Great FREE technology!!!

We can all feel it when spring is in the air. Our kiddos sure do! Well I have a technology based solution for spring fever! Its called Class Dojo! This is a completely free technology based management system and its easy too! Now I love my WTB but this seems to completely motivate the kiddos in the tricky last days.

Its easy to get started login to www.classdojo.com. Then it takes you through the simple steps to set up your classroom. It took me about 5 minutes to get it set up. Each kid gets an avatar and then they receive points or they can lose them. They LOVE it. My principal talks about how society is shifting to a gamer mindset. I totally see that in how the students react to this.

The kids love it and are so receptive. They love the ding and are rewarded by this instead of something tangible. It took very little time to get my class on board! I recommend it!

Now for a really cool app:

Apps Gone Free is a FREE app that tells you daily apps that are temporarily free. Its simple, easy, free and it gives you access to more free! My teammate recommended it and I have downloaded a bunch of great free stuff!

I hope you find these tech tips handy! I sure have! 


  1. Glad your class is liking it!! I was so excited when I found it.

  2. Class Dojo is a lifesaver! My favorite part is being able to use a smart phone as a remote. The reward sounds shape kids up in seconds - and I don't have to say a thing. :)
