ClassDojo Is Reaching Across The World DueAugust 21, 2019 - Author: steph
Reaching more than 10 million children, ClassDojo is the ideal educational app. Why? Because ClassDojo used about 20,000 teachers feedback to help create the version available today. It also continues to receive feedback and improve. It has been translated into a total of 35 languages, making it accessible to 180 countries.
ClassDojo was started by two young entrepreneurs: Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary. After spending a month interviewing teacher to assess classroom needs, they launched the first version of ClassDojo. It spread like wildfire, reaching 35,000 classrooms in just 12 weeks.
This app lets teachers reward students by giving points. They can also take away points for bad behavior. ClassDojo also sports a feed like that of Facebook where teachers can share pictures and videos from their classroom. Therefore, helping parents to feel more connected and involved with what is going on in the classroom.
Students enjoy the app as well. They each have a cartoon monster for an avatar, and the rewards for good behavior keep them enjoying a calm classroom. ClassDojo also has personal-growth videos for the student to better themselves with. These videos have the mascots of ClassDojo, fun monsters, teaching the children.
Although there are some competitors out there, ClassDojo is keeping the top spot due to it’s broad range of focus, and fast innovations. Keeping the teachers as the main consultants makes sure that ClassDojo is as useful in the classroom as possible. With new ideas coming all the time, it will be interesting to see how this app grows.
