Pros: Class Dojo is like a teacher's digital classroom management assistant! There's lots to love!

- First, it's free. Who doesn't like free?

- Next, it's extremely user-friendly. Within 15 minutes you can set-up and learn to navigate the features and layout. In just 5 more minutes, you can roll it out to your classroom. Teacher's are already lacking time, and the simplicity of this platform is wonderful.

- It's versatile! You can use it systematically as an everyday part of your lesson - managing and tracking behavior and learning data or you can use it for a much less intensive purpose like tracking time, adding audio cues for your students, keeping a scoreboard during a game, etc.

- Parents can link with their students to learn more. This creates a paperless communication system between the student and home.

- They've recently added a digital portfolio piece for students. I'm still new and exploring, but this looks to be a powerful addition that students/teachers could use for creating and sharing assignments (reducing paper). It seems to also have built-in features (activities), too. Excited to learn more!

- Last but not least, I suppose my favorite, yet simple, reason I love ClassDojo is that it just reminds me to be positive. I can focus on the positive I see in students and reward and reinforce their positive behavior.

Cons: This is not a con to ClassDojo, but just an observation - ClassDojo will not solve all of your classroom management issues. It is not a quick, easy fix, so don't view it that way. You have to carefully consider usage if you want this to be a main ingredient in your classroom. In that train of thought, it could cause students to act even more negatively because they're now able to gain a bigger audience and receive more attention. Once again, this is not a ClassDojo problem, I just want future users to be aware.

Overall: Positively rewarding and motivating students

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: Classdojo helps me communicate more effectively with parents that I don't see often, and even the ones I do! It's set up like a social media site, making it easy and accessible to all parents. Via the app or the website, they can private message me. When this happens it will give me a notification on my phone, for exame "Joe will be arriving late today due to a doctor's appointment", and gives me the option to private message them as well.

Classdojo also allows me to leave messages on the main board about our day, or what the students are working on, which all the parents can view. The program keeps track of who's viewed what and gives the parent the option to like the post.

I had the parents sign a photo waver in the beginning and I am now able to post pictures of their child's day. Whether it's doing word work, or just being creative during art, I'm able to post a picture of their child doing something in class, which the parents wouldn't normally have access to.

There is also a daily points system for each child that is only accessible to that child's parent to give them an idea of how they behaved. I have chosen not to use this option myself, as I have young, special needs kids. This feature is simple to use and gives options for the points the children earn.

The best thing about Classdojo, in my opinion, is the ease of use. It's easy to use and keeps the parents informed of daily or weekly news, such as what happened, or what the kids were learning that day.

Cons: Once I printed out invitations for the class at the beginning of the year it was difficult to find where to print out new invitations for the two new students I got later in the year. Eventually I just sent the parents a link to accept via their email, which worked as well.

Overall: Classdojo helps my kids' parents feel connected to our class in spite of everyone's busy scheduals, which has opened up lines of communication that wouldn't have had the chance to develop as easily otherwise. Classdojo has made my life, and theirs, much more hassle free. I love Classdojo, and so do the parents!

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.

Pros: I love the connection to parents and the portfolios for students to use. This is an amazing app for teachers. I love the positive behavior system. It has the consequence system built in too, but is so focused on the positive and keeps parents connected! I love the messaging system to communicate with parents as well as the storyboard to post pictures with parents.

Cons: I did not like the notifications for the portfolio being removed from access on the app after approval. They were on the app after approval in the story, so you could go and like and comment on them after approving them. You can no longer do this. I also do no like that customer support did not communicate with me after contacting them about this problem. I use this feature daily and it's now a struggle to use. Someone posted they dealt with the inquiry. They did not. I posted dissatisfied and reposted a question and still have not received help. Not sure what caused the change with this, usually customer service in the past has been great.

Overall: I have loved class dojo and used it for 7 years now! It gets better every year! I'd recommend it and do to my colleagues!

Pros: Free! This is the best software to connect parents and teachers. Teachers already spend a lot of their own money on their classroom, so what's great about ClassDojo is their promise that ClassDojo will always stay free to teachers. It's easy to setup and can be customized for the individual teacher and class. Plus they continue to add awesome features.

Cons: When I first started using this software I was teaching overseas where English was not the first language. Allow the icons were very useful, it would have been helpful to have more customization of the behavior icons and students icons so that my students would have better understood when I added points to their character (all the girls wanted pink in their character but there was only so many pink characters). ClassDojo has added the ability to upload your own character but as a teacher I wouldn't have had time to upload the characters needed for my 7 different classes of 15-20 students.

Overall: This is an engaging platform that listens to teachers and implements solutions to help technology address needs that teachers have had for years. Not only does it help break down barriers between parents and teachers so that both are on the same page about what is happening in the classroom. They have also added a toolkit with options like random student selector and group maker. These are not essential to the ClassDojo platform, but it adds great value to the teacher who have already spent the time uploading their class information into this system. There is a lot of software out there that is supposed to help teachers, but this is one of the most comprehensive software packages I've seen--and it's FREE!

Pros: While meeting my son's teacher she informed of this app. I was told it was a form of communication between she and I and to see what they do during the day while in class. I went through the app and there was not much to it, I could see pictures of daily class duties. I could leave a comment on posts and could see an alert when another parent liked or added a comment to the same post. I would leave rep messages when my phone was off or to change my son's transportation home from bus to car or vice versa. This function was helpful as long as she was in class or near her phone. One time I left her a message and she didn't check it and respond until two days later. I could see his daily progress, whether his color changed for bad behavior.

Cons: I had no problems with the app's functions. I wish it had mini games or some sort of activities for the kids to complete, but it was OK. It served up to its purpose, which was a way to see what your child does during class and communicate with the teacher.

Pros: Class Dojo is a versatile platform that makes communication from teachers to parents and caregivers easy and efficient. As a parent user, I love Class Dojo for the quick updates I see from teachers throughout the day or week, as they frequently post pictures of what is happening in the classroom. Only those with an access code can see the updates. Teachers can easily communicate with the whole cohort of parents, as well as individually with parents; I receive opted to receive updates every time grades are entered (notifications can be turned off), and there is also a way to send and receive individual messages with any of the student's teachers. If there are multiple children in the family, all of their reports, teachers, pictures and classes can be listed under one account. Class Dojo is a one-stop shop for a parent or caregiver who wants to keep up with what is happening with their student.

Cons: Honestly, I haven't found anything lacking for my purposes with this app.

Overall: Overall, my experience with Class Dojo has been excellent. I highly recommend it to anyone who's school system utilizes it, as it makes communication with busy teachers seamless and trackable. I also appreciate being able to look back at pictures, records, and past communication, all in one place. Teachers have used this platform to communicate class announcements, requests and updates; as a parent, I have used it to send individual messages to teachers and to keep up with grades. Class Dojo makes it easy to be in the loop.

Pros: This is a great product that I switch in and out of through out the year. You walk around with your phone or iPad and you can quickly award or penalize students. In a matter of a click or two. It really is easy to use and gives a great edge to classroom management. I have seen teachers have their data always displayed on their smart board to show where kids are. I personally have it opened on my computer so when I do reward or penalize the sound that goes with each is put over the speakers in my room.

Cons: I like Dojo for what it started as. Like most products it seems to be trying to be more than it was intended to be. It is trying to be an all in one connection to parents and lessons etc. I hope it stays simple as it tries to be bigger.

Overall: Great experience. It is easy to use, and easy for students to understand.

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: The Dojo point reward ringtone! Staying in touch with the parents! The helpful activity suggestions! Synchronization from mobile to laptop and desktop with a login! The tracking and recording both positive and negative behaviors I really like, and students know that parents can be notified not only by phone, but instantaneously by Class Dojo messenger! Love this software!

Cons: Would be nice if a seating chart was available, especially when I sub because learning names is a little challenging. Would also be nice to see an integration with the students where the students can log in and see private messages from the teacher instead of being pointed out in front of the class - which sometimes encourages negative behavior.

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.

Pros: Before I discovered Dojo I would interact with teachers via email or their personal cell phone which I found very invasive to them I love how dojo is easily accessible on mobile devices my daughter's teachers have their phones readily available and they are constantly using it to let me know how my daughter is doing in class the bonus points structure has allowed me to reward my daughter for good grades and positive feedback from her teachers the ability for her teacher to post photos and messages to the entire class makes communication extremely great

Cons: I'm not sure if it's just my daughter's teachers but I believe that Dojo can be used to create a much better classroom forum for all parents to be able to communicate information to one another not a big deal and it may be possible we just are not using

Overall: Dojo has been an amazing program with my daughter's education I would recommend it to any parent school or learning

Pros: I have direct contact with my kids' teachers and can message them if I need something. Teachers are able to easily message all of their students' parents and fill them in on the daily/weekly activities. The Dojo points have been a huge motivator for my son to perform better in the classroom and get excited about school!

Cons: The messaging was confusing at first. I didn't realize that when I sent a message to the teacher it goes directly to her and not all of the parents. The way it's set up, the teacher can send a message to the whole class and then each parent can respond directly to the teacher. That wasn't clear initially. All of your contact is in one chain. I also wish you could download pictures that the teacher posts!

Overall: I've really enjoyed using Dojo and found that it's given my immediate access to my sons' teachers. I feel more informed about what's going on in their classrooms and it's also served as a motivator for them to work harder!

Pros: My classroom loves ClassDojo. It's incredible to be able to reward positive behavior and provide consequences for negative behavior by adding or taking away points. It's very easy to communicate with students' parents through Dojo as well which saves me a lot of time from emailing parents individually. My students really enjoy creating their own Dojo monster avatar to represent them. It's easy to add and detract points right from my phone as I circulate around 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: 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.

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.

Class Dojo has helped connect my daily classroom happening to my students' parents at home.

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 my daughter's teacher and I are able to communicate without any issues. She is able to post pictures that only my husband and I can see. Also, she is able to give or take away points for my daughter depending on her behavior that day in class. My daughter enjoys looking at the app at the end of the day to see what her teacher had to say about her day.

Cons: I wish that we were able to communicate with the other parents so that if the teacher was having a class party or we needed to reach out about fundraisers etc, we could have a group chat going. I wouldn't say this is a con as it is designed more for the teachers and parent to communicate but it would be a very neat feature to add!

Overall: I absolutely love ClassDojo and hope that my daughter's teachers continue to use this!

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: My oldest is 5 yrs old so I'm still a new mom, and when I say I love Class Dojo!!!!! I was so scared when my son started school but when the teacher started sending me pictures and messages about how his day is going set my mind at ease. It is a great way to keep in contact with the teacher, you can also send the teacher personal messages. The best thing since slice bread.

Cons: There is nothing I dislike about this software.

Pros: I transferred my 5 year old to a new school and his teacher told me to get this app for daily updates and to communicate with her anytime. The best thing is it was free. You can see daily class activities /photos /videos the teacher posted. I left messages for her when no working phone was available. I asked for homework tips on assignments that weren't clear. Updates concerning my child's progress, behavior, test scores, homework were posted daily. Parents can post comments under photos and respond to each other. My child's previous school didn't use this app, they should have.

Cons: I found the app to be very useful, it let me see his daily activities as if I were there. I had no problems with the app at all.

Reports can easily go out to parents so they can see how their child is doing in school. It's all around a really great addition to any classroom.

Cons: I like everything about this program so there is nothing I can critique.

Pros: As a parent, I love the easy connection this software offers me to my child's classroom.

Cons: Of course, the amount of information gleaned from Class Dojo is dependent on the teacher's use of the tool. Some educators make better use of it than others. I find, particularly, the "points" feature to be a bit tiresome. It's great to see when your child gets awarded points, but the fact that these points often get overlooked by the educator can leave you feeling concerned about student behavior when there are no awarded points.

Overall: I feel like Class Dojo is a game-changer in parent-teacher communication. I'm sure it will continue to develop with time to better suit teacher's needs. I appreciate the ability to quickly message a teacher without having to deal with email or cell phones (which can feel too personal, or go too long unanswered).

Pros: In a nutshell it's an entry level social media application that can help modify behaviors through rewards. It's the perfect platform to teach our children digital citizenship. We can control the content posted and show students how to properly interact through social media. Though I don't believe the program was intended or marketed in such a manner, I believe that is it's greatest strength. At face value, students can earn points for positive behavior and lose points for negative behavior which may be used later as a pizza or ice cream party(example). Parents are also included in Class Dojo, so they get real time updates as well.

Cons: Parents have one more thing to join, one more app to install, and one more thing to check.

I cannot thank you enough for how this has positively impacted me as a teacher.

It's a wonderful FREE tool for teachers that is a wonderful tool for so many uses in the classroom.

Pros: ClassDoJo provides an easy way to keep parents in the loop with what is going on in class. It's user friendly for instructors, students, and parents alike.

Cons: Lack of Third-party support. This causes a lot of back-and-forth between systems, if other learning management systems are used in the classroom as well.

Overall: In our class, we use Schoology as our core method for distributing assignments, grading, and occasionally parent communication. After using ClassDojo and Schoology together for a while, we've found that ClassDojo's point system is better for providing quick feedback to parents and is much more user-friendly. The issue is, due to using Schoology for everything else, it became troublesome and more complicated using the two separate systems and ended up reverting back to using solely Schoology.

Pros: ClassDojo provides teachers with a visually-friendly, student-focused tool that helps them document classroom management. Students enjoy it. The best part about the software tool is that the information documented can be shared with students and families, adding to the school-to-home partnership while also creating incentives for students. We have found it to be a very easy application to implement into any classroom!

Cons: The software is somewhat limited in terms of functionality. ClassDojo continues to add features, though, so I have been pleased with their development team. The larger the class the harder it is to navigate on an iPad, though this has been improved with the most recent software releases.

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.

Pros: I like how fast and easy it is. Class DoJo makes tracking behavior data easy. Parents also like being able to monitor their child's behavior daily!

Cons: There isn't much about the app I don't like. Sometimes all of the choices for behaviors can be distracting.

Pros: Ability to communicate with parents and educators on the go. I can post and have interaction with parents immediately. Doesn't get lost with the million other things I send out or receive.

Cons: I don't like the negative points that are allowed through the product for the child. No parent wants to open an app have see points that have been taken away for behavior. IMO this is a different conversation.

Pros: I love how easy it is to share what is happening in the classroom at any given time with the students parents and families through pictures or videos. This app also allows you to message parents about their children and give Dojo points as rewards for various things.

Cons: I dislike how easily you can completely erase someones Dojo account on accident.

Overall: I use Dojo all day at work and I love it!

Pros: I like that teachers can customize the icons representing their students and that they can send pictures of things that are happening in the classroom to the parents. Parents really appreciate seeing their kids and knowing what is going on in the classroom.

Cons: Class Dojo is pretty easy to use, but can be challenging for a teacher who is not used to using technology throughout the day.

I used Dojo as part of group work in school. It was easy to use after I played with the program.

Pros: It was easy to share ideas with other classmates and have group input to conversations. I like the conversational way it flowed. Easy to access.

Cons: There was some learning curve for me. I am an older student and it took me awhile to figure some of the features out. I just started asking other classmates how to use the features and that helped.

Overall: Helped me complete class requirements at college.

Pros: As a parent I like this tool, its a great tool to interact with the teachers and know the progress or activities happening in my son's class. My son loves this tool. My son's class teachers are really active and they do leave a group messages to remind things which really helps us to remind if I missed something. We can see kids reports there which is cool I guess. The dashboard is pretty simple and easy to understand.

Cons: No concerns or complaints as of now. I like this tool and would recommend others to try it.

Pros: This software is engaging for kids. They will be motivated by the really cute monsters (I allow them to customize the monsters by turning in reward certificates!) You can include parents in on the fun and make great home to class connections.

Cons: It is heavily primary age focused. It is perfect for first to fifth, but by seventh grade they may not be as motivated.

Pros: I really love this app for my classroom at the daycare I work in. The children love keep track of their Dojo points and it helps when trying to redirect their children knowing that their parents are connected to the app and have immediate access to their points and seeing why and if they lost points. The feature that also allows us to take pictures of the class and sheare them with the parents is a very good feature.

Cons: The only thing I did not particularly like was the set up of the classrooms and how you calculated who was there and who was not on a day to day basis. If children are marked absent it is a little difficult to add children back to the classroom.

I used to use this product after it being strongly recommended by another teacher.

Pros: Classdojo was super easy to use, fairly, intuitive, and for what its worth a great tool to communicate within the class/school community. It is very helpful in terms of giving timely feedback within or outside of the classroom.

Cons: I think the culture in general of a school or classroom often affect whether or not a technology is worth their time. 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

Pros: I love how this makes classroom management more fun & how it lets students be in charge of their own behavior. It lets them visually see how they are doing. They love to hear and see their points. When parents are on board this is a great way for them to keep up with their child's behavior.

Cons: It may not work in a special needs or small group environment.

Overall: If it is used for a large group, general education classroom it is beneficial. Maybe have a different setting for special needs classrooms.

Pros: This software is a great way to help students see their progress toward behavioral and academic goals. You can load this on a computer, tablet, or phone, and update it as you walk around helping students. You can take attendance, mark down participation and positive/negative actions, and award special badges to students. It's a great motivator and cute too! You can also assign a responsible student to help mark down participation or attendance for you since the UI is simple and clean.

Cons: This software does not work on students above 6th grade, in my experience. The cutesy graphics are not palatable and students aren't motivated as much. Otherwise it's a great option for teachers to track all types of things for each student.

Pros: I had never heard of ClassDojo until my daughter's teacher introduced me to it. The teacher uses ClassDojo to have contact with us parents, and to share news and updates on our child's progress in the classroom. I like the feature that the teacher can send a mass message to all the parents (and even send us pictures), but also I am able to have a one-on-one conversation with the teacher through the app as well. It's fun to see how my child participated throughout the day, and to see what the kids are up to while in the classroom. ClassDojo makes it easy and fun.

Cons: Personally, I'd like the app to have a function so that I can privately message a parent through the app.
