As described in a recent article in MindShift, ClassDojo is an app designed for mobile devices and for use on the web. Avatars are created for each student in a class. This, then, allows teachers to note positive and negative student behaviors as they are observed. The teacher enters a number, based on a scale of -1 to +1, to describe the observed behavior for an individual student. Reports can be generated for individual students or an entire class. The program is meant to be a tool for educators and administrators, as well as students, who may respond well to the immediate and public feedback the program offers.
