Class Dojo does it again!!!!! Student Stories

Class Dojo is at it again!!!! I can not  express how much I love this company! They actually listen to the teachers and create programs that we feel will benefit our kids!!!  Today is the day that i am super excited to share with you Student Stories!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone’s buzzing about student portfolios, and I’m really excited about how they’ll increase student ownership in my classroom this year!

Today ClassDojo released Student Stories, an easy way for students to add photos and videos of their classroom work to a digital portfolio. Parents will now be able to follow along with their child's learning — a photo of a poem they wrote, a video of their volcano erupting, a message on how exciting it was to finally solve a tough math problem. Just one photo can now spark hours of conversation at home. Parents, students, and teachers become part of a shared classroom experience.

Made with young learners in mind, Student Stories is incredibly easy to use. After a quick scan of a classroom QR code, students use a shared classroom iPad (Chromebooks and Androids coming soon!) to take photos or videos of their work and add a reflection or comment. 

A simple tagging feature allows any student to add the work to their digital portfolio – along with others in the classroom for those projects done in groups. Nothing is saved or sent home without teacher approval, after which the images are instantly shared with parents wherever they are.

For more information on Student Stories, check out I think you, your students, and their parents are going to love it! And if you have any questions, I’m always happy to help :)  

Class Dojo has done it again! from Social Skills to Growth Mindset to Student Stories, the possibilities are endless! 
Can't wait for this year to begin! It is going to be Dojoriffic!!
