Education is an essential element in our day to day lives, as it is the way to gain experience, knowledge, and skills. We all trust that education is the key to success. Technology has been improving and upgrading as the days’ move, and the education sector has not been left behind. ClassDojo is one of the learning technologies, and it has raised $21 million in a Series B from place to location of project financing for the technology that is designed to connect teachers, students and parents for the purpose of constant communication about the student’s activities and behavioral, and social progress in school. Parents can see and discuss with the teachers about their children’s behavior and activities throughout the year as well as the day something that was not impossible to do to during the once per semester meetings organized by the school.
The organization closed for the end of the year in late 2015 and according to the founders Sam and Liam; they are planning to use the capital for expanding their team and coming up with new features and content that will assist parents to not only use it for school purposes but also at home. One of the co-founders Sam mentioned that their original idea is to help parents to continue the development of their children at home.
ClassDojo helps tutors to make a program of activities that are known to parents on a daily basis. The app also helps the teachers take photos, and videos that are sent to parents for them to see how their children participate and work in school activities.
ClassDojo is a classroom communication app that is intended to assist students to produce social-emotional abilities while creating a modest way of communication between the teachers, parents and students for the activities carried out in school. ClassDojo was founded in 2011 by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don and its Headquarters in San Francisco California.
The founders of ClassDojo noticed the gap that was there in the creation of education technology in the formation of digital curriculum, testing platforms as well as grade books. The founders took advantage of the fact that there were no companies that offered a welcoming and easy to use app that created a value of communication between students, educators, and parents. The app is being used by more than 8500 schools in the United States including private, chartered as well as the largest public schools in the country. The company is one of the largest growing education technology firms in the country and it is aiming to distribute the app to more teachers and even globally. Their dedicated team is made up of designers, educators as well as engineers who are devoted to seeing the company grow.
