ClassDojo understands there must be a solid connection between educators and their students and parents. This is why they have raised twenty-one million dollars to ensure that connection is created and remains strong. They communicate about the activities of their students and the progress of their development at school. Parents are able to understand what their children’s day is like and how they are behaving.
Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary are the cofounders of ClassDojo. They have used their capitol to help their team grow and are figuring out what content and features will best suit their application. Their purpose is to provide parents the support they need to help their children. Parents are apprised of the activities of their children and can use the application to send videos and photos to their kids.
ClassDojo started in 2011 and at that time there were numerous businesses creating platforms and educational materials for kids. What they were missing was an application to create the bond necessary between parents, their children and the educators. Despite the competition ClassDojo is doing quite well. Teachers in 85,000 different schools are using ClassDojo. This includes both public and private schools and is most often used in grades kindergarten through the eighth grade.
The founders of ClassDojo are not trying to make money off the data of the users. The privacy of the kids involved is too important to them. What they are trying to accomplish is creating special features that parents would be willing to pay to use. The startup that began in San Francisco in 2011 has raised about thirty-one million dollars.
ClassDojo is about creating positivity in the lives of students. Educators encourage students for the skills and values they demonstrate. Children are encouraged to help each other in any way they can without being prompted to do so. This gives the kids a voice. They are given the ability to use videos and photographs to create their own unique portfolios. This way they can showcase their individual talents. This engages the parents because of the particular photographs the kids have chosen to show.
