When it comes to education communication is essential to each students success. Communication between parents and teachers helps provide students with the support and encouragement they need throughout their school day. In an ideal world, parents would be there every step of the way. Unfortunately, however, because most parents work busy schedules typically during school hours, it can be difficult to be hands-on with their child’s learning.
In 2011 business partner Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don founded ClassDojo, the platform that makes it easier for parents to remain involved and their child’s school day despite other demands. The app helps connect both English and non-English speaking parents to their child’s classroom by simply opening the app on their smartphone. We all know the saying “sharing is caring”, that’s why ClassDojo also acts as a sharing platform. Teachers can share student reports related to behavior and academics as well as upload videos and photos.
ClassDojo is on a mission to enhance the overall educational experience for parents, students, and teachers. Working together, parents and teachers help empower students through recognition of their achievements and help build happier classrooms. Courage and support are equally essential to the success of each student. Having a safe platform that allows them to receive this support is what ClassDojo is all about. More than 3.5 million teachers worldwide are using ClassDojo in their classrooms each day. The app breaks the mold for Ed tech platforms and services and is recognized as one of today’s most innovative classroom tools.
In 2017, Inc. named ClassDojo as one of the “25 Most Disruptive Companies” of the year. The ClassDojo team was also recognized by the popular The today Show, receiving their Education Innovation award in 2011. The convenience offered to parents through the app is unmatched. With ClassDojo, parents can have constant access to their child’s classroom virtually anywhere in the world.
