Parent-teacher meetings have long been the one way parents get to know the happenings of their child at their schools. But for parents who want to know more about their children and the various things that they are doing in school, the once a semester meeting is not enough. Parents want to be involved more and more in their child’s life, especially when it comes to their children’s education. With new technology and an app like ClassDojo, parents are now more connected than ever with their children and the teachers who are imparting valuable knowledge to them.
Through the app, parents don’t have to wait for that special day in the year to find out about their child’s progress. They are constantly updated about what is going on in school and how well their kids are doing in their academics. This has proven to be extremely useful in bridging the gap between parents and the school systems that their children are in.
But just looking at what their children are doing isn’t the main aim of the app. The app recently partnered with a program by Stanford University whereby the app gives parents a better understanding of growth and development. Often, parents believe that their child’s development is only associated with marks they get in the exams and how well their grades are. In reality, there are a lot more attributes that contribute to the overall development and growth of a child. According to angel.co, ClassDojo helps parents understand the different aspects of growth in their child so as to understand better what they need and how they are progressing.
The app isn’t only meant for the classroom – it is also intended to give parents a better understanding of what they need to talk about and implement at home for the benefit of their child. A Lot of times, children don’t speak up about the difficulties they are facing in class, and parents get to know about them only during the yearly meet with the teachers. Through the app, parents can monitor their child’s overall progress, giving them a better understanding of what their children deem as straightforward and challenging. This has helped parents become a larger part of their child’s overall development. Check ClassDojo’s Instagram.com page.

The company that has created this app strives to offer the parents and schools the best when it comes to its features and is heavily focused on providing its users with a good overall app experience.
