One of the biggest changes that has occurred in schools over the past few decades has been the use of technology as a core aspect of daily school activities in the classroom and in the administrative offices. Technology has been used in the past but not as a central operational function. One of the reasons why schools are using technology more is that recent technology advancements have made technology more efficient in school settings.
Technology innovations such as smartphones and WiFi allow teachers to use devices that are relatively small but allow them to do many useful things with the devices. One of the things that many schools have been using lately regarding technology in schools is an app developed by the technology startup ClassDojo. The app allows teachers to do many school related tasks using the app and the network platform that the app uses.
ClassDojo has provided the app to thousands of schools. The app provides a variety of school related features. Teachers can do tasks such as uploading homework, sharing videos, sharing photos, and uploading grades. Students and parents can access the app through the network platform to retrieve the various items uploaded or shared by teachers. The app also provides the opportunity for students and parents to upload and share various items.
One of the features of the ClassDojo app that has received a lot of attention from teachers and parents is the communication capability between teachers and parents. Using the app, teachers and parents can communicate regarding students at anytime. This is an alternative to the traditional teacher and parent student conference. Many teachers and parents have been using the communication to stay up-to-date on student school academic performance.
ClassDojo has raised an estimated 21 million dollars in additional funding for the app. The company will use the additional funding to make enhancements to the app. With its app, ClassDojo is providing many schools with technology that can be used to make the work of teachers more efficient. The number of schools using the app has increased as the popularity of the app continues to increase.
