What is Class Dojo?
Class Dojo is a school learning platform, for teachers, pupils and families, which can be used to share what’s being taught at school. At Thomas Whitehead, we use Class Dojo as our main communication and reward system. Class Dojo also allows children to access work in a variety of ways and enables them to send work back to their teacher without having to print anything off. Pupils can receive feedback and rewards whilst parents can see their progress.
Why has Thomas Whitehead chosen Class Dojo?
Class Dojo is free to use and enables direct contact with teaching staff, alongside providing important updates and information on school events. Class Dojo can be accessed via a web browser or by downloading the Class Dojo app.
Class Dojo is used widely in schools across the country, as it is so accessible and child friendly. Since we launched the site in school, we've had lots of positive feedback from children, across all key stages, and can see how motivated they are to access their accounts. Class Dojo focuses on building a positive school culture based on the skills and values which we embed at our school. Skills such as perseverance, teamwork, creativity, empathy, and growth mindset are encouraged and acknowledged through the Class Dojo points system and via positive feedback from teachers. This is in line with the ethos of our school and compliments our current approaches well.
Child Friendly and Fun!
The Class Dojo site is easy to use, fun and child friendly. Each child has their own Class Dojo monster which they can alter the look of, and they can collect points which can be converted into class prizes. Work is easy to access and hand in, at the click of a button and the app can be accessed on any electronic device from phones to laptops.
Problems Logging in?
Each child will have been given a unique QR code by their teacher to bring home. This will enable them to access their personal account easily. For the QR codes to work, the camera setting will need to be enabled on the device they are using. Further details can be found in the links below.
