Over the past month and a half I have been using Classroom Dojo. I have been trialling the use in three of my classes.
1. Teacher allocates plus and minus points
2. Students nominate classmates who deserve positive points
3. Both Teacher and Students allocate plus and minus points
The most successful application of the Classroom Dojo has been trial number 2. Students have become more aware of their interactions and enjoy giving points to each other, this generally has led to more positive behaviours and a reduce in minor classroom distractions.
Students in all trials have made additional suggestions on positive and negative behaviour point categories to add to our list.
Been a fun way to focus on the positives in class. Check it out!
