Greeting Great Minds!
I’m here with another exculsive Class Dojo reveal! The folks over at Dojo have been very busy. This year they’ve rolled out quite a few new features for an already amazing platform. They began the summer with the roll out of Groups then Class Story and followed up with a new translation feature in October. Well the already amazing Class Story feature will be allowing you to upload videos to your mini feed! Class Story is the awesome feature that allows you to post images in your story feed for all your parents to see. It really helps make communication between parents and teachers easier and more personal. Check out my last reveal post here to get more info on Class Story.
So what does this mean? Now teachers can share short video footage from their classroom. Imagine all the exciting things you can share with your families. Record yourself or a student sharing announcements, reminders with your families. Record snippets of experiments or anything exciting going on in your classroom or school.
Teachers often face the challenge of wanting to share important moments with parents but having to use multiple platforms to do so. With Class Story, teachers can share photos, videos and text messages all in one place, while knowing that only parents are able to see the information, and nothing is public. Plus, unlike emails or newsletters, sharing on Class Story is interactive. Parents are able to show their enthusiasm by tapping the like button, and teachers can see which parents have viewed posts so they no longer have to wonder who has the latest update.
Want to see it in action? Click here to see how video sharing will look with Class Story. This new feature will be available in a few weeks to everyone. I can’t wait to try it out. I plan on letting my students do daily video announcements on Class Story.
Please tell me how you plan to use the video feature with your families in the comments below.
Class Story will be live soon. In the meantime sign up to be a beta tester here so that you can help ClassDojo as they put the final touches on developing Class Story! If you want more info on ClassDojo click here to get to their website.
