Technology has been used in the field of education for several decades now. A recent online article highlighted some of the key aspects to creating technology that makes the grade with administrators and educators. The objective of technology for the classroom is to help students learn in a friendly and comfortable environment. This can be seen in the design of the ClassDojo app, which places its focus on connecting students, teachers and parents in one easy to use platform.
Problem solving tops the list of the most desirable aspects or features for classroom technology. Software programs that help educators make learning fun, also helps to empower students in a way that makes them want to learn. ClassDojo accomplishes this by using the type of icons for rewards and recognition that students at all elementary levels can identify with. This app also helps educators resolve problems by allowing instant connections between teachers and administrative staff or parents through its messaging platform.
Educators also want technology for the classroom that has been proven to have a positive effect on students, parents, teachers and the community. Since it is now used in about 90 percent of schools with grades K through 8 in the United States, the ClassDojo app has more than proved itself as a useful educational tool. The team behind this powerful mobile application designed it to meet the needs of individualized classrooms rather than as a cookie cutter format for all classrooms. It is its flexibility of design that gives the power of effective student communication back to the teachers and parents.
Another important aspect educators would like to see in the technology being created for classrooms today, is the ability to move forward. They would like to know what plans the applications have for growth as the field of education moves forward. The continual process of growth of ClassDojo can be seen in the progress it has made in its incorporation into other languages. It has already been translated into more than 35 different languages, which makes it a classroom tool that is now being used by educators, parents and students around the world.
