What is ClassDojo?

Education has just gotten much more progressive. ClassDojo is a very unique and extremely progressive way of interacting with students as well as with parents. It is an app that connects students, teachers, and parents and gives students a new medium in which they can share their thoughts and their ideas.

Students can create their own portfolios and share their thoughts and ideas throughout the course of the day. The mission of the ClassDojo is to create a classroom environment that will be able to bring the best out of not just a few of the students but all of the students.

This app is primarily used for students from grade K- 8. With this app 1 out of three kids aged 5- 14 have learned about the growth mindset. For more information as it pertains to the growth mindset, we highly recommend that you read Mindset by Carol Dweck.

This app is a great way to help students who are especially shy and nervous to express their thoughts and ideas and help to better reveal the young geniuses that are inside of all the students.

This app has become very popular and, as a result of its popularity, has been translated into over 35 languages and has become a very popular app for many parents as it helps them to better connect with their children throughout the day.
