Classroom Support


Teachers, wanted to have eyes over the entire classroom without having to tire yourself out? 
Well, here's a free online tool for you!

Introducing... CLASS DOJO!


Class Dojo is a free online program that allows teachers to easily control the work environment in a classroom during work periods.

How does it work? It's simple.

Below is a picture of an example class under the monitoring of their teacher. 

Each student gets their own avatar.

The green, notification-like icon means that the student has been rewarded for being on task, hard working, helping others, etc.
If a student is not doing what he or she should be doing, the teacher can give them a red mark, for either being off task, wasting time, bad attitude, etc.
This makes grading attitudes in class much easier as the red and green marks easily remind the teacher about the students' behavior.




The Class Dojo app is available for download on the app store, all you need is an account.

Here is the official video that introduces Class Dojo

Class Dojo can be opened on a tablet device, such as an iPad, being easily carried, allowing the teacher to walk around the classroom freely, and spectate the work process of students more accurately.

Besides monitoring the class, Class Dojo also allows students to create their own learning portfolios to document their learning progress.
