ClassDojo

Principal function(s): Course management Virtual pinboard

ClassDojo is a mobile app that aggregates tools for teaching and managing classrooms. You can, for instance, remind students about their tasks, display the schedule for the day, play background music, arrange groups and even measure the noise in the classroom and incentivize self-management. You can create private groups for each class and communicate with students through these groups and each student can show their work by sending pictures and any other message. There is also a function that allows teachers to contact guardians or parents privately or in a group. The app offers an instant translation of these messages in more than 30 languages.

Evaluation: ClassDojo delivers everything it claims to offer and the company is concerned about user’s privacy. The interface is intuitive and the app can be used in different languages. Unfortunately, it seems to target exclusively early age education, since adolescents might not feel comfortable using an app with colorful funny characters and having their guardians/parents so easily in touch with their teachers.

Cost: Free. With registration.
