ClassDojo is a new, easy, and exciting resource application to keep parent’s in the loop of what’s going on in their child’s classroom. It can even inform them, and remind them of important school events, like school plays, graduation etc. Most of all, it allows parents to communicate with the teacher fast and efficiently.
For many years, parents have always been worried about their children in the classroom while the parent is working hard on their job to earn a living for the family. In the past, parents have had to take off work in the middle of the day to go to the school to solve a mere issue that could have been solved by a communication application. This application is finally available. ClassDojo allows the parent to see what is going on in the classroom in real time if needed. This saves the parent time, gas, and money.
In addition, parents have always wondered how their child was progressing in learning daily, rather than having to wait weeks to see. Now with ClassDojo, parents can see the daily learning progress of their child. Therefore, if there is a problem with a subject, or behavior, the misbehaving can be corrected immediately that day by the parent. The parent does not have to visit the school to solve the issue.
Safety has recently become a concern for parents about school settings due to attacks on schools. Now parents can receive immediate alerts from the teacher, if something is not right at the school. With the ClassDojo App, now parents can have a sense of relief, because they know that they have instant communication with the teacher and their child.
Talk Fusion is one of those companies that is on the winning track each and every single day they are operating for business. They are not big on taking it easy, relaxing, or resting on past success.

After all, that is how they have had the success they have had so far, and they are not about to stop at the moment. 2016 was a year for Talk Fusion that they won’t forget anytime soon, and they shouldn’t.
It was the year they won two awards from Technology Marketing Corporation. According to the posted link, they are considered an integrated media giant. Whenever praise like that is thrown around about someone, it means they are taken seriously and when they speak people listen.

They live and breathe with it because they have seen it first-hand, and the results speak for themselves.
This award is further proof of the important work they are doing and why they do it. They know the value of it, because they are so entrenched in it, but now other people are getting a chance to see for themselves.
Shrugging shoulders, one word answers, or silence are typical responses from kids when asked what they did at school that day. Parents who want to glean more information may have to get creative and ask their child different questions like if they helped anyone, learned something new, or did anything fun. A typical after school conversation between a parent and child may give the parent some highlights about their day, but usually leaves the parent feeling like they really don’t know what happened at school. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way that kids can show their parents what they do at school on a daily or even hourly basis? Chances are, that information is already accessible or will be coming soon.
Class Dojo, available in 2 out of 3 schools and 90% of school districts throughout the U.S., is a free app that can be downloaded on your computer or smartphone. Available since 2011 as a teacher and parent communication platform, they have recently added a way for students to participate in the dialogue with the Student Stories feature. Kids in school can take pictures of projects or assignments they are working on and upload them to the Class Dojo site. Throughout the year, they can create a digital portfolio, and parents are notified whenever a new piece is submitted. Parents only have access to their own child’s work. This new feature should be fully available in the fall and has been well received in trial studies by parents, teachers and students alike.
In addition to Student Stories, there is a Class Story and School Story feature where teachers can share updates or pictures of what the class is doing as a whole. With all of the Class Dojo features, parents can get a real life glimpse of what is going on in their student’s classroom. This knowledge can help spark more productive conversations between parents and kids, creating a ground-up change in enhancing parent and child interactions at home pertaining to school experiences. So instead of asking what your child did in school today, you can ask specific questions about things you know they are working on, which will provide a more meaningful learning experience for both the child and yourself.
