If ClassDojo cannot be displayed for the class, there are other ways of getting it to work for you. While it may lose some of its intended effects, using it as a point-tracker on a smartphone or a computer will still do the job of pinpointing one student, and giving them a +1 or -1, along with default options (and ones you can create yourself) for each. The best part? It is very easy to share this content with parents, on a daily/weekly/whatever-you-want basis!
Reading around the "stories" page, you will find many examples of incentive systems used by other teachers. The one I would lean toward is awarding a group with the most points something (candy, extra point, free seating arrangement, etc) at the end of the week. There are lots of tips on that page!
In my class: I tried this as an incentive system for what was possibly an insubstantial amount of time. It did not work for my needs, but I would be willing to try it again. I needed something in which I could multi-manage a large number of students and be able to write and enter notes on behavior, rather than pick from a set. ClassDojo could have great potential in the classroom where behavioral issues are not a persistent issue, where the teacher can quickly assess a student (positively or negatively) through a couple of clicks. To use ClassDojo to get the most out of it and remain consistent, I would suggest using it for a full cycle during each class - meaning, award each student once.
In the works:
On the Class Dojo boards educators are sending in requests for improving the service such as: include partner/group picker, adding comments, student access between all classes, device syncing, avatar animations, etc.
-Create and archive multiple classes.
-Attendance taker (web only)
-Random button! Use the randomizing function to pick a random student without bias, without craft sticks, and without mental effort!
-Award multiple students
-Connect from smartphone
-Can track their points with a 'secret code' to access their student account
-Can customize their avatar
-Can be easily notified by email about their child's behavior
-Can create an account to track their child's points / behaviour
