ClassDojo recently announced that they have received $21 million funding to build an application that will bridge the communication gap between teachers and parents. Once it is successful, the app will make parent and teacher physical meeting a thing of the past. The funding is part of the Series B round of financial assistance to the tech company that is seeking to create a technological revolution in the country’s education sector.
The app forms a communication platform that enhances the connection between teachers, parents and students. This means that the new tech will make it possible for parents to have a real-time experience of their children’s daily learning activities without going to school physically. Through the app, teachers will now be able to post pictures of classroom activities to parents. The teacher can also record videos and share it on the app’s platform easily.
The round B Series of funding ended last year, and the company will now use the money collected to develop a team of experts to figure out additional contents and features the app should have. According to ClassDojo co-founders, the app will have a lot of features that enable parents and teachers to communicate not only during the school days but also when they are at home.
ClassDojo is a technology company that provides technical solutions to the education sector. The idea behind the formation of the company was to change how parents, teachers and students communicate by introducing applications tailored for each party. The company was co-founded by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don in 2011. Since its inception, ClassDojo has made milestone achievements in American education sector. The company now offers services to 2 in 3 American schools. Over 85,000 schools are already in its client database.
The company is not only a domestic education tech provider but a multi-national entity. It has diffused in more than 160 countries, and the number is expected to increase in the next few years. ClassDojo prides itself on a mission to reinvent classrooms in order to improve learning experience. In a bid to expand its territories, the company struck a partnership deal with Stanford University to teach students about the “Growth Mindset.” It has come up with series of videos available to students that put across new concepts of intelligence. The firm has received over $30 million in total equity funding since it started operating.
