An article on the website Tech Crunch talks about the messaging app ClassDojo. The app is a platform that was created for parents and teaches to better communicate with each other. This app has raised $35 million in funding.
The article discusses that The Series C and SignalFire will be used to increase ClassDojo’s free communication app expansion and use Beyond School to monetize its services. Beyond School is an optional subscription service that allows parents to work with their children by being given at-home tutorials that help increase mindfulness and improve study habits.
ClassDojo’s value is said to be approaching the $400 million mark. This figure is a substantial growth from the $99 million that the company was said to be worth in 2015. The article talks about how the app’s growth is to thank for such a high net worth. ClassDojo is currently used in over 95 percent of US schools from Pre K to eighth grade. While the largest market for ClassDojo is the United States, the app is also now available in 180 other countries. The company helps to keep costs down by employing only 40 people.
The article mentions that ClassDojo’s mission is to identify and solve any communication problems that might arise when teachers are teaching kids. The app is meant to help parents engage more with what their kids are being taught at school and to create a more positive culture. ClassDojo is having many positive effects with teachers and parents and also between parents and children. These stronger relationships that are built make it easier to communicate and help to empower learning.
ClassDojo’s growing community is bringing about a more positive classroom community throughout the world and is focused on helping to bridge any communication gaps that may occur between, parents, teachers, and students.
