ClassDojo has concluded yet another round of funding for its innovative app that promotes parent-teacher meetings. The company raised $21 million that will be used in incorporating more features into the app. By communicating on a daily basis throughout the entire year, the parents are acquainted of the behavior of their children and, hence, incidences that are discussed during annual parent-teacher meeting do not surprise them.
ClassDojo’s co-founders said that the funds generated during the recently closed round of venture funding would help the firm to expand its workforce and to finance development of new content and features. The goal of the two executives is to transform the way parents and teachers use the tech app. When they started ClassDojo in 2011, the founders realized that other tech firms were creating grade books, digital syllabus, and testing platforms. They discovered that the educational sector needed an app that would build an interactive community between trainers, learners, and their parents.
ClassDojo competes with other edtech firms, including FreshGrade, Kickboard, and Nearpod. However, the application has continued to register a tremendous increase in the number of users. Educators in over 85,000 private, public, and charter schools use ClassDojo to empower students and communicate with parents. Additionally, many teachers are using the app to teach students from Kindergarten all the way to 8th-grade classes. Currently, the edtech company is on a mission of distributing its app across the globe. The founders are planning earn revenue by creating premium features that parents can use after paying for them.
