Last week I had a conversation with ClassDojo’s head of marketing, Manoj Lamba, about some of the new features they’re rolling out before most teachers go back to school for the 2015-2016 school year. There are a few that I want to share with you, but I can only share one of them today (the others will be unveiled in early August). Beginning today you can create student groups in your ClassDojo account.
ClassDojo Groups allow you to arrange groups of students within your ClassDojo classroom. You can put students into groups according to tables or by another criteria that you select. You can give points and recognition to the entire group for things like working together, group problem solving skills, and any other behavior that you want to reward. Group points are displayed in students’ profiles along with the individual points they’ve earned.
ClassDojo Groups work in your web browser as well as on the iOS and Android apps for ClassDojo.
