It is often said that the best way to sell a product or a brand is to use it yourself, and really make it a part of your lifestyle. This can be said of ClassDojo co-founder and creator, Sam Chaudhary, who created the app with his best friend after working within classrooms for several years. There are many issues that face education environments, and many ideas out there that teachers themselves have. Chaudhary used his own research, and then reached out to teachers for their concerns about issues that they have with students and parents.
At the top of everyone’s list is the issues of community and communication, the development of which both relies on the other. Chaudhary knows that in order to foster a happy and healthy learning environment between students, and teachers, there needs to be community and concern for every student, by every student. In creating his app, Chaudhary knew that teachers needed as many chances to communicate with their parents as possible, and the app provided an easy and fun way to do so without requiring huge expense.
ClassDojo is an education based app that is available to teachers and the parents of their students to use. Set up as a communication platform, the app helps create community through creating a positive culture with classrooms and schools. Security and privacy are a huge concern for teachers, parents, and schools, so a classroom specific app is better able to connect everyone so that items and information regarding the goings on in the classroom can be shared between all parties. The app is free for teachers to use, but there are additional products and features within the app that are available at a reasonable price.
The app has been widely used and shared across classrooms and school districts, both within the UK, the United States, and now globally. At present, the ClassDojo app creators have indicated that 2 in 3 schools are using the app year over year, proving that the app has value for teachers. Not only does the platform bring together parents and teachers, but it helps create ground-up change that can completely change the atmosphere between parents and teachers in the student’s best interest. It is this change in education that the company is most interested in creating and fostering, and new ideas and ways to share information are slowly being introduced within the platform.
