Since the start of the year I've been using Class Dojo with my class.
My class love it and I love it! If you haven't tried it yet, you should.
Class Dojo is a free system for recording behaviour in your classroom. It is a web-based tool, which also has an iPhone app meaning that it is really easy to use. When a pupil exhibits certain behaviours, you add it to their profile.
We already have an effective Behaviour Lights management system in school. Because of this, after discussing it with my class, we decided that Class Dojo would only be used for recording positive behaviour.
These are the behaviours we negotiated:
You can see that the Olympic values feature, but also creativity, participation, working hard and helpfulness. All of these were suggested by my class.
It has made a real difference in the classroom so far, as pupils do their best to have their positive behaviour reported.
Do you use Class Dojo in your classroom? Has it made a positive difference?
