ClassDojo is a software application that detects and manages student’s behavior in the classroom and provides informative lessons and ideas to students. It was founded in 2011 by Sam Chaudhary and his co-partner Liam Don.
Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don met at an entrepreneur meeting in Cambridge, England, where they shared their idea on starting ClassDojo. They both had informative expertise in the education field, where Sam taught teens in Abu Dhabi for 20 hours, whereas Don was undertaking his Ph.D. studies in computer science. In a short period of three months, they both resided in Silicon Valley to begin their tech company with approximately $20,000.
While at Silicon Valley, they mostly spent their time taking questionnaires and associating with hundreds of teachers. Their very first project was used in more than 35,000 classrooms in less than 12 weeks, whereby teachers were allowed to provide feedback to students. ClassDojo consists of a Facebook page that will enable teachers to share photos and videos taken in the classrooms.
Additionally, a section allows students and the school faculty to post informative stories, news, and projects. It has a lot of impressive positive reviews, especially from parents and teachers. It has also partnered with Stanford, Harvard, and Yale students to create a video-discussion web page to teach about determination and mindful educating content. ClassDojo has been interpreted into different native languages, 35 languages to be precise.
It is estimated to be used by more than ten million students and more than 5 million parents. It’s a free platform that Sam Chaudhary, the C.E.O., stated to be a considerable challenge. According to Sam Chaudhary, students and teachers would not be in a position to purchase a subscription. ClassDojo also consists of a section whereby teachers can provide consistent feedback to students and parents.
