Meet the Next Generation of Educational Apps: ClassDojo

Introducing a social education app designed to grow relationships, teach students and enhance parental bonds, meet ClassDojo.

This app was designed for those who might not be able to afford a private education, use of this app can serve as an enhancement to a traditional public school education.

ClassDojo uses cartoons and positive reinforcement to teach students, they receive supportive comments and praise. Yes, it sounds so simple. Yes, it works.

This is the unique model that ClassDojo built, students and participants have responded positively.

The key might be the type of praise that students receive. Instead of the traditional “great job” or “good”, students receive points along with intuitive compliments that address each student’s personal gifts.

The instructors at ClassDojo praise acts of exemplary thinking…and listening. Too often, schools focus on grades, grades, grades. Here is where ClassDojo shines and the students have responded.

Here’s How it Works

ClassDojo is a communication app, with an education centric design. It enhances the teacher-student relationship, dramatically improving interaction between faculty and students.

With the ability to perform powerful functions, such as checking messages from parents, the role of the teacher is greatly expanded.

ClassDojo strengthens the bond between teacher and parent as well, there is no longer a need to wait for parent-teacher conferences to interact with teachers.

This format is a hit thanks to positive affirmations, giving children avatars doesn’t hurt either. Whenever a student accomplishes something noteworthy, they receive something in addition to points and praise. The student’s avatar will signal the bonus, playing cute and bright sounds.

Further strengthening precious bonds between teacher, parents, and students, ClassDojo gives the teacher the ability to share precious keepsakes as class photos, or parent videos. Along with the app comes self-growth videos for kids, which stars the ClassDojo mascot Mojo – also a hit with students.
