Classdojo is a classroom communication application whose makers are based in San Francisco, California. The application was first launched in 2011 and its main mission was to make sure that the link between the teacher, students and the parents in the classroom environment was strengthened through easier communication. The application has been praised by many as one of the best ways to follow up on the progress of the student in the classroom and also during the co-curricular activities.
The $21 Million improvement means that the parents will be in a position to communicate with the teacher throughout the year. Parents will always be up to date on what their children are experiencing in the school environment, which is different from the surprises that they sometimes get from the parent teacher meetings that are organized once every term. The application, which was founded by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary got the additional round in 2015. This will help them figure out which additions can be made to the application to make it better for the parents. The application can be used both during the normal school hours and at home.
The main purpose of the application is to be a guide for the communication that happens between the parents and their children in connection to academics. The application is used by teachers to make the classroom and learning related activities known to the parents. The application is already being used in 85000 schools in the country and is still expanding their reach. The people that are using the application have children between the Kindergarten and the 8th grade.
Other features that will be part of the application include transactional features that will enable the parents carry out functions such as making payments for activities such as field trips through their mobile phones.
