I'm thinking of getting a Kindle for e-reading, but also has a tablet that I could use in the classroom, especially for Class Dojo. As I was looking at Kindle Fires on Amazon, I saw you could put apps on it. The display picture had Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, instagram, etc. Does anyone know if you can get Class Dojo on the Kindle fire?

Here's the page from Class Dojo: https://classdojo.zendesk.com/hc/en-...-for-ClassDojo

There are some other things to consider-
weight: My husband's is a longer rectangle and seems heavy to me.
speed: I found myself aggravated with the slow and awkward interface for web browsing (their Silk browser).
glare: Its primary function is as a tablet, so the screen is shiny. We have various tablets, but I have gradually upgraded over the years from a Kindle, to a Paperwhite, to an Oasis for e-reading.

You can jailbreak a Fire and add any Android app you want. Iíve done that to every Fire my mom and I have ever owned. (Five or six of them, I think.)

Fire is a good inexpensive alternative to an iPad.

I have 12 Fire tablets! Dojo runs great on them.

I keep meaning to jailbreak them and put the Google Play store on them but I never get around to it!

Ima Teacher, do you happen to have a link to the method you used for jailbreaking?

I have used a different tutorial every time Iíve installed Play Store.

I used this one most recently on the 10.1Ē one I bought for my mom.

I have two Kindles at school that we use.

The kids use them to take AR tests and I have some fun educational apps downloaded for when they finish their work. I also have purchased some e-books at times and they use the Kindles to read them.

I use one for Dojo and have no problems with it at all.
