ClassDojo is the Education App You Wish You Had When You Were a Student

ClassDojo is a communication app for teachers, students and parents that is on a mission to transform the classroom and transform education. This app allows for teachers and students to share pictures and messages throughout the day to keep parents informed, and to keep everyone engaged and active in the student’s education. It goes beyond information sharing, and seeks to activate a give-and-take so that students and parents can participate and have a voice in the classroom. The app is easy to use and available across many computer and smartphone platforms so that no one loses out on staying in touch.

Although ClassDojo is already used in 80% of K-8 schools across the United States, and in more than 180 countries worldwide, it is still growing. If your child’s classroom doesn’t use this app, ClassDojo has presentations and videos to help introduce the app to your school and bring more people on board. The more people who are on board, the more interactive and successful the educational experience will be. For those who are wary, you can rest assured that your contact information is kept private through the app. Student and parent information on the app is kept secure, so you don’t need to worry about your child’s privacy or well-being. Teachers, students and parents have control over information posted and can delete anything they don’t want to stay on the app. For those who become inactive, information is automatically deleted after 12 months. Strict security measures, compliance standards, and audits ensure information is guarded and used responsibly.

Once ClassDojo is set up each student is equipped to engage with and feel a sense of ownership with their education. Teachers can reward students for positive behavior throughout the day, and videos and tutorials provided by ClassDojo can help students to grow in social skills and values. ClassDojo goes beyond communication and seeks to change education by ensuring each student gets the support they need to grow and flourish.
