ClassDojo, an application that focuses on the development of communication between elementary school parents and teachers, recently conducted a survey that sought to gauge the reaction of students in classrooms where the company’s application has been utilized. According to ClassDojo representatives, student reaction to the application’s implementation has been overwhelming positive. Teachers in elementary classrooms have reported that students who used the ClassDojo application felt more engaged with the particular lesson that interacted with the app, experienced a higher level of responsible attitudes because of the application’s focus on parental involvement, and showed a higher capacity for tackling difficult subjects.
Higher Engagement With Specific Lessons
ClassDojo representatives reported finding pleading results after viewing the portion of the survey that involved student engagement. Teachers who participated in ClassDojo’s survey reported that students who used the application during the teacher’s coverage of a new subject matter experienced higher levels of engagement than students who did not use the application. ClassDojo representatives stated that this increased level of engagement is likely caused by the application’s integrative educational software. This software was designed to help students to connect classroom activities with virtual concepts thereby creating a deeper level of engagement for ClassDojo app users.
Higher Level of Responsible Attitudes
ClassDojo representatives also described impressive results with the portion of the survey that measured student levels of responsibility during course work completion. According to the participating teachers, students who used the ClassDojo application during class experienced noticeable levels of increased awareness of parental expectations. ClassDojo representatives stated that the application’s focus on parental involvement causes students who use the app to perform better. Because students are aware that their parents will have instant access to the course work completed while the application is open, they are better motivated to work to capacity.
Higher Capacity for Tackling Difficult Subjects
Teachers who participated in ClassDojo’s educational survey also reported improvements in student ability to master difficult subjects. During this section of the survey, teachers measured their students’ handling of various subject matters during application use agains the same students’ handling of the subjects while the application was not in use. The results showed that the ClassDojo application successfully assisted students with the ability to grasp unfamiliar subjects. ClassDojo representatives stated that the company will be competing additional research in an effort to continue to make improvements and assist the public school system.
