. I have used it with students ages 10 - 15. It truly is impressive how students engage in the characters and own their actions. It is such a good software to put a positive spin on behavior. Sure, you can negatively reinforce by subtracting points, but students are motivated by the system.

Cons: I honestly love everything about ClassDojo. It does everything I want it to do. It would be neat if students had a way to access their account and see their details without me displaying it for them.

Pros: I love being able to take pictures of what my students are doing and share them instantly with their parents. Receiving parent feedback and helping them feel like more of a part of the classroom is a win-win.

Cons: I wish the point system was easier for the students to access in upper elementary. It is still a great system, but they are ready for some new features by 5th grade.

Overall: One of the main benefits is quick, easy access to my parents that links them straight to our classroom. The kids love that their parents see what is happening day-to-day.

Pros: I love that parents can see exactly what their child is doing in class through the information that I put in. I also love that it allows parents to communicate directly with me through the app. The students earn or lose points based on their behaviors in class and parents can see the behaviors as well.

Cons: What I like least about the software is that it is a pain to add all the students into. If it would sync with Google Classroom to load our students in for us that would make it 100 times better.

Pros: It's so convenient to have this tool to communicate with a teacher instead of having to send and receive texts. Sometimes you don't want to give out your cell number.

Pros: I love being able to see what my child is doing at school via pictures and posts as they are happening! I also love being able to get an immediate report about his daily behavior and productivity. It keeps me in the loop, gives us talking points after school, and helps me know how to support him! It's also a great way for his teacher to give us a quick reminder about upcoming events and notices.

Cons: I wish it were possible to save pictures that the teachers post. This is really the only thing I've found that I'd prefer to be changed.

Overall: The overall communication between the school and I, and also between my son and I has increased immensely.

Pros: As a parent, I love the updates and information that the teachers can easily share through this program. It is a great way to follow both school age children as well as preschool children. Administrators can communicate with the entire class or single parents and each family can communicate directly with the teacher without a public forum. It is easy to install and also emails when a message is received.

Cons: There aren't many cons with this program from a family standpoint. I have been told that photos sent are hard or unable to be downloaded/forwarded from parent to another.

Overall: I am able to keep up with my children and their teachers daily increasing both communication and parent involvement!

Pros: Class Dojo is a great tool for teachers to provide students and parents with real-time feedback related to behavior and academic work. The research on game theory has shown that immediate feedback is a motivator for students and helps them to self-regulate behaviors and mental energy.

Cons: Some parents feel it is invasive because it calls students out for inappropriate behaviors. This perspective could possibly be minimized if there were an initial video to share with parents, showing the research supporting the use of this type of tool.

Overall: It has provided quite a few of our teachers with a way to keep parents informed and connected throughout their child's school day.

Absolutely love this tool! And so do my students and parents!

Ultimately, while I think Classdojo is a great fit for many educators in a variety of settings, for me, it just didn't seem like it was ultimately very helpful given my style of teaching and feedback as well as the age of my students. I think this program would be more helpful in the middle and elementary school level.

Overall: Great class communication

Great way to inform parents!

Pros: I love the ease of access for parents to see how their students are behaving. It is easy and a great way for teachers to communicate and keep parents informed. It opens up dialogue and improves the home/school relationship.

Cons: Students often complain about their monsters and would like to customize and create their own. I wish there were also more grouping and graphing options.

Overall: The ease of access to parent communication. I love communicating with parents and allowing them to see how well their students are doing. It is an asset to our staff!

Pros: graphics and simplicity. The menu options and features are limited - so it's simple to start using immediately.

Cons: Functionality limited - used for sending messages, pictures and videos to all or some parents and reporting on behavior - and parents messaging back to teachers . Usefulness is dependent on both users and customers discussing and understanding what features will be used ( and how to interpret input). Mostly used for messaging.

Overall: Communications to/from parents/teacher

Easy to use, unlimited communication with the teacher.

Pros: Unlimited communication with the teacher. You don't miss anything. You know every move your snowflake makes.

Cons: UMLIMITED COMMUNICATION WITH THE TEACHER. This app is the thing of nightmares. Every single time I blink I am getting notified about what my kid is doing and I care, I do, I just don't care that much. I really don't. Send me updates every now and then - but every 30 minutes makes me want to blow my brains out.

Pros: It is user friendly. It is a very positive way to help with classroom management. It is an effective way to communicate with parents.

Cons: None at this time

Overall: It is very user friendly. Class Dojo offers videos to help you get started. It took me only minutes to get my class set up. It sets up the parent letters for you , all you have do is print them out.

Recommendations to other buyers: The students in class really enjoy it.

Pros: My 4th grader's class uses Dojo and we love it. It's so much easier to stay in contact with her teachers. We love being able to keep up with her behavior, progress, and announcements.

Cons: No cons at all! As parents, it's no cost to us and makes our lives so much easier. We've used other similar apps and this one is our fave.

Pros: The user friendly interface for both teachers and students. Students love to see their mojo monsoters. Also the ability for them to customise their own monsters really brings ownership to theirs.

Cons: The lack of ability to merge classes between a whole school - for example different teachers who teach the same class cannot benefit from the whole system

It's great to keep track of how your child's day has been going.

Pros: The visibility of gaining points for individuals or for groups was very motivating to my students, ages 6-9.

Cons: I didn't like the idea of deincentivizing them by removing points from their emoji's but that was the way the system was set up.

Pros: An easy way to track a student's behavior in the classroom. Cute graphics.

Cons: When a student is marked down for a bad choice the red graphic in their circle of behavior is a little too large -should be more in proportion to the good behavior.

Overall: Class Dojo lets me see how my student is behaving in the classroom on a daily basis. My son loves his Dojo "monster" and likes to see how is chart is filled in with green for good behavior. Checking in with Dojo lets me know if there are any behavior issues that may need addressing with my student long before the teacher may decide to write a note home. Teachers would find this software useful for tracking behavior in the classroom.

Pros: This software allows us to communicate with our children's teachers quickly and effectively, without have to give out personal phone numbers. It has also been a great way for the teacher to send pictures of our children during various events.

Cons: I wish there was a way to link parents to the same account instead of getting separate messages individually from the teacher.
