For many years there has been a growing communication problem in the schooling system. Thankfully, Class Dojo and companies like them are creating new ways to build communication for the educational system, especially for children. The early years of a child’s academic career will be the most important in shaping their entire schooling experience. Today, it is well known within the educational community that communication is very important in regards to overall education. Sam and Liam, the founders of Class Dojo, specifically went around asking school staff and various teachers what the worst aspects of their own school community, and it turns out most of them had communication on the list.
It often goes unnoticed, but communication is a very important aspect that can help improve the performance of any student. For young children especially, the interaction with the parents and involvement in their schooling goes a long way in building their confidence and motivation. With Class Dojo, parents are able to stay connected with their children more effectively than ever before. This is because it allows parents to directly contact their child’s teacher at any time and see how they are doing with their classwork. Instead of the parent-teacher conferences that are few and far between, Class Dojo keeps parents and teachers in the loop at all times.
Class Dojo has improved a great deal since it was first released, allowing teachers from classrooms around the world to connect to each other and create a new experience for their students. They can learn about different religions, cultures, and lifestyles all through the power of communication and connectivity. Class Dojo is a very simple program to use and virtually everyone is able to use the program, provided they have a smart device and an internet connection. In less than a decade, more than two-thirds of schools in the United States have adopted the Class Dojo program and it doesn’t look like it will slow down anytime soon as it spreads to more classrooms around the world.
