This app is amazing !!!!!!! When I am at home or at work and my daughter is at school and I am curious about how her day is going, all I have to do is open this app and look up her report for the day. Her teachers will mark her for either being really good, neutral, or disruptive, which allows me to know how my child’s school day is going. They do this throughout the entire day. The teachers will also post pictures of the class and what they are doing throughout the day which is always fun to see. This app also gives me the ability to communicate directly with her teacher, without having to send an email. Not only does it allow me to communicate with her teacher, it also gives me the ability to message anybody that is working with my child in the school. Whether it be a counselor, the nurse, the principal, anyone that works in the school, I am able to communicate with. This app was a complete game changer for me. My daughter is developmentally delayed and this app has literally given me so much peace of mind I don’t know what I would do without it. This has taken away so much stress that I have about wondering how my child is doing at school during the day and I’m very grateful for this app. I think it should be made available to every single school in the whole world. THANKS DOJO!!!!
I'm a first year teacher in a special education 5th grade class and the behavior system I was using just wasn't cutting it. It wasn't effective for me to cross the classroom and stop my lessons to give my students reinforcements. Now I keep class dojo connected to the smart board at all times. The tap their naps in the morning to clock in for attendance. I give them points and demerits that I designed according to my needs which play a positive or negative sound. If a student earns three points in one day I give them a ticket to the classroom store. If the class gets more then 30 points I give them a class reward. The students see where the stand when it comes to their individual behavior and can see the effect they have on the group. The records they keep make report cards a breeze when it comes to marking students behavior. Parents stay connected and send messages through the app. This is all just the features of the website! The app offers added bonuses when used in tandem. The toolkit is a lifesaver with so many amazing things that it would take all day to describe them. This app is worth it a thousand times over!
There have been 5 updates since I reported the loss of getting notifications on my iPhone 8 plus. I was told to reinstall the app despite this issue being recognized as a bug that needs fixing. It still has not been fixed and these vague release notes leave a lot to be desired. As for the app use, it's a mom's nightmare if you have special needs children. If you can not ask your child what happened at school this app will leave you even more baffled. Teachers are allowed to leave unexplained negative feedback. Yes it is teacher responsibility to use it fairly but I feel this app and it's setup makes poor communicating teachers even lazier. I am expected to write *them* notes that they do NOT respond to when they mark points off, cause simply telling me makes too much sense 🙄 So how about this- stop letting teachers just lazily leave negative feedback WITHOUT notes. It should REQUIRE a note. If my child isn't doing anything worth writing about it shouldnt warrant losing points either. Messages should have a priority setting because I am starting to think my child's teachers can't read the way they dodge messages. It's ridiculous and there should be more accountability built-in to it's use cause students are not the only bullies at school. Now we just have a bunch of lazy teachers content with bare minimum forms of communication. This app could require more of teachers, otherwise it's worsening communication and behavior problems.
I’ve used this app for 3 years now. As a parents I see a lot of room for improvement. 1. I am not notified via text and no way I have found to be notified- I am very busy and I don’t enjoy needing to go to yet 1 more app to look at my kids progress or homework etc. adds more work for me and not worth it. 2. It’s very elementary. As my son moved to upper elementary - they still use it but now there’s no progress on him- they find it’s too beneath the grade level which I agree on. 3. I like the anonymity other apps gives me and still allows me to communicate w other parents - like to remind them it’s the teacher bday etc. this app offer nothing like that. 4. I have to have the app! I have plenty of storage space now but some parents don’t! And I hear complaints often that they don’t have room for yet another app- other programs allows communication via text and no need for the app! They send sms! My kids are 3rd and 4th grade. This apps has potential to grow w the students yet it has not!! Please consider adding features for age progression. And I’m trying the at home feature- would have been great when my kids were younger but at their ages the monsters and points don’t mean near as much as the cool Games they could be playing. Over all- the younger the kid the better and only communication with teachers and no way to make a play date w a classmate even between students! Please consider adding features !
I love the most recent changes to the student accounts, especially the ease in switching for students now. I would like to see a more streamlined process of posting pictures and videos. Right now, they can take a picture or video, add a caption, talk over the picture explaining or draw on it. Once they click the little blue airplane, they have to select their name again (even tho they are already on their own account) and then click post. I think the airplane on the previous screen should suffice in posting it. If there were to be another screen, maybe just give the option of being able to post the same picture to another student account like before. Sometimes my students are partners and they shouldn’t have to take two separate pictures for their work. I also would like some sort of feature where I can toggle on a record keeping of who is posting. For example, I might want to have students post a picture or video of their center for the day- I’d love to see a quick easy way to filter who has and has not posted to their own account during that time frame. It would be so helpful, especially when I have some centers I give students two or more days to do. Just some ideas! Thanks.
