ClassDojo has a mission to better the education for every child in the world. The ClassDojo app works to connect teachers, parents, and students in the classroom. The app helps individuals work together to formulate great ideas and make magnificent classrooms. ClassDojo doesn’t just use one model because then all classroom’s would be the same and wouldn’t be fit to the needs of the children. Rather this app gives the teachers, parents, and students the resources to create the best classroom that fits their needs. How ClassDojo works is it is used to share videos, pictures, and messages throughout the school day to keep everyone connected. This is a way to show activities in the classroom as well as bring new ideas into both the classroom and homes. ClassDojo is currently used in 90% of schools K-8. The makers of ClassDojo wanted the app to accessible to everybody, so the app is currently available in over 180 countries and is translated in over 35 languages. Not only is ClassDojo accessible to almost everyone, but 20% of the ClassDojo team have some form of teaching background. The app has many qualities such as: creates a positive classroom atmosphere, encourages students to use their voice in the classroom, and brings skills into the classroom setting. ClassDojo may be used on any device. It also features qualities such as digital portfolios and instant, private messaging. ClassDojo offers a back to school night presentation for parents as well as student introduction videos and student account FAQ’s.

Gone are the days of children coming home from school and mom having to ask about their child’s day with the same ease as pulling teeth. Gone are the days of the once a year parent teacher conference where parents met the teacher for a few minutes as they tired to get a feel for the person caring for their child five days a week. Welcome to the modern age, where parents and teachers can communicate daily to ensure their student is getting the best education and bridging the gap between school and home. This is the kind of world that Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary, founders of ClassDojo imagined. They have created a platform that encourages communication between the classroom and home. It is a media sharing app available on most media devices that allows the teacher to share how the day is going, what they are doing in the classroom, and even allows the teacher to shares photos with the parent so they can get a first hand look into their child’s day.
The application is now being used in almost 2 in 3 schools across the United States and is growing every day. With growing popularity comes growing demand for content. The next step in the process, naturally, is making a profit. With the growing demand for content, ClassDojo has partnered with Stanford University to put out a series of videos that would heighten the learning experience beyond the classroom and give parents the tools to continue the learning process throughout the day and not just the few hours they spend in a school building. A partnership with Harvard is already coming and more videos with broader topics are coming to ensure a rich diversity of subject matter available. Many teachers and parents alike are excited about the new ground up changes that are being made available, and in such an easy to use format. This will single handedly change the learning process, making it more accessible to students and teachers and parents.
This new bridge will bring together communities and make the dispersal of information for more wide spread than we could have ever hoped for and the potential is limitless at this point. Investors in ClassDojo are patient with this profit producing process, and for good reason. One cannot rush a process as delicate as this one, and the product is well worth the investment.
