While scrolling through my WordPress Reader trying to look for some inspiration for my final blog posts, I came across Ashley’s blog post on “Class Dojo“. My initial thoughts were ‘What is a class dojo?’This sparked my curiosity to find out what this app was and what it could do. Moreover, I found that this app was used as a behaviour management tool for the classroom. Each student has a profile, complete with their own avatar, to which the teacher can assign positive and negative points (or “Dojos”) throughout the lesson (Buchanan, 2013).
Overall, I would be really interested to see how this app works in the classroom to control the behaviour difficulties. (The best part is that this app is FREE!!!)
