ClassDojo Achieves Success And Starts Looking Towards Making Money

Since its founding in 2011, ClassDojo has rapidly become a necessity in a large percentage of classrooms all over the country and also in places around the world. More than two-thirds of all schools have at least one teacher in the school using the app, in this country alone.

A simple app, ClassDojo completely changes the way classes are taught and how communication between teachers and parents work. Teachers can post pictures that parents can see and they can have a better understanding of what is happening in the classroom. CEO of ClassDojo, Sam Chaudhary has been voted as one of Inc.’s 2015 30 Under 30 and believes that if one can change what happens inside and around classrooms, education can experience changes.

The app’s claim to fame was its point system that allowed teacher to reward students for their good behavior, but since then has become so much more than that. It creates a connection and a community in which teachers, students and parents and can communicate. This communication helps to create a better classroom environment, and happier students.

The app resembles a different colored Facebook where teachers can post pictures and information about their lessons and parents can comment on them. At one time, ClassDojo even borrowed an idea from Snapchat, introducing student stories that allowed the students themselves to post pictures and videos about what happened at school that day.

Now that ClassDojo has great success with connecting parents, teachers, and students, the company is ready for the next step. Now they have their eye on monetizing the service. While ClassDojo has no plans on selling any advertising, they are contemplating the idea of selling educational content. With excellent distribution capabilities, the company is looking at the possibility of being able to spread educational videos to audiences on levels that have been before been accomplished.

ClassDojo’s mission is to transform the education of every child around the globe. They plan to connect students, parents, and teachers in each and every classroom. The company believes that not every classroom is the same and that every classroom should have the power to create the classroom that is best for them. ClassDojo believes that if you give good people an easy way to do the right thing, marvelous things will occur.

Their app is used in 90 percent of K-8 schools in the country and is used in an astounding 180 countries. It is translated and used in over 35 languages and received Series B funding in 2015. Over 20 percent of the staff at ClassDojo has teaching backgrounds and one-third of American children ages 5-14 have learned growth mindset and empathy using the ClassDojo app.

ClassDojo Helps With The Development Of Empathy

Empathy is a very important quality to have in people. Unfortunately, a lot of people may not necessarily learn how to develop that quality. Fortunately, ClassDojo has a program that may help children develop empathy. This is one good thing about ClassDojo. They are not successful because they do all the right things. They actually go above and beyond and look forward when it comes to providing solutions for their clients. One example is in Jennifer Ellison’s class, when students were paired off, there was one student who was autistic. The other students came to her with ideas on how to make him feel comfortable.

One thing that is important about education is that the student feels comfortable in the environment so that he could learn better. If one is always faced with anxiety, then that could get in the way of his education. However, with a supportive environment, one could achieve a lot. One could also learn to stand on his own two feet.

Among the things that the class has done in order to help erase the anxiety of the student is come up with ways to randomly assign reading partners. For Ellison, this has been a very rewarding experience because it shows that she is reaching these children and helping them develop the needed qualities to make life better for others.

One thing that could be said for ClassDojo is that it is the latest development for social media. For one thing, adults already have Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. However, this is for people to interact with their peers. ClassDojo allows people to interact with teachers, and children. This also deepens the connection and makes sure that the parents are also involved in the growth of their children.

ClassDojo is definitely going to help children develop and create a productive and successful life. Not only are elementary school students and teachers experiencing the benefits of this app, but high school students are also getting to experience the benefits. ClassDojo is definitely going to change the educational system for the better. It is not only presenting people with education, but also helping people develop care for one another.
