Technology has enhanced the way teachers and parents communicate in many ways, but now with the ClassDojo app the communication gap is being bridged even more so. With this app teachers and parents are able to privately text each other about the child and the child’s education in order to improve the continuity of the child’s education. No longer do they have to wait until parent/teacher conference which is on a quarterly basis to have an in-depth discussion about the child and how they are doing in school. Teachers are able to share photos and videos of the child in their learning environment throughout the day in order to show the parents the projects and reports the child is working on. This also includes fun photos and videos while on field trips and at other events. The child is also able to add photos and videos to their own digital portfolio included in this app so they can showcase their work to their parents.
The communication platform that ClassDojo provides is limitless and like no other. Keeping up to date on what the child is learning about can also overflow into the home where the parent can help the child with areas they need and it allows the parents to feel confident in knowing they are staying on top of things.
Included in this app is a calendar of events that allows the teachers and administrators to post about upcoming events and dates for the parents. Parents now can plan ahead and stay current on what is coming up so they will not miss out anything important.
Class Dojo is now in approximately two-thirds of schools all across the United States and that number is steadily rising as more and more school are seeing the advantages of using this app. It is opening the lines of communication between parents and teachers like has never been done before. There is nothing more important to a parent when sending their child off to school than assuring their child is receiving the education they need. With the open lines of communication the ClassDojo app provides this helps the parents know their child is receiving the proper education and it also helps them feel more connected to the classroom and the whole learning experience.
