Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary launched ClassDojo in 2011. This tool is widely used by parents who do not speak English to keep in contact with their kid’s teachers. ClassDojo is one of several apps designed to bridge the language gap between parents and teachers. This tool helps the students develop their skills while maintaining the connection between parents, teachers and students. ClassDojo is a sharing platform enabling parents to access their children’s student reports. The teachers can upload videos and photos for the parents to see and monitor the behavior of the students. The ClassDojo app was created to improve education and build the communication between the families, teachers and the community. Approximately 90 percent of American school districts use this app. It is available in 180 countries and 35 languages.
The ClassDojo app enables teachers to reward and communicate with their students and their parents. The teachers register to receive a free account. Classes are created and students can view their individual progress. Parents can be invited to share information with the teachers and view the progress of their children. Teachers can customize skills, leave feedback and make adaptions for the school or class. The creators of the ClassDojo app understand relationships require trust. They believe privacy protection is critical for trust and have earned and maintained their user’s trust. This is why ClassDojo has their own privacy center. This provides transparency, protects the users, ensures peace of mind and allows the users to control their information.
The ClassDojo app does not collect any information of a sensitive nature. This includes gender, address, email, social security number and student ID. The app does not share any information with third parties such as Facebook. ClassDojo maintains military grade data centers, highly secure servers and they are access controlled. Their security is at a bank grade level to ensure all information is securely transmitted. The ClassDojo app never stops improving.
