ClassDojo Offers Mindfulness Training for the 2019 – 2020 School Year

ClassDojo is the nation’s premiere education app. It has been around since 2011 and is now commonly used in classrooms across the nation. One of the reasons why so many teachers like ClassDojo is because it provides them with practical methods for helping students to do well in class. The app’s mindfulness training program is a feature that also gives this benefit. 

Mindfulness training is a technique that gives students to control their mind, thoughts, energy and feelings. When a student is hyped up and headed in the wrong direction – their student can use the mindfulness training to get them on the right path.

However, it is expected to become more integrated into schools during the 2019 – 2020 school year. Teachers that get a head start with this technique should be able to start off their school year on a positive note. ClassDojo introduction of mindfulness training provides teachers and students with more resources for having a great day in class. 

ClassDojo: Innovating Our Classrooms

Recently, the developers of the app have announced that $65 million dollars have been raised through funding. Funding began with the launch of a new product, Beyond School which gives parents the option of viewing how their child learns out of school. Being free of cost, ClassDojo’s funds come solely from donations and parents’ optional subscription to Beyond School. What students love the most about ClassDojo is the reward system it uses. For good behavior such as not talking during class, or raising a hand up to answer a question, students can receive a point which is reflected on their daily ClassDojo student profile. The parents have access to this and therefore can monitor how the child is progressing through the day. The teacher is also allowed to share photos or videos taken of the students during class by posting them on the class stream which can also be seen by parents.

As technology advances, classrooms have strayed further away from conventional methods of teaching such as using paper textbooks to more up-to-date ones such as online textbooks. With every classroom racing to keep up with the latest technology, ClassDojo is one app that has stayed in use for nearly nine years. Since its development in 2011, ClassDojo has been used by teachers near and far as a communication platform that connects teachers, parents, students, and creates a sense of community. Because of its efficiency and ease of use, ClassDojo usage can be found in 2 in 3 schools.

ClassDojo is meant to create a positive culture in classrooms and schools that make students actually want to attend. It is one of the first apps to innovate the way communication is done in and out of the classroom. Because of this, the developers hope it will continue to be successful as they undertake any new ventures in the future.

ClassDojo Helping Parents and Teachers Connect

An article recently published on the website states that there is a clear favorite when it comes to teaching apps. ClassDojo is an app that allows parents to talk to parents during class about their student’s behavior. The app is all about empowering the parents and allowing them to make a connection with the teacher.

It is helpful because when you ask your child what they did in class, they aren’t always forthcoming with the information. This way parents can use the communication platform to gain knowledge about what’s happening throughout their child’s day without disrupting the teacher’s lesson plans.

The ClassDojo allows teachers to provide a way to practice classroom management with parents and address the situation right when it happens. It is a way to create a change from the ground-up and transform the parent-teacher conference in a positive way. Instead of reading impersonal notes in a child’s agenda or receiving a note pinned to their shirt, they can get personalized messages and pictures about their child sent to them whenever they want.

Not only can teachers use ClassDojo to share the behavior of their students, they can also post homework assignments and share pictures of what the kids are doing throughout the day.

ClassDojo is a versatile product that translates into thirty five languages and allows lines of communication to be open between parents and teachers in a secure way. The app even allows students to pick out their own avatar and gain or lose points based on their classroom behavior. Students are eager to share their points with their family and it helps teachers create a much more positive culture in the classroom.

Another positive of being connected to the classroom is the ability to immediately get information if there’s an emergency situation. Knowing your child is okay if there’s a fire or another incident is priceless. It’s easy to see why ClassDojo is a darling among teachers and parents alike.
