ClassDojo is an app used by teachers, students, and parents to communicate with one another. It also offers learning opportunities to students, such as teaching empathy and how to remain calm in any situation. This is a free app but ClassDojo also offers Beyond School which is a paid app. Beyond School provides content and activities that teach things to children outside of the classroom. The app has animated videos with “monsters” that keep children engaged. Some of the videos teach yoga-like movements that help children become mindful. Other tutorials encourage children to share their feelings out loud in their classrooms.
Students learn how to appropriately share what they are feeling. Most parents feel disconnected from their child’s classroom. Jobs, grocery shopping, and other tasks mean they often don’t know what their child is doing at school. ClassDojo helps parents become more engaged because they can connect with their child’s teacher by texting, audio, and video. Since this app translates into over 30 languages, all parents can engage with their child’s teacher. This app is used in over 90% of K-8 schools in America. It is also used in more than 180 other countries. More than 15 million children have benefitted from its learning activities and lessons. Read More.
