Educators have been faced with the issue of communication of their students’ progress before and after parent conferences. This issue is being addressed by Class Dojo, which is now being used by about 2 out of 3 or 90% of K-8 schools in the U.S. This has become a great asset and is an easy to use communication platform for teachers to be able to display their students’ progress to parents individually or as a class. This online asset which can also be accessed on smartphones or tablets is empowering teachers, parents and students alike as they have a positive platform to showcase their work which is creating a better community within the classroom and parents. A child is able to create a digital portfolio that allows the parents to see a visual representation of their child’s current progress in the unit. Parents no longer have to wonder how their child is doing as they are also able to easily communicate with their child’s teacher without having to wait for a conference. This platform also is able to use photos and videos which can give a better overall picture of the class and school community, this helps parents feel like a bigger part of their child’s education and has helped create a tighter community with educators. This edutech company, Class Dojo is closing the gaps between parents and teachers as they have made it simple to access class daily schedules, student work and school events to all participants. This innovation may well change the way teachers and parents communicate and give parents an interactive role in the classroom setting. It also helps that the creators have made it visually appealing to their student audience, as they enjoy using it which I got to see first hand when my son used it in the 4th grade.
