Class Dojo

Class Dojo 

Class dojo is an educational technology communication app and website. It works on all devices, like tablets, phones, computers and ipads. It connects primary school teachers, students and families and helps teachers to connect with children when they are not at school.  


What can Class Dojo do? 

  • Teachers can bring parents into the classroom experience by sharing photos, videos, and announcements.  
  • Teachers can set work for pupils in their class using videos, messages and worksheets.  
  • Students can add their classwork easily to their own digital portfolios for their parents to and teachers to see. 
  • Parents get to see feedback from the class teacher about their child’s work.   
  • Teachers can also safely and instantly message with any parent.  
  • Messaging can be translated into more than 35 languages.

How to use Dojo 

All tasks and activities will be set to your child’s account and you will need to click on your child’s name to access activities set. All activities can be responded to using the method sent by the class teacher. This could be:  

  • responding with a text message 
  • responding with a video or picture  
  • responding by drawing on the screen  
  • or completing a worksheet.  


Receiving teacher feedback or messaging your child’s class teacher 

Dojo allows you to get feedback on your child’s work or message the teacher for help or further information. To do this you will need to go to the parent account rather than your child’s name. The parent account is used to give feedback so that you can discuss this with your child.
