In a recent update to the already very popular communication platform for the classroom, ClassDojo has made the application even better by including their all new parental engagement tool. This new tool is named Student Stories and will allow students to upload videos and images to their collection of work. This can then be shared with parents making their engagement more prominent in the child’s learning experience.
Through the application parents can track their child’s learning. Wether the child has drawn a beautiful image during an art class, written a creative essay or simply wants to show off a science experiment, ClassDojo makes the sharing of videos and images possible. Recording and sharing has never been more simple thanks to ClassDojo and the communication platform they have designed. Changes in the future of education are already taking place by empowering students to take ownership of their learning. Materials created during class can be added very simply to a story and does not require the child to have a personalized device or remember any login details.
The child can scan a QR code and add the material they wish to share. Comments by classmates or tags can be added with great ease. Once these stories have been established, teachers will then have to approve the additions made to the stories before they are forwarded home to parents. Teachers also have the added possibility to add to the stories created by the children. ClassDojo really makes the tailoring of these stories so easy and fun that children are drawn to the application and so are parents. Never has it been easier for parents to be in the classroom without actually being present all thanks to the innovation by ClassDojo.
A student centric class room environment is the dream of every teacher and ClassDojo makes it possible. Students now have a voice that can be heard through the platform. They can now also take full ownership of their learning experience which before the application was simply not possible.
Already the ClassDojo application is used in 2 out of 3 schools across the United States and many more will follow suite. Before the ClassDojo platform the school environment lacked the community spirit but thanks to the great networking capability of the application the education environment will change from the ground up for the better.
