There are many parents out there who are unable to take part in the activities of their children while they are in school. In the majority of cases, this is because of time related issues, and of course since active communication is something that’s never been very big while students are in school. This is becoming possible, however, with the use of ClassDojo, an educational platform that greatly increases the available communication between students, parents, and teachers. The overall goal is not to just improve communication though, it is also to reshape education for the better and build more positive and supporting schooling environments for all parties involved. This is important because students who feel left out, looked down on by their peers, or just lack confidence, will fail to do well when they are highly capable.
Liam Don, one of the founders of ClassDojo, got into working on the app in the hopes that it would potentially change education as a whole, for the better. By using this platform, teachers and students are able to post up pictures and videos as well as stories and notes. This allows for saving special moments by putting them onto the story board that can be seen all year.
The app also presents even greater opportunities for parents as well, since they no longer have to worry about lengthy conferences or finding the time to schedule a meeting with a teacher. With ClassDojo, parents can stay in direct contact with teachers at all times of the day, regardless of what they may have to do. Parents can check in on their children using the platform at any time of the day as well, to check in on their progress as well as behavior. This allows parents to also provide encouragements and feedback on what they are doing to build their confidence and discipline for doing their school activities.
ClassDojo only launched around 5 years ago, and it has since grown steadily and seen a great deal of praise an admiration among parents and teachers alike. After seeing so much success with the platform, ClassDojo was quick to keep up support and add features to make their app better, and they will continue to do so in the future while keeping the app free for everyone. With more than 2/3 of schools in the United States hopping on board with ClassDojo, the company has a mission to extend their platforms reach even further around the globe. Spread their reach around the world.
