Description

525 pupils aged from 8 - 13, high percentage of EAL students.

Goals

The goal of Class Dojo is to keep track of and reward children’s positive behaviour.

Methods

The routine to Class Dojo is to use it daily in the classroom to monitor behaviour. The procedure of the Class Dojo is that children are given characters and they receive points for positive behaviour and points are taken away for negative behaviour.

Materials

The tools used are access to the internet, iPads and computers. I also made vouchers that the children can trade in their points for rewards at the end of the month.

Assessment

Assessment of the children’s behaviour can be found on the class dojo website.

A report can be seen whereby you can see the positive and negative behaviour can be seen on a graph and printed out for teachers’ records.

ICT

The children have the opportunity to change their characters. The teacher can decide on the positive and negative behaviour that are relevant to them.

eTwinning

Not at present, there is a opportunity to use E-Twinning.

Mobility

The pupils can change their character’s appearance and can view their progress.

Stakeholders

The parents have the opportunity to view their children’s progress and behaviour.

Success

The children are rewarded for many positive behaviours; kindness, helping others, homework, handwriting, working hard, participating etc.
