Millions of people around the world do a large portion of their communicating through messaging apps. This trend has made its way into the classroom and apps like ClassDojo are changing the way people think about managing the classroom. ClassDojo has become one of the world’s biggest platforms that connect students, teachers and parents. What began as a simple startup is now huge around the world.
ClassDojo recently made news when it was revealed the company has raised more than thirty million dollars in funding. A joint venture known as Series C will be responsible for expanding the company’s free application to include a new service called Beyond School. This new part to the application will be loaded with new features including the ability for parents to become more involved in the motivational and mindfulness parts of the app. Companies working together with ClassDojo on this project include GSV, SignalFire and Uncork Capital.
Beyond School is a departure from years of free service ClassDojo has provided. It is a natural extension of the work they have done thus far. It helps to meet the needs of both teachers and parents. ClassDojo is committed to making learning beneficial for all parties involved.
