A recent post online detailed some of the features found in educational apps. More specifically, it focused on apps such as ClassDojo, that go beyond connecting teachers with parents. As an application designed to bring about ground-up change through better connections between parents, teachers and students, ClassDojo helps extend a student’s ability to learn outside of the classroom environment.
Not only have statistics shown that the ClassDojo application is being used in about 95 percent of elementary and middle schools located within the United States, they also show that one in every six children under the age of 14 is also using the app every day. The continued growth of the popularity of the ClassDojo app led the team behind it to offer an extension to the learning experience through the release of a new app called ClassDojo Beyond School. This new app is also designed as a communication platform for parents who are looking to provide their children with activities designed to provide a positive mindset.
The new app from ClassDojo utilizes some of the same desirable features found in their classroom application. The activities parents can guide their children through help promote better habits through mindfulness, reflection and meditation. This app also allows parents to provide positive feedback to their children through the use of digital points. The app comes with the type of fun character icons children have become familiar with, which help to make the process of learning more engaging. The ClassDojo Beyond School app is a unique way to engage children in activities that provide them with instant feedback for positive actions.
The new ClassDojo app reflects the company’s continuing effort to build a positive culture in classrooms and communities. Be allowing parents to extend the learning process for positive behavior, the new app empowers children with the ability to do their best. In addition to the built-in reward system, this app also comes with built-in videos that help parents guide their children through exercises for meditation. It also allows the video recording of children as they respond to preset questions designed to aid in self-reflection.
