ClassDojo: Could this app improve pupil behaviour?

Software created by two British developers aims to improve pupil behaviour in class by replacing the "carrot and stick" with points and monsters.

Teachers sign-up for ClassDojo and then select the behaviours they would like to reward. When a pupil responds in a positive way they can give points or deduct them for bad behaviour.

Experts say the data generated by the software can also be valuable in tracking a pupil's progress over time.

The BBC's North America technology correspondent Richard Taylor reports.
