In their second round of fundraising, ClassDojo has been able to raise over $20 million. ClassDojo is a technology company that is able to connect teachers to their student’s parents. This allows teachers to be able to communicate with every parent consistently about their child’s activities, as well as their social and behavioral development.
Having this easy way to communicate throughout the school years means that parents are able to stay more involved in what their children are doing. It will also help them know how their kids are behaving at school. Which means that there are no surprised incidents when it comes time for parent-teacher meetings.
Through the app, teachers will be able to set up activities schedules that can be seen by parents. They are also able to send pictures or videos out to the parents that show off their students latest artwork.
The app was also designed to create a positive culture among teachers, parents, and students. It can also be used to encourage students who are hard working, being kind to others, or anything else. It also lets the students be able to share what they have learned.
ClassDojo was founded in 2011 by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Dom. They saw that many other education tech companies were only focusing on grade books, digital curriculum, and testing platforms. It was then that they saw a need for an easy-to-use app that creates a culture among teachers, students, and parents. This app does have some small competition for other tech companies. But it is used by teachers in over 80,000 private and charter schools across the United States.
This tech company graduated from the education tech accelerator, Imagine K12, which is now a part of Y Combinator. The co-founders at ClassDojo, have spent the last year growing their team. This has allowed them to be able to understand what type of content and features are useful to parents.
Class Dojo can be used on iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, as well as any computer. The app was also designed to include a high privacy level to everyone who is using it
