• A new website is helping teachers and students with classroom management.

    Here are some highlights from the article:

    • [The site] has more than 3.5 million teacher and student users in 30 countries
    • [One teacher] uses the software to note misbehavior and good behavior, including when students ask good questions or give a good presentation to the rest of the class
    • Students and parents could review behavior reports day by day, and they could see both positive and negative actions
    • The site is meant to actually help students change their behavior, not just keep tabs on kids
    • A survey of teachers who use ClassDojo found a 45 percent to 90 percent increase in incidents of positive student behavior, and a 50 percent to 85 percent decrease in episodes of misbehavior
    • ClassDojo is considered the fastest-growing education startup
