Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :)

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :) | Stuff I find | Scoop.it
Hello, folks :)


Since ClassDojo’s beginnings, millions of teachers have signed up to use ClassDojo in their classrooms. Over time, we’ve been excited to hear those teachers spread it to other teachers in their schools and grade-levels - creating entire ‘ClassDojo schools’ where every teacher uses ClassDojo, or whole grade-level teams using ClassDojo to help students develop the behaviors and skills they need for success.


Today, we’re thrilled to announce two features that make using ClassDojo across an entire grade-level or school - or even with just a few other teachers - a lot easier! Now, for the first time, you’ll be able to connect with other teachers in your school to teach classes together, share student rosters, and track your students’ progress across all their different classes. These features have been the most popular requests from teachers everywhere over the last few years - we hope you like them :) 


There are two ways to work together with other ClassDojo teachers, Shared Students and Shared Classes:





With Shared Students, teachers can connect with each other and share individual students to fill each other’s classes. Setting up your classes will be faster by pulling from the school roster, and you can also view students’ reports from their other teachers’ classes.




With Shared Classes, you and your colleagues can teach the same class, awarding feedback points in each others’ classes, and instantly messaging parents! This feature is great for teaching assistants and also classes that move together during the school day.



Read more details on the ClassDojo Community Forum!


We’ve been hard at work building these features to help you use ClassDojo across your whole school or grade level - and this is just the first step! We hope you love what we’re launching today, and we’d love your feedback - let us know what you think in the comments below, or by emailing us at hello@classdojo.com :)

Class Dojo is a useful application to track attendance and generate behavioral awards.  It also generates reports that can be shared with parents.  While Class Dojo is a great idea, there may be FERPA concerns with sharing the information with other classrooms.

The lesson here is simply don't be overwhelmed by the volume of activity.  Narrow your focus, define your audience as tightly as possible, talk to them in terms relevant to their lives and be creative.

“And the web stormed the enterprise and disrupted roles, tasks and jobs: it cast speed, openness, flexibility and efficiency throughout, sparing no business processes: manufacturing, logistic, accounting, customer relation management, lead generation…”
The digital mutation is also profoundly disrupting how knowledge is acquired, organized and shared. Knowledge is an intangible, yet strategic asset of any enterprise. With businesses becoming more virtual and dematerialized, its value is patently and rapidly growing. Continue reading →

Regular bed times as important for kids as getting enough sleep | Stuff I find | Scoop.it

An Australian study of almost 2,000 school-aged children recently showed that, when compared to a child with the same bedtime (less than a 30 minutes difference across the week), a child with a 60-minute difference was twice as likely to display hyperactive behaviours and have problems controlling their emotions.

Gary Walsh's curator insight, July 23, 2014 4:34 AM

Found this to be a useful graph for reflection and I like the concept of a 'Learning Leader'. A lot of intrinsic values and motivators listed i.e. things that are inherently rewarding to pursue, as opposed to a focus on external approval or rewards.

 

Is a Learning Leader therefore somebody who is intrinsically motivated?

Researchers to study desensitization caused by violent video games

Researchers to study desensitization caused by violent video games | Stuff I find | Scoop.it

UTSA researchers Alberto Cordova and Gabriel Acevedo have received $14,000 to study whether demographic, socioeconomic and ecological factors offer a buffer to the desensitizing effects of violent video games.

 

Scholars estimate that more than 85 percent of video games contain some form of violent imagery, and half include what they coin "serious violent actions." They also warn that violent video games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops have desensitizing effects on the body's physiology. But are some people desensitized by video games more than others? How does a video game player's home environment factor in?

 

Using a trio of violent video games and a trio of non-violent video games, Cordova will identify causes that may be linked to physiological distress. Additionally, he will gauge physiological and psychological outcomes associated with exposure to violent video games. Lastly, he will measure whether demographics and socioeconomics are significant factors in a person's physiological response to violent video games.
