Classdojo Secures Funding, Continues Roll Out

ClassDojo, an app which facilitates interaction between parents and teachers, has secured $21 million in series B funding. This represents a major infusion of working capital and will allow the startup to proceed on pace with its strategic roll out.

The app was originally conceived in 2011 as a way to eliminate the need for parent teacher conferences. The idea was to create an interactive environment whereby parents could actively participate in their child’s educational experience, not just on a bi-yearly or monthly basis, but every day of the school year. By keeping parents abreast of their child’s daily assignments, participation and school work, ClassDojo allows parents to proactively take part in their child’s education.

The latest funding round was closed by co-founders Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don in late 2015. It will be used to continue strategic development. Many new features have been implemented and continued research into new features, driven by user feedback, will be ongoing.

Some of the app’s present capabilities include the instant update and dissemination of class schedules and activities to parents. In addition, teachers can send parents high definition pictures of students’ class work as well as students’ highlights from the school day.

ClassDojo is an increasingly feature-rich, cross-platform app that solves many problems faced by today’s public educators. The app has a built-in translation feature which will automatically convert all teacher communications to the user’s preferred language. It can also be used on practically any device. It automatically sends notifications to parents such as homework assignments, days off, field trips and even videos of a child’s participation in class that day. All this helps encourage students through positive feedback and the setting of clear goals.

ClassDojo is built around a philosophy the founders refer to as “the growth mindset”. This espouses that all children have the capacity to learn, no matter who they are or what their life’s circumstances. This idea is the guiding vision of an app which seeks to instill the love of learning through positive feedback and constructive reinforcement.

The latest series B funding brings the total capital raised to $31 million to date. The founders have settled on taking the app’s future development in the direction of community formation, much in the vein of social networking. Thus far ClassDojo has remained free to all users. In the future, management will look to monetize the app’s user base through offering premium, value added features. Such features may include transaction fees or even directly selling school supplies to parents.

Skout Is Great for College Students

I love Skout. It has become the only social media platform that I need. It is good to see such a good amount of people that are joining. That makes the site very intriguing. I also enjoy the articles that are found on the website.

I recently came across an article about the 10 friendliest college towns. As someone that is getting ready to consider applying to colleges soon, I found this advice to be very helpful. That is why I cherish this site so much. It always provides helpful bits of information like this that I cannot find anywhere else.

I think other people flock to this site and download the app because it has such a large number of people from so many different places. I don’t have any trouble meeting new people when I am on Skout.

I have found that this is the quickest way to find friends when you move to a new city as well. I moved to New Jersey, and I made a lot of friends online before I ever got to the city. It was great because they showed me around when I got there.

I think that this site differs from a lot of other social network sites by being one that has surveys and articles that have information that is relevant to young people like myself. I have seen some of the other social media sites get cluttered with advertising and information outside of my age group. Skout, however, is trendy and hip.

I think that Skout is one of the better websites for people that are trying to pull all of their social media needs under one umbrella. It is very easy to build contacts with friends and network for jobs all under the same app. I think that this has become one of the most interesting sites because it brings a ton of people together for different things.

It certainly makes me happy to have an app on the phone that helps me maximize my time. I don’t know what other people are using, but this app has become the best source of information and entertainment for me and my online friends.

I have tried Facebook and other sites like Twitter. The best one has been Skout because it gives me more access to local people in my area. I feel good about what this site provides for users.

I feel good about the influx of social media sites that are becoming available today. I think think that this is the best form of communication for the young crowd. I am busy, but I always have time to check this app. It’s quick and very easy to use.
