As most of you know, I have set up a class page on ClassDojo, which is a means to communicate and share work that the children have done. It will be an easier way for children, and yourselves, to ask me questions and to show what they have been doing during the time away. I can see everything that is sent and have overall site control as to what is uploaded - it needs my approval, even on individual portfolios. I will also be awarding 'Table Points' for different things that children have done and uploaded - clicking the 'Report' button will explain the reason behind the points.
Children add comments and pictures to their own portfolio which I can 'approve' to be put up on their page. The 'Class Story' can only be added to by myself and comments on children's portfolio additions are also only possible by me. Children can view other children's portfolios by clicking 'Switch Student' at the top of the homepage - I have found it on the website version, but am still searching for it on the App. This enables them to see everything that has been approved and posted. It is possible to add things on another child's portfolio (such as a message or picture), but this will once again not send until approval from me - this should not be used frequently, as otherwise I can't tell what each child has actually done themselves.
I ask please for parents to send me an email so that I can invite you to join our ClassDojo - this enables you to see your child's portfolio, our Class Story (which you can add comments to) and enable easier communication with myself. Alternatively, you can use the code relating to your child from the document below.
Please ask if you have any other questions - it might take a little while to get used to the website and all the things it can do.
