ClassDojo is on its way to helping even more parents connect with their children’s teachers. In the second phase of ClassDojo’s fundraising campaign, ClassDojo has raised twenty one million dollars, which will go to the further empowerment of teachers, students, and parents.
The way most people do it is that parents meet with their children’s teachers once, twice, or three times a year. Often, parents are busy during the rest of the year with work and family obligations. It is difficult for them to keep up with how exactly their children are doing in school. Often, these parents would come to the parent teacher conference once or twice a year and be surprised by the report that was given to them. That’s why ClassDojo was created.
ClassDojo is an app that helps parents connect with their children’s teachers on a daily basis. The ones who founded it are Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don. They will be using the money that was raised to help figure out how ClassDojo can help out parents with their children at home as well. Instead of just being able to connect with their children’s teachers and being able to receive reports of how their children are doing, the money will be used to help develop methods that will enable parents to use the time they have with their children at home to guide the conversations in a way that will facilitate their children’s future progress at school.
There are many ways that teachers can connect with parents and send them updates and reports by using the ClassDojo app. One way is to send daily schedule activities with a report of what the children will be doing at school that day. Teachers can even take pictures of their students using their smartphone and send them to the parents. This means that a teacher can take a photo of a child reaching a milestone or specific achievement and then send it to the parent.
ClassDojo was actually founded in 2011. They founded it because of the lack that existed for such a project. People were developing programs that would allow students to study on electronic devices and take electronic tests, but nobody created such a community that allowed teachers and parents to connect.
Now, ClassDojo is used by more than eighty five thousand schools across the United States, including some of the largest public schools. It empowers a huge amount of parents.
