Parents can have the peace of mind in seeing the learning environment for their child. And the creators of ClassDojo are always working to improve the connection to the classroom. In working together, the app brings together a team of parent, teacher, and student.
Parents today can have a much harder time keeping up with their children’s education than ever before. Part of this is because more households today rely on having both parents work, which reduces the amount of time that a parent has to communicate with their child’s teacher and monitor their progress. While finding time to discuss their children’s education can be harder today than ever before, there are some ways that a parent can stay better connected with their children’s teacher.
One of the best ways for a parent to stay connected with their children’s education is through a new application called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is an online application and portal that provides parents, teachers, students, and administrators with the ability to communicate in a more convenient manner than ever before. The application allows a teacher to post as much information about the classroom and educational process as they want. Many teachers use the application to post class schedules, report cards, recent grades and progress reports, and upcoming homework assignments. A teacher to take and post photos of the class, which can then allow the app to work as a virtual yearbook, can also use it.
Parents and students also enjoy the application because it provides for a great form of communication. Parents and students can connect with each other and teachers through either the direct messaging program or through open message boards. This allows for a more efficient way to share information and ideas.
Thus far, the ClassDojo application has been very popular with users and schools. The application today is used in some capacity at over 85,000 different schools across the country. While it has been very popular with schools and all stakeholders involved, it has also caught the eye of investors. ClassDojo recently was able to raise $21 million in venture capital from outside investors. The company will use the capital that they raised to hire new talent, look for more ways to expand and use the application, and to market its use more heavily. Investors are encouraged by the company because of the great service it provides and the incredible market penetration potential that is has.
