New app focuses on parent-teacher partnerships for student success

ClassDojo-appClassDojo, a tool that gives real-time, positive feedback to students, updated its flagship mobile app to let teachers and parents build stronger relationships with each other.

ClassDojo helps teachers encourage students to develop critical skills, such as encouraging students to work in teams, contributing creative ideas, or persisting through difficult problems, by recognizing these attributes with positive feedback directly in the classroom.

The app now includes comprehensive messaging features so that teachers and parents can use private messages, photo sharing, and voice notes to have better ongoing, open communication.

“We believe in a world where stronger relationships between teachers, students, and parents matters a lot,” said Sam Chaudhary, co-founder & CEO of ClassDojo. “We know this leads to more success in school, in our communities, and in life. We’re excited about our update today, because it makes the school-to-home connection a reality for families everywhere.”
