Class Dojo is one of the leading educational platforms on the market today, seeing use in more than 90 percent of all schools in the United States within grades K-8. Unlike most other educational tools aimed at young students, Class Dojo is focused on communication and greatly expanding on what is capable within the normal classroom environment. With Class Dojo, students are able to stay connected with each other through a special app and participate in a unique Class Story tailored to each classroom. Parents are also able to use this great app to stay in contact with their child as well as their teachers throughout the day. This allows parents with busy schedules to stay on top of their child’s schoolwork and classroom activities.
Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don started up Class Dojo in 2011 and in less than a decade they are already finding their way into schools around the world. Within Class Dojo’s app, students are able to share videos, among other things, but this is not limited to specific regions. Students from around the world can share videos with each other to show what it is like learning and living in other countries around the globe. This is a special experience for young students and is one of the few ways to help teach important life lessons in the classroom. Allowing students from different cultures to socially connect builds their communication skills and creates an understanding between people of all different backgrounds.
Vastly improving communication for students allows them to feel better about their schoolwork and find more fun in the learning process, especially when parents are able to stay involved. Parents that take the time to help their children at home build their confidence as a student and help motivate them to excel in the classroom. Thanks to one of Class Dojo’s leading features, being free, pretty much everyone can participate in this great program with a simple invitation from a classroom teacher. Once invited, students are able to set up their own profiles and unique avatars to stand out on the platform without using any personal information, keeping the platform entirely safe.
