ClassDojo is a communication platform more or less like a virtue classroom where teachers help parents to share in the environment of their kids in schools through providing resources in form of videos, messages and photos. The platform is a software helping teachers to share progressive ideas in education like for instance personalized learning and SEL in classroom in an easier effective way that student love.
Established by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, the platform is like a community comprising teachers, students and parents connected by a shared belief of improving the art of learning together. The mission of the company is to offer to the communities of teacher, students and parents the power to change the perspective of education from the ground up to each and every classroom in the world.
ClassDojo source of income was originally from the teachers themselves. In the year 2011, the company’s was sponsored by ImagineK12, a program that funded startup education initiatives. One year later, ClassDojo was offered $1.7 million by a group of investors including Ron Conway, General catalyst, Paul graham, Lerer Ventures and Kapor main. The company has continually expanded in various countries with its headquarters situated at San Francisco California.
Recently, ClassDojo launched a new tool on its platform, the StoryThis is an offering dedicated to rationalize communication between parents and teachers. The tool will eliminate the usage of websites and newsletter that teachers are required to create, every time they want to update parents about what their kids have been doing in classrooms. The software feature has been designed to be an app running on Android and iPhone operating system platforms as well as on any web browser.
Available in beta version, Class Story Software aims to register more than 60,000 teachers and will be available to the entire public. The feature will privatize communications between teachers and parents. Teachers around the world will be able to post texts and photos to class feeds, which automatically will be shared to connected parents. This will allow the parent to stay involved with their child’s education, getting reliable and relevant information right on their phones (facilitating engagement).
ClassDojo believes that the safety of their students is in their heart and since traditional websites are not secure enough for educational interactions, then it’s the high-tech and quality tools like Class Story that will help solve the problem.
