ClassDojo is growing in popularity in America since it was founded in 2011. It is a communication platform that promotes communication between parents, teachers, and students. It is an app that enables parents and teachers to be part of a “teaching team” and learn how their students are performing when they are at school.
The teacher snaps photos and takes videos of the students, and they upload it on the app. On the other end, the parents are then able to view how their children are doing and behaving at school. Through this, the community is created, and an active culture is improved with classrooms and the schools at large. The app was founded by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don in 2011 and currently two out of three schools are using the app. It has grown outside America, as well, to more than 180 countries.
The latest series of funding brought $21 million for the company, making the total of $31 million since its inception. The application enables teachers and schools to make it create close-knit communities where teachers, parents, and students can work together as a team. ClassDojo has improved the progress in education by making learning and teaching more personalized in ways that students love.
ClassDojo has a well-organized team that involves engineers, educators, and designers all over the world. They have great experience in public and charter schools and from other prestigious companies like Facebook, Google and Y Combinator.
The mission of the company is to empower teachers, parents, and students to change education from the ground-up. The first step in doing that was to help create amazing cultures within classrooms, while creating a home-school connection. Teachers love it so much they’ve spread it entirely through word-of-mouth – which makes its growth similar to other platforms like Facebook and SnapChat.
