One of the many challenges of the modern American classroom is trying to foster a clear channel of communication between the teachers, the parents, and the students. One innovative tech company has created an app that facilitates the perfect communication platform in schools. That company, Classdojo is leading a ground-up change in the way schools empower teachers, students as well as parents.
one of the secrets to Classdojo’s success has been it’s CEO ability to listen to parents and teachers before the development of the app. By building the platform around the specific needs of the school, Classdojo’s CEO Sam Chaudhary was able to bring a product to market that really helped school districts. Today, Classdojo is one of the leading platforms in the emerging EdTech movement.
So what does Classdojo do? The app allows teachers to create channels of communication between themselves as the students as well as the teachers. For instance, the app can help the teacher create randomized groups for breakout sessions. The teacher can also transmit specific instructions to students regarding a given project. Additionally, the app can help students create a voice for themselves by allowing them to upload photos and videos to share with the class.
Perhaps the greatest benefit a school can derive from the Classdojo app is its ability to create a community between the teacher, the students, and the parents. With everyone on the same page, so to speak, schools can better help their students achieve a given set of goals. Classdojo can be easily understood and used by the youngest student yet robust enough to handle the needs of any teacher.
So how well is Classdojo doing? Today the Classdojo app is used in 90% of Kindergarten through 8th-grade classrooms in the United States. It is one of the most popular platforms used in any school. As the company continues to grow, Classdojo will work towards positively affecting millions upon millions of students across the United States.
