ClassDojo has been significant in reducing the many problems that teachers have faced particularly when there is a need to involve the parents. ClassDojo is a class management system tool. It has been significant in helping teachers shape the best of behavior in their students. It is easy to set up and use and can be used in both Apple and Android devices.

The way class ClassDojo works is that every student is assigned an avatar. After the class is set up the teacher has the ability to assign every student’s point for both positive and negative behaviors. Awarding of the points can be given to individual student or to group. ClassDojo comes with a list of behaviors, but you also have the option to create your list. Teachers that use ClassDojo are usually able to give their students immediate feedback; thus, students are always kept active and on their toes.
When students are awarded points with ClassDojo, there is a distinct sound that indicates a student has been awarded points. ClassDojo indeed does motivate students as they all want to gain positive points. The app has been significant in helping teachers and also parents keep track of the students’ behavior.
