Classroom Communication Made Simple

Posted by WA6 on

If you have kids in school, you’ll understand just how important it is to be involved in your child’s classroom life. Behavior, grades, and learning topics are just a few things that usually wait to be known until parent teacher conferences. Now there’s an app called ClassDojo that’s here to eliminate the barriers and encourage teacher, parent and student connection. This is a classroom communication platform that allows you to communicate to your child’s teacher as well as see daily activities. Their teachers can even send photos and videos directly to you with this continually growing app!

ClassDojo is working to create a community between parents and teachers, bridging the gap we’ve all known too well for far too long. Knowledge is power, and in the case, it’s the power to create a new and positive culture in classrooms and schools. So far the app is actively used by teachers in over 85,000 schools. This ranges from public schools to charter and even to private. It’s clear that teachers everywhere are falling in love with this app. The current majority of teachers that use the app are kindergarten through eighth grade.

Not only is it extremely useful, ClassDojo is extremely safe. They value all of their users, whether you’re a teacher or a parent. While they haven’t yet earned revenue, they are staying away from making profits off of their user’s data. The CTO, Liam Don, even said, “Privacy is a huge concern any time kids are involved,” and that’s what we should expect to hear from those protecting information on our children.

This communication platform is intended to keep on improving. They hope to offer premium features as well as make school payments easier. Personally, I’m always nervous handing my child a check to bring in for a school field trip. Lunch money can be another nerve wrecker! What if they lose it? Who wouldn’t be nervous? Modern technology advances focus greatly on simplifying and improving our lives. ClassDojo does just that for us, and even more importantly, for our kids too.
