Classdojo announced that they have raised an additional $21 million in venture funding in support of their classroom community app. The app allows parents, teachers, and students to communicate throughout the year which helps parents see how their children are learning and what they are experiencing in class. Another benefit of the app is that it helps parents talk to their children at home about what they’re learning and gives them ways to support it.
Classdojo gives teachers the ability to let parents know the classroom schedule and they can send text, pictures, and video to the parents of what their child’s work looks like or how they are participating in class. The app is being used to create a strong connection between teachers, parents, and students throughout not just the United States but now across the world. There are teachers in almost two in three elementary and middle schools who are now using Classdojo. More on linkedin.com
The co-founders of Classdojo are Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don. Liam Don said that that with the new funding they are looking to add staff and expand the capabilities of the app. Some of the features they have discussed adding are custom yearbooks and lessons that students can access at home. Classdojo, which is based in San Francisco, has raised over $31 million so far from venture capitalists. Source: en.wikipedia.org
Classdojo recently partnered with Stanford University in order to teach children about “growth mindset”. This partnership will result in a five-part series of animations to be used by teachers to explain this concept.
