Clip chart vs ClassDojo

Clip to ScrapBook #1

So I've used both in some form or fashion, but I'm wondering which you would recommend for self-contained second grade.

Clip chart: Pros: I feel like this takes less instructional time, and students can do it themselves without causing a major disruption. It's also a constant visual. Cons: It's stuck in the room, and there's a lot of "clip down when you get to the room" for hallway behavior. It's also harder to acknowledge a lot at once or whole groups without it being a major ordeal. When I'm trying to identify positives, it leads to me standing at the clip chart, which seems like a waste of time.

ClassDojo: Pros: Portable (with laptop). Parent communication. Easier to give multiple students points and group points. Random feature. Specific behaviors listed. Cons: Tied to the computer (it may not be nearby or it may be occupied). "How many points do I have?!" asked 14 times a day because it's not visual.
