This app lets teachers, parents, and students connect via a simple system. Teachers for example can give positive “stickers” to their students, such as being on task, participating, and working hard. Parents in return see these stickers, as do the students. There are also “needs work” stickers such as being off task, talking out of turn, unprepared. These stickers are all referred to as “bubbles,” but I think it would be more intuitive to name them stickers since that’s what they virtually represent.
Teachers can also take photos of classroom moments and share it with parents, as well as message parents directly. The other feature I noticed in this app was the ability to take attendance.
I must say what a great looking app! That’s where the good things about ClassDojo seem to start and end however.
Room to improve
While this app seems like a really great idea, I cannot imagine having used it in elementary school or anyone (including teachers, parents, and students) having any user for it. As far as I’m concerned it is a complete and utter gimmick.
If you’re looking for an educational app for teachers, students, and parents, skip past this one. It’s nothing more than a gimmick.
