Encouraging students with positivity

Miranda Hanson, a teacher at Travis Elementary School on Travis Air Force Base says ClassDojo helped her become a more positive teacher, and preventing her from only focusing on students who “act up”. Hanson focuses on conveying her expectations for good conduct with the visual interface of ClassDojo, and customizing behaviors to those important to her classroom. The visual cues help students understand the kind of behaviors she is looking for. By encouraging the good behaviors in children, other children strive to learn the same to receive positive encouragement as well! The students now even compete with one another to be the “Player of the day.” Watch more about Maranda Hanson’s use of ClassDojo:
