In the good old days the only way teachers, parents and their children who are busy attending school, had only two ways to communicate with each other. First one would be a phone call from the school and the second would be when the teacher sent a letter or a note with the child to be given to the parents. Not so anymore. In this age of smartphones and apps, it is possible for everyone in the above example to be constantly in touch with each other. This is through an app called Class dojo and it allows a three-way conversation between the three parties, always letting each one in the loop of the day’s events.
Class dojo gives users the freedom to use photos, text as well as videos of the day’s happenings. This gives the users a feeling of a team effort as the children make their way through school. When one thinks about this for a second it is truly amazing. In the past, in our younger days, whenever we had a good or a bad experience for that matter, there were times that we felt the wish to share it immediately. With Class Dojo, this is now possible.
In a few short years, the app has gone on to become very successful. It is used at close to 90% of classes that go from kindergarten to 8th grade. Not only that, it is now available in 180 countries. It is also compatible with 35 languages. The people behind the design of Class Dojo are former as well as active teachers. The app has also managed to garner plenty of awards and accolades from the press. Including the prestigious “30 under 30” award from Forbes Magazine.
