Class DoJo

Brief Description:

If you already use Class Dojo for classroom/behaviour management then Class Dojo Portfolios could be a good option to create a home-school link using your existing account. Kids can log in at school or at home using a class text code, QR code or Google account.

The portfolios tool enables students to upload different file/work types including photos of work, videos, journal (typed pieces of work e.g. weekend news, book report etc) and other files (e.g. documents).

Teachers can set tasks/assignments which students complete and the teacher moderates all work before it appears in student accounts.

Parental consent is necessary for students under 13 years of age. Sample parental consent letter: https://static.classdojo.com/docs/TeacherResources/ClassDojoPortfolios_consent.pdf

It is simple to set up and can be accessed via the website or ClassDojo app. Students can sign in using a QR code, text code or Google account.
