Class Dojo is a company that is relatively new on the market in comparison to other companies that have been putting out educational programs and software. However, Class Dojo is trying to bring a new tool to the market that has long been missing, which is communication. Their educational platform is highly based on improving the communication that is possible between parents, teachers, and students in the school environment. With the Class Dojo tool, parents and teachers are finally able to stay in contact with each other on a daily basis to make sure things are going smoothly and the parent knows what is going on at all times. Parents are also able to look in on their child’s performance in class as well as their behavior.
Teachers are able to upload pictures and videos as well as stories, notes, and more based on what happens each day in the classroom. In this manner, they can save all the special classroom moments over the year, that students can access through the Class Dojo app. Never before were there so many possibilities in schooling with tools like these, and they are coming a long way to change the schooling environment for the better everywhere.
Teachers that have been using the app have expressed how great it is and how it has helped them in the classroom with engaging their students and getting them to participate. With more involvement from their parents, students are more likely to get involved and do their school work. The founders of Class Dojo, Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, expressed this as a primary reason that they founded the company and made the platform, as there were many teachers in schools all around the country that believe the communication issues are a big problem in schools today. Since launching in 2011, Class Dojo has been widely successful and come a long way in improving school communities around the country.
There are many who believe Class Dojo may be able to change the way education is seen around the world in the future, and so far it has done an amazing job for students all across the United States, being used in more than two thirds of all schools. The basis of the platform will always remain free for anyone to use, and everyone can start today.
