The modern school system is not actually all that modern. The same principles have applied to the classic classroom set up for over a century now. With the rise in technological advancements, there is now finally an innovation to the classroom environment. This is where ClassDojo steps in and takes the lead. ClassDojo is a communication platform for the classic educational setting that is known as the classroom.
This new and innovative approach to combine technology with education has been improving the connection between teachers, students, and parents. It also allows for the constant empowerment of concerned parents that don’t have the time to attend school functions as much as the would like to. ClassDojo is consciously creating a positive culture with classrooms and schools alike.
A recent article in “Entrepreneur.com” revealed that an entrepreneur has to be able to provide a product that will benefit the needs of the teachers and students or it will not appeal to the teachers. Only 59 percent of teachers think that the technology that they use is meeting the students need. The statistics of this are from research from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
That is only one of the many issues that ClassDojo hopes to resolve. That’s why ClassDojo is an educational technology that is actually succeeding in appealing to teachers and classrooms. It has obtain high status in the educational technology field because the co-founder Sam Chaudary is committed to listening to teachers, parents and students while developing the tech.
The result of this is the resolution to an actual need of teachers. That need is communication between teachers and parents outside of the parent-teacher conference. ClassDojo allows parents to be fully aware of their children’s progress along with the curriculum that is being taught. ClassDojo is also used by teachers to schedule activities that can be known to parents on a daily basis. The app can be used throughout the day to send pictures and videos to the parents in real time. The parents are able to see their children’s work and participation in certain activities.
