Changing Point Weights in ClassDojo

There is a teacher at the middle school who has been using Class Dojo this year to make a noticeable difference in his student's behavior and motivation.

Setting it up is very simple, but here is a quick screencast (without audio) to show you how it can be done.

Another feature they released this week is the ability to share a class with other teachers. That means that a clan or team of teachers could decide on behaviors (and points) together and then share classes with each other to give a student and their parents/guardians an easy way to see how they behaved at school and what they can do to improve.

If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
