ClassDojo is a brilliant new concept that helps to bridge the enormous gap between parents and the school environment, showcasing the interactions of children when in the classroom. ClassDojo is an Android smart phone application. It was first developed in 2011 and once it received sufficient seed funding it began operating bringing parents and the school environment closer together. What this ingenious application (app) does is to fulfill the parental need to inquire about a child’s school day that before usually elicited a simple but unsatisfying one-word response. This ClassDojo app gives feedback on the child’s progress while in the classroom. The ClassDojo idea was started in San Francisco in 2011 and maintains an office there. Since its beginning, ClassDojo has expanded to include 3.5 million students and teachers in 60 countries throughout the world.
This brilliant app knows few barriers. It works no matter what the size of the class or the language spoken. The world, including third world and poor countries, are using cell phones and smart phone app technology at an almost alarming rate. It is not unusual to see panhandlers in the United States of America talking on their cell phones and the sight of a native attired in primitive tribal dress holding an I-Phone is not unusual.
This brilliant app brings parents much closer to their children’s progress through the education process and is a way for children to boast of their classroom performance attainments to parents. All too often the school experience has been off limits to the parents and this is a way of connecting parents to the schools working with the future leaders of our world.
