ClassDojo is set on changing the way parent and teachers communicate and eventually making the parent-teacher conferences a thing of the past. To accomplish this, the SanFrancisco-based company has developed an innovative app that is currently being used in 2 out of 3 schools in the country.
The app is used by teachers to keep parents updated on the progress of their children so there will never be a surprise when the student brings home their reports card. The company is focused on ground-up change in the educational system by empowering parents with a state of the art communications platform. Check this on en.wikipedia.org
The app has an interface that is similar to most social media platforms that parents and students use on a daily basis. With the ClassDojo app, a teacher can post photos, video or a status update showing the student’s work in real time. This keeps the parent in the loop so they can head off any problems that pop up before they become major issues.
This technology has already been adopted by over 85,000 teachers across the country. Most teachers who use the app are working in grades K-8. Read more on instagram.com
The app has become so popular that ClassDojo has recently raised $21 million in a Series B round of funding. This money will help the company grow and introduce the app to a whole new group of teachers.
The potential for the app is limitless. Many analysts believe that the app could be used to deliver customized lesson plans, instruction, and discussion guides that will help parents set their children up for success in school and beyond.
