With a quick iPad reading of a class QR code, students may now safely communicate with their parents about activities in the classroom. They may post pictures, text, and videos of their projects, thus keeping a digital portfolio of their work.
ClassDojo calls this new feature Student Story, and it should fit well with the already popular Class Story in which the teacher can do likewise to all parents who have signed up for the secure service.
As the ClassDojo mentor for Cecil Floyd Elementary and a teacher who is constantly on the lookout for user-friendly and meaningful tools for the our classroom, I can certainly appreciate the ethics of the ClassDojo app team. Behind the scenes is a team of people who are constantly searching for ways to support the education process. They not only lookout for their own app, but they look to include and promote the latest educational research and innovations. This team challenges its mentors and teachers around the world to always lean into the wind and push forward.
If you are an educator, whether your school subscribes to packaged discipline programs and positive behavior response systems, ClassDojo has a place in your classroom and your school.
