Students can earn positive points and negative points. When a student receives a positive point they hear a happy reward sound and a bubble pops up on the board with the student's name who got the point and what they got it for. The same goes for a negative point but they hear a sad sound instead of a happy one. Of course, you can turn the sound off. What I love about this program is that I can use my smart phone as a Class Dojo remote! I can be anywhere in the room and give students points. Sometimes I'll take out my phone in our school library or walking down the hall and give students points - or at least they think I am (hehe.) It's been working so well - I really just have to take my phone out of my pocket, look at the kids, finger peck at my phone and you can hear a pin drop. They want those points SO BAD. (BTW I also do an end of the week reward for weekly percentage points.) With this program I can also set what I can give points for. It has been really handy for students who need daily/weekly behavior reports too. You can also email the reports to parents instead of printing it out. Parents can see exactly what kinds of points they get - it's great! Anyone else Dojo?
