Time and technology keep moving forward, while the rest of the world plays catch-up. One of the most exciting things about moving forward is the fact that a communication platform can play an intricate part in the lives of your children and your children’s teachers. The platform is called ClassDojo, and it is one of the most successful resources to hit classrooms since textbooks.
What Is ClassDojo?
ClassDojo is a platform where teachers, parents, and students can find an interactive connection as well as empowerment. This is done through a series of services that ClassDojo provides to the teachers, students, and parents. For example, the teacher is given the opportunity to make announcements that every student or parent can read.
The parent and the teacher can communicate privately as well, not to mention the fact that this communication platform can translate messages into 35 different languages. ClassDojo is about creating a community amongst students, parents, and teachers where everyone will feel more involved. This push towards active participate is key towards creating a positive culture with the classroom, school, and parents. One way that ClassDojo is achieving this is by sharing classroom videos and photographs, making everyone feel more involved.
The Impact that ClassDojo Might Have on Schools
The truth is this communications platform is creating revolutionary ground-up change that will be changing the way that teachers interact with parents. The change is happening quickly enough to say that 2 in 3 schools are already using it. In fact, ClassDojo was able to raise 21 million dollars just make the ClassDojo app with the promise that it will make parent-teacher meetings completely obsolete.
Both parents and teachers are excited about the idea for different reasons. For one, parents who work know that making time for a parent-teacher conference is very hard. Teachers, on the other hand, feel a little better knowing that they will not have to stay at work hours after school has closed when they can be at home. Both will use the app to communicate throughout the year regarding a child’s progression in school or a specific task a child completed that day. The ability to communicate constantly will eliminate the need for a parent-teacher conference.
Of course, this is just one of changes that you can expect with ClassDojo but who knows what else might change.
Just so teachers know, ClassDojo is making sure that the communication platform stays free for them, no matter what. Parents will be able to pay for additional services as they are introduced to the platform.
