ClassDojo Allows Teachers To Get Messages To The Parents Of Their Students

It can be helpful for parents and teachers to be able to communicate with one another. If a teacher has some message that they want to get to the parent of one of their students, they need to have a way of quickly contacting that parent. The same is true if the parent would like to share something about their child with that child’s teacher. There is an app that was developed and that is growing very popular that helps with all of this. ClassDojo was created to help parents and teachers communicate with one another. This app was created so that teachers can do a good job of leading their students.

Those who created ClassDojo wanted to make something that would help to solve some of the communication issues that teachers have to face on a regular basis. This app helps teachers get feedback from the parents of the children they are teaching. This app also helps teachers let parents know what their children are learning and it helps them share personalized messages with the parents regarding ways that their children are struggling. The ClassDojo app helps to make the lives of teachers a little easier by providing them with a way of communicating with parents.

ClassDojo Brings Mindfulness to the Classroom

Mindfulness, the idea of meditating and paying close, purposeful attention to our bodies and minds, is having a moment–a really big, worldwide moment. The classroom aid ClassDojo, an app that helps parents and teachers keep track of students’ behavior by using cute animated monsters as motivators, recently used their program to sponsor the world’s largest “Mindful Moment,” as they called it.

ClassDojo surveyed their large base of users and found many parents and teachers were concerned about the lack of education about their emotions children were receiving. ClassDojo decided their program would be the perfect means to give students mindfulness training. Mindfulness, they believed, could help children in dealing with their emotions.

The “Mindful Moment” was set for May 10th. ClassDojo asked all the educators using their app to perform a short mindfulness module. This consisted of playing a brief animated video explaining how to meditate and leading the class through it.

That video was the beginning of a week-long module full of videos ClassDojo created teaching children different methods of mindfulness. ClassDojo hoped that module would help students struggling with their emotions during class time and teachers who would like to pass the benefits of mindfulness onto their class.
