Student Story FAQs

What are Student Stories?

Student Stories are student-led, digital portfolios for the classroom. Students can take pictures and videos of projects they are doing in class which they can share home and refer to throughout the year. No more loose papers and folders needed! Other features include: drawing on photos, voice notes, journal entries, filters and frames, annotations, and drawings.

Student Stories are part of Stories on ClassDojo: an instantly updated stream of pictures, videos and messages from the classroom and school that helps parents stay connected to everything their child is learning.

 

How do teachers use Student Stories?

Teachers can project or print off their classroom QR code, which they or students scan in with a shared classroom device to start. After logging in, teachers and students can post to Student Stories by taking a picture, video, writing a journal entry, or more. Once the posts are added, teachers will receive a notice to approve the post from their ClassDojo teacher account before it’s shared with parents. Teachers can also post directly to Student Stories or comment on student-created posts.  

 

How do students use Student Stories?

Students scan their classroom’s QR code with a shared classroom device in order to use Student Stories. After scanning, they tap their avatar and immediately can begin posting to Student Stories. Once they add a post, they tag themselves to add to their portfolio, which they can easily access throughout the year. After a post is added, teachers will receive a notice to approve the post from their ClassDojo teacher account before it’s shared with parents.

This year students have an even easier way to log into Student Stories at home. Rather than having to input usernames and passwords, students scan a home QR code on their parent’s phone to easily add to and view their Student Story.

How do parents view Student Stories?

Parents don't need a new code to view their child's Story. So long as a parent is already connected to the class, the student's posts will automatically show up in the parent's Story feed, along with Class Story and School Story posts.

This year students have an even easier way to log into Student Stories at home. Rather than having to input usernames and passwords, students scan a home QR code on their parent’s phone to easily add to and view their Student Story.

What apps is Student Stories compatible with?

So many! Students and teachers can upload work from any app that saves photos or videos to a phone’s camera roll, or that has a share button.

 

How do I import a photo or video from another app into Student Stories?

You can import a photo through two methods:

  1. Inside the app (e.g., Chatterpix and iMovie), tap “Share.” In the Share extension tab, enable “ClassDojo.” From there you can share to ClassDojo.
  2. Inside the app, save your video or image to camera roll. Open ClassDojo and upload the photo or video from your camera roll.

 

How can I add another teacher to a class?

It’s easy! Simply open the class settings and select “teachers.” Then select the teacher you’d like to add from the list of teachers in your school, or invite them to ClassDojo by entering their email address.  Learn more about sharing a class here

 

How do I archive or delete a class?

We don't offer a "Delete Class" option. Instead, we use an archive system. Archiving your class removes the class from view, as well as removes all parent connections. However, it also allows you to recall your class at a later time, if needed.  For a tutorial on how to archive your class, please visit this page.

 

Can students comment on other students’ posts?

At the moment, no. Though we are always open to new ideas on what would be most useful!

 

Can students use Student Stories if there is no classroom device?

Yes! This year students have an even easier way to log into Student Stories at home. Rather than having to input usernames and passwords, students scan a home QR code on their parent’s phone to easily add to and view their Student Story.
