Discover the company with a passion for education sector

In the year 2001, Lian Don and Chaudhry united to form ClassDojo. They decided to put the company’s head office in San Francisco, CA. The aim of the organization was to enhance the lives of the student’s teachers and the parents. It intended to make the education sector more enjoyable.

 

They developed a mobile App that they hoped to be of great value to all the persons in the industry. It would increase the awareness of the parents about the day to day school activities. The App would also make the parents have a chance to monitor the progress of his students activates. He also would enjoy the benefits of contacting the teachers regularly. It is important as he could get information about any meeting and events in the school. To the students, the app would provide them with the required attention from both the parents and the teachers. They would be able to post the highs and downs in each day. It would make the teachers as well as parents understand them and thus offer help when needed. To the teachers, it made it easier to have regular communication with the parents and thus shift from the old model where there was maybe a single meeting in the school.

 

In making the ClassDojo app even better, the founders have embarked on the exercise of adding other features that could enable the parents to make such activities as shopping and many other requirements that are meant to enhance their lives. The App is also to be branded with the features that will allow fees payment. At the same time, they hope to maintain the high level of privacy to the users.

Class Dojo: Creating school communities that work

It can be said that in the “days of old,” teachers would communicate with the parents of their students in one of two methods; a letter home, or a phone call. It is sad to say, that despite the advances in technology and resources available to the educational community, many teachers still resort to such outdated methods of communication. Enter Class Dojo. This educational platform is a simple and free resource available to both the teacher and parent. ClassDojo helps create community not only in the classroom, but at home as well. So how does ClasDojo work? In its most basic form, ClassDojo is a tool that helps teachers encourage their students behavior with praise, but as well, helps redirect students whom are off task. The ClassDojo platform allows students to create their own individual avatar that the teacher then utilizes to help encourage classroom culture. This ClassDojo feature really help the student “own their own growth.” The teacher then displays a variety of praises or comments that the student receives based on what they are doing for that particular day. These tasks are then tallied up into points which the student can then see and quantify as a simple numerical growth. In this basic usage of ClassDojo the teacher can accomplish amazing growth they never before saw. The more advance features of ClassDojo however, help share the success of the students with their home life. The possibilities for successful communication are truly endless with ClassDojo.
