A school is a place where teaching and learning process takes place. The teacher teaches and thereafter assesses the students to know whether they have grasped what they have been taught. The results of the test are thereafter recorded for the purposes of communicating the students’ progress to their parents or guardians. However, some of the students tend to be mischievous and cook up their results before they reach their parents. The parents end up obtaining false results which are misleading. In addition to that, the teachers may want to communicate with parents about matters arising pertaining to their children and may be unable due to problems in communication.
Fortunately, technology has helped in the innovation of an app known as ClassDojo. ClassDojo is an app that was formed by Sam Choundry and Liam Dion in 2011 for the purpose of facilitating communication in the classroom. The app has been useful in the teaching and learning process whereby it has helped in teachers and parents to share reports about the students’ performance and about everything that is going on in the classroom. The app has been translated to about 35 languages and this has enabled it to help many people in many countries. It is popularly used in most of the schools in the United States.
Because of this unique quality, the app has gained a lot of popularity and appreciation from many people, especially by teachers and parents. ClassDojo has its headquarters located in San Francisco, California. The company has recorded a very fast growth since the app was founded. Months after its formation, the app had already garnered about 3.5 million users from different countries where most of the users where teachers and students. It was soon able to acquire funds that facilitated more growth of the company.
ClassDojo soon became a huge company and soon made a platform that even the people using native languages would be able to use. The app has facilitated the airing of important educational videos which have helped students build up their knowledge. The app also offers a platform for students to interact and learn from each other. It is without a doubt that ClassDojo has really brought a positive impact in education.
