ClassDojo: The New Solution to Classroom Behavior Management

The action of a teacher in his or her classroom has twice the impact on the achievement of the students as do school polices related to staff collegiality, curriculum, assessment, and community involvement. Accordingly, one of the most important roles of a teacher is to manage his or her classroom effectively. It is vital that there is clear balance between a teacher’s actions that reward acceptable behavior in classroom and those that provide consequences for unacceptable behaviors.

In today’s technological world, you don’t have to look too far for some of the tools that can help you achieve such a balance and manage your classroom effectively. One of the top programs that’s currently used by many educationists is the ClassDojo app. Launched in August 2011, the program is currently used by 90 percent of the K-8 schools in the US and more than 180 countries globally.

In its basic form, the program enhances seamless communication between teachers, students, and parents. It allows teachers to share notes, pictures, events, and classroom related information with students and parents.

Using the app is easy and straightforward. Teachers set up classes, and every class has specific or unique avatars assigned to each student. The teacher has the ability to reward points (which are referred to as dojos) for positive or negative behaviors. Points can be awarded to an individual or to multiple/groups of students.

The app comes with a pre-loaded list of behaviors to choose from. A teacher can also create his or her own list of behaviors. Once a feedback is given, the students get them instantaneously through a distinctive sound that’s generated when their respective avatars are clicked. Lastly, the app can be used with virtually all devices—whether it is your laptop, desktop, or Smartphone.

Talk Fusion: Make The World Your Own

It takes a truly great person leading a truly great company in order for real change to occur in this world today. That person is Bob Reina, the founder and creator of Talk Fusion since 2007. He has seen a lot happen in the tech world since then, and he has stayed up to date with it. Because he has stayed up to date with it, he has never fallen behind and he has never allowed the company to move in a backwards direction. It is just the opposite in fact. The company is moving in a positive direction all of the time.

 

This was proven in 2016 when they won two big awards from the Technology Marketing Corporation As described in this article, they are seen as a media giant. This means that when they give out awards to a company, it really carries a lot of attention with it. It raises a lot of eyebrows in a positive way. It forces people to stand up and pay attention and say to themselves, “Hmm, this company is really onto something.” The truth of the matter is Bob Reina has been onto something since he started the company. He knows the true American dream is for people to own and run their own company.

 

People, for the most part, are inherently good people, and they want to be with their families and live a life that is true to them. As is often said, this is a life that shows off their true colors and their true side. There is nothing about it that is for show. It can be very difficult having to show up to a job every day that someone hates and have to put on a mask as if they enjoy it. They don’t enjoy it and it is getting harder and harder to hide it. It also carries with it health risks.

 

With Talk Fusion, those days are a thing of the past. Thanks to Talk Fusion’s video newsletters, video conferences, and video chats, the world is there for them to make it their own.
