ClassDojo gives students the ability to share their work and everything that they are learning with their parents. They can personalize their portfolios by adding pictures and videos of their work. Parents are able to be more engaged with their children’s progress with instant updates from teachers through private messaging. Teachers and students are able to build on their classroom structure by sharing feedback on progress with each other. Teachers are also able to provide encouragement by using a point system that they can allocate to their students who make good choices or do positive things.
