ClassDojo Parent Setup
Scoil Bhríde has set up an online system for you to use at home.
The system is called ClassDojo www.classdojo.com.
We want you, the parent, to connect with your child’s online ClassDojo class, which his/her teacher has set up. You will connect by downloading the ClassDojo app on your phone/tablet or by going on to the ClassDojo website on your computer/laptop. Your child’s teacher will have sent you an email inviting you to join your child’s class on ClassDojo as a parent. So, you will need your own email account (click this link if you need see how to set up an email account. This is completely separate to ClassDojo). Your child/children will not need to sign up to an email account or a ClassDojo account.
Once you have set up your parent account, you will see the work that your child’s teacher has set for him/her. Show your child the work. You can take photos and upload files of his/her work and send them to his/her teacher through the ClassDojo messages using your parent account.
Mr Keane has been collecting parent email addresses. If you have not sent your email address yet please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
