With all of the commotion and excitement at the end of the school day, our little ones are leaving behind so much that we never get the chance to see. Poems and art work that they work so hard on never get the praise it deserves from us, and sometimes we miss out on how brilliant our children are outside of what we already know. It is important that as parents we are able to promote success and be a part of our children’s journey.
ClassDojo is an educational social media app that provides a platform for teachers, parents and students to share and communicate all things educational in a safe environment. The one of a kind educational app recently made a change that will make the sharing experience even easier. They have added Student Stories to the app, which allows students to upload and store photos to a digital portfolio for their parents to view later.
Co-Founder and Chief Product officer Liam Don sat down for an interview with The 74 million to talk about the innovative application and its new improvements. Before the new Student Stories feature, students were able to share and discuss homework, but other assignments like science and creative writing were off limits. For most kids, those are the most exciting parts, getting down and dirty with a messy science project, or just being creative and letting your mind flow.
ClassDojo launched in 2011 with a goal of linking parents to the classroom in a fun and convenient way. Because most parents are employed full-time, it is sometimes difficult for them to participate in school activities, or be as hands on as they may want to be. Liam Don hopes that ClassDojo will help change that. He believes that this platform will help spark conversation between parents and students about their shared work and projects at the dinner table, or even on the car ride home.
They focus heavily on grades K-8, helping teachers, students and parents create a more intimate relationship with classwork. Class Dojo is widely appreciated by all users because of its ability to connect and share like never before.
