We have been exploring how teachers, parents and children can communicate through a safe platform in case of individual self-isolation or class or school closures. We have chosen Class Dojo as the platform to provide an interactive home learning experience as it offers the ability to share work and feedback between students and teachers. This will only be a method for remote education in the event of Covid-related absences, whether awaiting tests/results or isolating due to a positive test or a track and trace instruction.
An overview of the Class Dojo process:
- Parents will be sent an email invite to sign up to a ClassDojo account.
- Once this is complete, a message will be sent to the parent’s ClassDojo account with their child’s student account details and login instructions.
- Work will be uploaded to ClassDojo by the class teacher using the Class Story feature for students to download and complete.
- Students upload their completed work to their ClassDojo Portfolio for their teacher to mark and provide feedback.
