ClassDojo is launching their very first subscription service for parents known as “Beyond School,” and they are excited to share its many features with their existing and new customers.
ClassDojo has always been about providing a useful app that makes it easier for parents, students, and teachers to stay connected at school and at home. ClassDojo has never had any monetization yet they have managed to stay not only afloat but growing as well.
ClassDojo first launched in 2011 and is based out of San Francisco. ClassDojo is a tool that is used in about 95 percent of elementary and middle schools in the United States and about one in six families in the US uses the app daily.
The new app will offer short videos that will help parents to connect with their children through meditation exercises, mindfulness and there is even a self-reflection tool where children can record responses to questions. There are also many fun avatars for children to choose from and the new app makes it possible for children to really express themselves.
Children are awarded points and can watch videos as well as decorate their avatars which keeps learning fun and motivating. So far the company has raised $31.1 million from their investors such as Reach Capital and General Catalyst to name a couple. The company has been stringent on such things as advertising and marketing in order to keep going, and although the team has had fewer than only ten employees for many years, they have now grown to include 35 employees.
ClassDojo is an easy-to-use app that opens the doors of communication between parents, students, and teachers and makes learning fun. It is an effective app that makes it possible and easy to share videos, photos, and messages throughout the entire school day and makes it possible to bring ideas to life.
ClassDojo has been translated into over 35 languages, and the company has been honored with numerous awards and recognitions. Some of their achievements include the Education Innovation Award and the Crunchie Award for Best Education Startup just to name a couple.
