ClassDojo is a great tool that has come out to help streamline the communication between parents and the teacher about their student. It allows easy access by a simple click of the button for the teacher to share and update students progress with the parents. In turn, the parents have the same option to message or question the teacher as well.
The app is easily available online and can even be downloaded for any smartphone or tablet (Apple or Android). If you don’t have access to a smartphone it can be viewed on any browser with access to the internet as well.
The previous process normally left the communication process a little less readily available. It was more time consuming for the teacher to regularly update the progress for a student at their computer for each student on a regular basis using email and making the process far less frequent. This has lead the teacher to contact the parents or guardians far less frequently and often only when there were behavioral issues or during the normal parent/teacher conferences.
The advantage of this system is that it puts the parents and teachers in a quick direct contact. The teacher can easily, with the click of a button, update the parents on the student, snap a picture of the student(s) working on projects, advise of any good or bad behaviors, reminders and much more. This also allows the teacher to use the ClassDojo app to not only send pictures but also send a video of the students to share what the activities are for the day. This helps the parents feel more involved with the student when inquiring about their day.
The ClassDojo has revolutionized the communication process allowing the teacher to focus more on teaching and keep the parents up-to-date on the progress of their child. If you would like more information please check out the app online.
