Bridging the Gap: ClassDojo Connecting Parents and Teachers

One major issue in the field of education is how parents and teachers communicate with one another. ClassDojo, a messaging technology company, is bridging this gap.

ClassDojo was founded in 2011 by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don. Chaudhary and Don both felt frustrated that teachers could not provide parents with in-depth information or analysis about a student’s progress. For them, one parent teacher conference a month was not enough.

The ClassDojo app works by allowing the teacher to provide parents a daily breakdown of the class activities. During class, the parent receives messages directly from the teacher regarding the child’s class room behavior, conduct, and work ethic. This real time information keeps parents engaged with their child’s academic development and builds a better relationship between the parent and the teacher.

The expansion of ClassDojo over the years is seen as a positive sign in the education tech industry. Since 2011, the use of the app grew by 95 percent with one out of every six families in United States primary schools using the app. The valuation of the ClassDojo company is also seeing a rapid increase; so far in 2019, ClassDojo raised $35 million. The app is now available in over 180 countries outside the United States.
