We are surrounded with negativity every day and everywhere; adults talking about children that shows no manners and are not properly disciplined. Do you as a teacher agree and complain about it, or are you going to do something about this so called "problem".
Research shows effectiveness in positive classroom management / - encouragement. Why not start today in your class, and what better way than an electronic platform: ClassDojo! This is a brilliant tool, because it is so accessible and user friendly. Yess- even you can try it out!
ClassDojo’s mission is to reinvent classrooms by bringing teachers, students and parents closer together. Teachers use ClassDojo as a communication platform to encourage students, and get parents engaged too.
ClassDojo is a behaviour management tool for the classroom. Each student has a profile – complete with their own avatar – to which teachers can assign positive and negative points (or 'dojos') throughout the lesson or anytime during the day.
The classrooms becomes a positive place - students work towards a goal and the class becomes a team! Its also important to acknowledge students strengths and ClassDojo makes it able to give individual acknowledgement. Students feel good about themselves and it will reflect on their work and attitude. Students parents' also have access to their childrens profile, so just maybe the students will think twice about doing something in class.
