ClassDojo raised $21 million in a round of Series B venture funding. The tech connects students’ parents to educators and it helps them communicate about students’ activities and behavioral development at school.
Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, co-founders of ClassDojo, said the company closed the round back in 2015 and the capital was being used to grow their team and to figure out what features parents would find useful.
Chaudhary said the idea behind the communication platform is to help parents guide conversations at home and to enhance or support the development their kids are doing in school.
Teachers can use the app to snap and send videos and photos of their students’ latest works or activities that they have participated in. However, ClassDojo does have competition from companies such as Kickboard, FreshGrade and Nearpod to name a few. For now, the company is staying focused on distributing its app to more parents and teachers.
ClassDojo was founded in 2011 and it is a communications app that is designed to connect students, teachers and parents. They can share photos, messages and videos throughout the school day. The app can also be used to so people can work together as a team and bring ideas to life in both the classroom and in homes. The founders of the app are Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary.
The company is quickly becoming one of the most well-known education companies in the world. The app is used in many K-8 schools in the United States and in over 170 other countries. ClassDojo has a team of designers, engineers and educators from around the globe. The team has backgrounds in charter schools, public schools, as well as from companies such as Google, Facebook and Airbnb.
ClassDojo’s mission is to provide parents, teachers and students a way to create amazing classrooms. The company’s vision includes transforming education for kids around the world and they plan on doing this by connecting students, parents and teachers in every classroom and to work with them daily to help them bring the best ideas into their schools. n
