I am very excited to announce that ClassDojo has set in motion a new tool, Student Stories. This very fundamental tool allows students to add additional pictures and videos to their portfolios and share them with their parents. Students will definitely be able to include their parents and bring them along for the ride of their learning adventures. This is an awesome way to develop a less intricate connection between students and parents while developing an understanding to different assignments. The device allows students as well as teachers to add different materials to their creations without having to remember any difficult username or passwords. There is a QR code put in place which allows the students to scan the code and pick up where they left off. However, teachers has to confirm any added material before it is sent out for viewing by parents. Student Stories is a very brilliant idea that opens doors for many students who may have not been able to voice their opinion or exactly what they were trying to say verbally. It also gives parents an opportunity to have front row seats to the hard work and creativity that their children are putting forth on a daily basis. I am sure that this is a great start for an outstanding communication platform between teachers, students, and parents. With the creation of Student Stories, it will allow many students to be able to come together and have fun working as a team. A positive culture within the classrooms is definitely something that is needed in each and every school. Every parent want their child/children to go to school and feel comfortable so that learning can feel as natural to them as possible. ClassDojo has certainly made room for a ground up change within the school systems to develop better communication skills, better student-teacher relationships, as well as student-parent relationships.
Although ClassDojo may be viewed as a simple creation, I think that it will have a very high success rate. The main goal of ClassDojo is to offer parents an open door to their student’s behavior in the classroom. By students being knowledgeable of the fact that their parents will be notified of their behavior, I think that it will cause less behavioral problems from students.
ClassDojo has the potential to create stress free classrooms where teachers can continuously teach versus having to stop and discipline a child from time to time. Students will be more engaged with doing the best of their ability to make their parents and teachers proud.
