So What’s the Difference Between
ClassDojo and ClassTag?

Although there are some pretty big differences with the features and
functions, we think the biggest difference comes down to philosophy

Transactional Teaching

With ClassDojo, you reward or punish students with Dojo points

ClassDojo’s claim to fame is Dojo Points, their in-class behavior management tool. Students can earn points for good behavior or lose them for bad. While some teachers love this, there’s a lot of controversy, and some teachers and parents feel it causes more problems than it solves.

Dojo helps you incentivize students

Rewarding or punishing students with Dojo Points can be an effective way to manage behavior, but it often times ends in shame, guilt and embarrassment for students who struggle. Hence why many teachers advocate different ways to manage behavior.

Community Supported Teaching

With ClassTag, you can help students succeed by partnering with parents

ClassTag takes a different approach. Rather than focusing on kids earning points, we help teachers get 100% of parents involved in their kids' education. We believe this is the best way to help students succeed.

ClassTag helps you build meaningful relationships

So, long story short, if you believe deep relationships and parent engagement are the keys to student success, you’re in the right place. We created ClassTag for you.

“ClassTag is transformational. I have never seen this level of parent engagement. A must-have tool for every teacher!!”
