ClassDojo is a relatively new company within the educational market, and they have developed a learning platform for students, parents, and teachers to take part of to improve their experience for everyone involved. There are already many educational programs on the market, but none of them have met the need for communication that ClassDojo brings. Today, this communication has gone a long way to improve learning for students all around the country and even around the globe. By using the ClassDojo tool, parents are finally able to stay in contact with their kids in school as well as teachers so they always know what is going on as well as provide encouragement for their children. This also helps students with their behavior, as they regularly have their parents checking in on them.
Teachers are also able to use the app regularly within the classroom to provide encouragement, give feedback, post notes, and share classroom moments through pictures and videos that students are able to see on the story board. This tool is opening up possibilities that have never been possible in the schooling environment today, and is expected to improve conditions in schools all over the world in the future.
Many teachers who have used the app have been delighted by how well it works at engaging their students and getting them involved with school activities. This is greatly helped by the fact that parents are also able to stay involved and participate in their child’s schooling much more often. Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, the men who founded ClassDojo back in 2011, did so after traveling around the country and seeing the conditions as well as hearing the statements from teachers on what they think of the current standards in education. This lack of communication was just right, since ClassDojo has been widely successful after releasing their platform for communication, and it has also gone a long way in improving various school communities around the country. Today, ClassDojo has made its way into the classrooms of more than half the schools in the entire country, and will continue to spread in the near future into many more schools around the world.
