Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 27, 2013 3:09 AM

This scoop it profile by @Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)  includes many useful blogs and articles that aim to teach in the 21st century. This includes learning with the use of technology. What he refers to as the 'iGeneration' includes many useful updates that can be used for both the students and teachers in the classroom. A few i came across that sparked my interest were a description on how to set up a blog with wordpress for teachers, this can be very useful to me as a student now and also in the future. I enjoy D'Amico's profile as he scoops quite interesting topics.

Jane Weston's curator insight, February 16, 8:58 PM

When curriculum resources are limitless due to the access we have to on-line materials, then the question we ask about those materials become more important. Values Education helps us all to ask the right questions! See some innovative whole school projects at:

 The notion of sharing and collaborating in a “networked classroom” empowers the whole learning environment.  The BYOD provides a creative solution to create a participative model of teaching and learning.  Teachers and students are side-by side in the learning process. BYOD programs promote student achievement and advance teachers’ technology skills.

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :)

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :) | iGeneration - 21st Century Education | 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 :)
