Why did Class Dojo add this awesome feature?
"Teachers love organizing their classroom into teams whether it’s table seating arrangements or project teams. ClassDojo, however, didn’t make it simple or easy to support this type of classroom and so teachers have been requesting this feature for years. ClassDojo Groups is the biggest change to the core of the platform, where teachers can now award points to either an individual student or a group of students both with the same positivity and ease as before!"
So here is my Demo Class with points that I had given them.
When you slide your screen to the right, you will find your groups screen.
You'll see each of the groups that you have created and the points that their group has earned together. Another little detail feature that I love is that the monsters that are shown on their group picture are the pictures of the monsters that are in that group. I assume that even when you kiddos change their monster, their updated monster will show up on their group page.
To award a point to the group, you select the group you want to give a point to, and then select Award Group, then chose the positive or negative behavior that you want to award to that group.
It's that easy!
What devices can I access the groups feature on?
"Class Dojo groups will work and sync across any iOS/Android device and any computer."

If you don't have Class Dojo already, download it now! If you do have Class Dojo, I hope you enjoy this new feature this year! Our school year starts on Monday so I'll be giving this a try for real next week!
