With the ever changing daily technology that we use as a society, it only makes sense to constantly be innovating the technology used to educate our children as well. When most people think about using technology to educate children, they think of using tablets to show the children videos, they think of using e-books in place of textbooks and the think of taking tests on computers.
There are even greater things that can be done to teach the children of today and tomorrow. ClassDojo is one of the leaders in communication platforms aimed at bringing teachers, students and parents closer together. ClassDojo aims to turn every class room into a community, complete with its own culture.
Any school that hasn’t already utilized ClassDojo or a similar communication platform are leagues behind schools that have. ClassDojo allows parents to check in with teachers anytime by using a texting app and vice versa. This allows teachers to better learn about each student’s personal needs and accommodate each student in their own unique way. Parents are also allowed to jump into the classroom anytime they want with live video chat via their children’s tablets.
The educational technology industry has recently recovered from a small rut, and even though the industry is relatively new, the toughest part of the journey is behind them. Through word of mouth and advertising, teachers all over the United States have gotten their hands on such software as ClassDojo. Now the real challenge has arrived for ClassDojo and similar companies all over the country: competing with one another.
ClassDojo says it has excelled above all competition and prospered where similar start-ups have flopped by paying very close attention to the needs of its clients: teachers, students, and parents. ClassDojo is constantly changing its purpose to suit the needs of teachers and parents.
With almost every school in America now having a high-speed internet connection, it will be up to 3rd parties to create resources to implement over the internet to help teach our children. For a company to succeed it has to be more innovative and have better marketing than its competition.
