Parents are usually busy at home, and they rarely celebrate their kids’ achievements at school. ClassDojo will change this situation. They recently announced that they would add a student story section to their app. Students upload videos and photos of their work throughout the day, and parents can see the progress. ClassDojo co-founder and chief product officer Liam Don hopes that more parental visits to student work will lead to more intense conversations with children. He hopes that parents will be more interested in their children. Now, they can ask you more specific questions about the activity, instead of the usual questions about parenting at school and the typical unanswered questions from their kids.
Teachers believe that the “student story” function will also benefit students who can see their work and be proud of the job done. They will also see their growth over the year. Parents can also easily understand the activities in the classroom. When students enjoy the tour or work on special projects, they can upload photos. Teachers can share classroom equipment, such as iPads, with students.
With the help of QR codes, students can log in to their ClassDojo accounts and upload their work. The teacher can easily approve the work, and once endorsed, the parents can see the student’s story. The key is to ensure that children receive the quality education that parents expect. As with all relationships between two parties, communication is also necessary.
ClassDojo uses this technology to create a communication infrastructure that can bring positive results to all relevant personnel. Since messaging applications are becoming more popular, the application is very suitable for the education field.
The application can run on GSV and SignalFire as well as General Catalyst and Uncork Capital. These essential programs run the application by ensuring that ClassDojo is a free application (unlike all applications and websites that require you to enter credit card credentials activated after the free trial period ends) and earning money through an item called “beyond the school” service.
