ClassDojo is a platform that was developed with the primary purpose of improving the sharing of communication between the teachers and the parents. Parents can understand what is happening at school when they are not around. With that ambition at heart, ClassDojo was founded by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don in the effort to improve such communication between the educators and the parents.
Children need to be monitored so often, and relatives are not in a position doing so since they cannot be traveling to school or calling teachers often. The app closed such a niche, and they are now able to receive photos and other videos about their children’s activities at school. The founders are so much pleased because during its inception they didn’t expect such a milestone. They have now realized that it is worth the investment that they made for the better of the communities.
ClassDojo is being run by experts from famously known technology companies such as Facebook, Airbnb among others. It is led by educators and designed who are tirelessly improving the features in the application. The latest funds that they have raised over $20 million will be utilized in developing the general features of the application. The app currently can support activities as scheduled by the teachers on a daily basis at school and during the day. The investment will improve the app and add features that will monitor the day to day activities of their children when they are at home during the night.
ClassDojo has grown tremendously, and it is currently available in more than 180 countries. It has been adopted by two-thirds of the school in the United States of America now. To improve its performance, the founders, and the group is working tirelessly to ensure that the app has reached more schools and educators as possible.
ClassDojo as an app does not aim at making profits out of the parents’ data. Children are essential parts of the parents and the larger community, and their safety should be highly safeguarded and protected. ClassDojo till recently has raised over $31 million in venture funding, and it has passed the education tech accelerator, Imagine K12, and it is presently part of Y Combinator.
ClassDojo’s founders, however, are mostly concerned with competition. The market of providing apps that are supporting the interacting between the children and the parents are on the rise. Edtech companies such as Nearpod, Kickboard, and Remind among others are in the same market.
