ClassDojo Creates a Community in Schools

By | October 5, 2016

Dianne Rhodes, popularly known as Mrs. Rhodes by her students has been using the ClassDojo application for three years now. The application is easy to use, and it has completely changed the way she teaches or communicates with the parents. The application was founded several years ago, and it connects teachers, students, and parents.
According to Mrs. Rhodes, the parents using the app have proved to like the pictures posted and whatever happens in school. The application has been of great assistance, especially during the first days of school, and when a special art project is taking place. Rhodes has been teaching at Bel Aire School, California, and she says that using the app has created a community. The parents get excited watching whatever is happening in the classroom, even in their absence.

ClassDojo was founded in the year 2011, and it has spread to classrooms in the United States and other parts of the globe. Although most people believe that classrooms should only have papers, whiteboards, and pencils, the new application has changed their mindsets. The application was designed using the latest technology and offers the support needed to make classroom moments enjoyable.

The CEO of ClassDojo, Sam Chaudhary believes that if people can successfully shift everything that happens in the classes, then the education offered at the schools will change completely. The mobile application is very similar to the dark lavender Facebook.

The teachers are allowed to post pictures about the lessons they taught, and the parents have an opportunity to comment or like them. Just recently, ClassDojo decided to borrow a special feature from Snapchat. The new feature introduced Student Stories, where the students can post their photos or videos about their activities in school.

Since its introduction in the market, the application has created a positive culture at school. The teachers are now able to encourage the students in their skills and values. The students can be encouraged to be kind, work hard or help others, thanks to the application. The new app also gives the students a voice. It is now easy for students using the app to showcase and also share their learning experiences at their portfolios. The parents, on the other hand, will share special classroom moments. They will get engaged in the activities by seeing the photos and videos posted by the teachers. They will also have an opportunity to like or leave comments.
