ClassDojo updates classroom management app

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.”

The updated app’s new features include:
● Tailored views for teachers, students and parents: one app, three ways. Teachers get a view of their students and parents; parents see their child’s progress and can message with teachers; students can keep up with their progress in real-time.
● ClassDojo Messaging: with enhanced messaging capabilities, teachers can communicate safely, securely, and instantly with parents. In addition to text messages, teachers and parents can stay in touch easily with Photos, Voice Notes and also ClassDojo-branded stickers. On-the-go teachers now have multiple options to engage parents with ease and with the context not provided by previous standard forms of communication, like emails and written notes.
● A more seamless interface: the app has been designed from the ground up to be even easier to use.
○ Teachers can easily encourage students and engage parents, right from the class screen. Teachers can take actions — such as giving feedback, photo sharing and messaging — directly through each student or parent profile.
○ Parents can see their child’s progress in real-time, at a glance, and send messages directly to the teacher right from the app’s homescreen.
Teachers can use the ClassDojo app in real-time on any mobile device; parents and students can also use the mobile app or view progress via printed updates from the teacher.

Current users can update their ClassDojo app, and new users can download it for free in the iTunes and Google Play stores. For more information about ClassDojo and its new app, visit
