For many family generations, the way that teachers and parents have met to discuss the progress of children in school is by the traditional parent and teacher meeting. This meeting was usually held once or twice a year to go over the progress of the children in school. While the meetings have many positive aspects, the additional time requirements placed on teachers as well as parents have made the number of these meetings few and far between.
Although the teacher and parent physical meetings have certain limitations based on the need to meet in person. This method of teacher and parent meetings continues to be the main way that teachers and parents continue to meet.
With the use of technology becoming more and more common in schools, various companies have begun to provide options to the traditional parent and teacher meetings that have been conducted for generations. One of the companies that is bringing an option to schools regarding teacher and parent meetings to discuss children school progress is ClassDojo.
The company currently has a communication app out on the market that provides a communication platform for schools to use related to teacher and student school activities. Teachers can upload grades, homework, videos, photos, and other school related material using the app. Students can go to the app to view grades, view homework, upload homework, share videos, share photos, and other related activities. For parents, the app allows parents to view all materials related to their children attending the school and communicate with the teachers regarding their children.
The Class Dojo app allows parents and teachers to communicate in this manner whenever desired. With the app, parents can stay informed of their children’s progress on a regular basis. If parents have any questions or need input from teachers, this can be done through the communication app.
Recently ClassDojo received funding in the amount of 21 million dollars to continue enhancements to the communication app. The enhancements that ClassDojo will focus on regarding the app will bring more features and capabilities to the app along with stronger technology at the core of the communication platform.
Schools have been using technology in almost every aspect of schools for many years. One of the few areas where technology has not been used prominently is in the area of teacher and parent communication. With the ClassDojo app, many schools will have the option to use the app instead of depending solely on the traditional teacher and parent in person meetings.
