For the last several years, I have used ClassDojo in my classroom. It started as a way for me to monitor and track classroom behaviors, but it has transformed into my data collection, parent communication, stick pulling, an incentive tool, all around a handy dandy everything. Being that my iPad is glued to my side, in my classroom, documenting behaviors has been easy. However, when GoNoOdle entered my life and my classroom I knew I needed some way to bridge it into my ClassDojo world...
Speaking of communicating with parents, did you know that you can send messages through ClassDojo? You can send out whole class or student specific messages.
You can also add comments to behaviors that students earn.
I also use ClassDojo to pick students to choose the GoNoOdle break that we will do. ClassDojo has a random button that does what it says, it picks a random student. It makes choosing brain breaks, calling on students, as easy a clicking a button.
I love being able to use these two tools together.
If you haven't signed up for ClassDojo or GoNoOdle yet do it now! They are both free tools that have the ability to transform your classroom?
How do you use these tools?
