ClassDojo is an application which has focused on connecting teachers and parents, teachers, and students. While before communication between the parent and teacher during parent-teacher conferences, now it is able to be on a constant, daily basis. Before the things posted have been entirely by the teacher and the responding parents. Now students are being given a voice by ClassDojo. In July, ClassDojo added a feature called Student Stories which allows students to added images and videos to their ClassDojo to be shared with their families.
This means they will be able to enter anything that is class related such as a poem, story, classwork, or an essay; or even a video of a some class project or play. The possibilities are almost endless. To do this, the students don’t haven’t to know any personal login specifics. They just have to scan the class QR code.
Teachers who use ClassDojo love the idea because it makes the class more student-centric and it will increase family involvement in their child’s education. Liam Don, cofounder and chief product officer at ClassDojo, says his company was inspired with this idea after extensive research in which they interviewed a wide range of teachers and parents. Teachers have already been allowed to show videos and photos of their class and class projects. This will allow parents to see stuff specifically about their child with the material actually chosen and posted by their child.
Many teachers love ClassDojo so much that they loudly proclaim that it is going to be drastically revolutionizing education in the future. It is giving an unprecedented meeting ground for teachers, parents, and students. It is bringing these three groups into a community of shared conviction and passion for education. ClassDojo is so popular worldwide that it has become the fastest growing educational technology company in the world. The ClassDojo team is made up of a network of engineers, designers, and educators from all over the world.
