ClassDojo Aims To Change Education As We Know It
Transforming the educational system is a lofty goal. One that politicians and educators have long strived for but never delivered. If ClassDojo has their way, the education system will be dragged into the 21st century one student, one teacher, and one parent at a time.
The San Francisco-based startup had a novel idea when it can to figuring out what teachers needed to be more effective. They went and actually talked to teachers. This may seem like a no-brainer, but too many people have tried to change education from the top down. And it hasn’t worked.
By taking a “bottom up” approach, ClassDojo has developed an app that is currently used in 90% of all schools in America.
The app is very similar to other social media apps that parents and students are using. instructors can post updates on student performance, photos, and videos that parents can see in real time. This way parents can keep track of student progress and are alerted to any areas that need attention.
Parents can also use the app to inform teachers if their child will be absent one day or ask questions. This seamless communication ensures that parent, teacher, and student are all on the same page and working toward common goals.
Trying to create a one-size-fits-all approach to education is a losing battle. No two schools and no two classes are the same. With the ClassDojo app, teachers and parents can create a customized environment that is optimal for each student.
With over 20,000 teachers giving the company constant feedback, ClassDojo will always be on the cutting edge of education technology. The app has been translated into 35 languages and is in use in over 180 countries. The company estimates that the app reaches approximately 1% of the global students in grades K-8.
With so much room to grow, ClassDojo could be a major influence in how education is delivered to students around the world.
