ClassDojo was initially touted as a tool to help teachers improve student behavior. Now it’s also used to improve the level of collaboration among parents, teachers, and students. ClassDojo recently raised $21 million to improve and expand the functions of the app. The parents and teachers that use ClassDojo can now envision the app playing a role in helping to facilitate better continual communication between parents and teachers. The app has the potential to be so effective, it could make parent-teacher meetings a thing of the past.
Connecting Parents, Teachers, And Students
The ClassDojo app has used a Series B venture funding round to get $21 million. That money will be used to enhance the technology. Teachers will now be able to keep parents appraised on the things the students are experiencing and their behavior using photographs, video, and direct messaging. Parents can also share information on the work the student is doing at home. This can help teachers and parents enhance the student’s development and address learning and behavioral issues earlier.
Improved Learning Experience
ClassDojo was founded in 2011 and currently used by over 85,000 American charter, public, and private schools. The app is primarily employed to make parents aware of daily, weekly, and other planned activities. Soon ClassDojo will used to provide parents with a wide range of features and content they can use to improve the student’s development at home as well as in the classroom. This will enhance the student’s learning experience.
Purchase Supplies And More
The easy-to-use app helps to tighten the bonds between teachers and parents and create a more collaborate educational culture. It is currently in in kindergarten through 8th grade. But with companies like Reach Capital, SignalFire, and GSV now investing in the app, the San Francisco-based startup will soon be used from grade K-12. Soon parents will be able to use ClassDojo to purchase yearbooks, field trips, supplies, lessons, discussion guides, and other content to improve the student’s chances for success.
More Productive Classrooms
The app could lead to happier, more productive, better controlled classrooms and strengthen the lines of communications between parents and teachers. It can also save teachers time and help student learn important skills. The app can translate messages into 35 languages instantly and works on Android, iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, as well as any computer and has built=in privacy features. It is free for teachers.
