ClassDojo is fast becoming commonplace in many classrooms across the United States and has led to the excitement of many parents and teachers across the nation. This app allows parents, teachers and students to interact during the school day like they have never been able to before aside from the parent actually sitting and observing in their child’s class. Many parents are just too busy to do this. Most parents work and some even work multiple jobs just to get by. They would love to know more about what their child is doing in the classroom at school, but they just don’t have the time.
With the addition of Student Stories ClassDojo has added a gem to its app that allows kids to post pictures or videos to their digital portfolio that the parents can look at any time. This may be a report the child did at school or a project or just a picture of them writing and working on something. The teacher may also video your child reciting a poem in class or reading from a book. These are things that parents cherish and can help make them feel more involved in their child’s education and also feel more present.
Teachers find that the more parents are involved in their children’s schoolwork and the more interaction involved between teacher and parent that the child is able to do better in school and actually learn more. Having this interaction is priceless to parents who are never able to make the parent/teacher conferences due to time constraints for work. Being able to go along on a field trip can now be made possible digitally by the use of this app also and allow parents a chance to see what the child is experiencing.
The ClassDojo app also contains an announcement section so that parents will be up to date on all events coming up in the future and can make the necessary arrangements in advance to attend if possible. Like never before, parents now have the ability to feel part of the classroom and feel more involved in their child’s learning experience with this app.
