ClassDojo is a fantastic management tool that can truly transform student behavior in your classroom. Their mission is to help teachers improve behavior quickly and easily. Teachers can use ClassDojo’s website or one of their mobile apps to capture and generate data on behavior that can be shared with par
ents and administrators.
Each student will have their own monster avatar and teachers can award feedback points for behavior in class in real-time. Using a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer one click is all it takes to record behavior data. Kids can receive instant notifications and teachers can share reports with families. ClassDojo Messaging is another cool feature you’ll want to check out. It lets teachers communicate with parents quickly and easily – straight from a mobile device.
I’m so excited to announce the launch of a brand new video that shows ClassDojo in action! Listen to these stories and see the benefits of this customizable classroom tool:

Students working through long division problems will benefit from the extra practice manipulating dividends and divisors.

This past year I’ve shared Tocomail a platform designed to make email safe for students. They have recently launched Tocomail for Gmail, an app designed specifically for teenagers. It provides instant messaging, a drawing board, avatar customization and optional parental controls, in addition to standard email features.
Tocomail for Gmail lets older kids take their regular Gmail account and transform it into a colorful, personalized tool for sending messages to friends and family. Parents also have the option to keep track of their children’s email activity through parental controls. Tocomail for Gmail is easy to use and gives teens the opportunity to transform their email account into an instant messenger tool.
Tocomail is completely free with extra options available through an in-app purchase. Visit their website or watch this video to learn more!
