When it comes to their child’s education many parents wish to be more involved. For years now, the parent/teacher conference was a way for parents and teachers to keep in touch and stay on track in the child’s education. Things are changing with the ClassDojo app and only for the better. With this app parents and teachers are have more of a connection when it comes to the child’s education and learning process. The ground-up change that the ClassDojo app has provided in approximately two-thirds of schools across the United States has improved the quality of education the child is receiving and has opened the lines of communication between parents and teachers.
Parents now are able to receive photos and videos from the teachers through this app during the day and are able to see their child interact with others along with working on projects and doing reports and even going on adventures such as field trips and other activities. When the child comes home and shares things that happened at school or things they did then the parents can have a front seat view of this as they have felt a part of it by seeing photos or videos. This only adds to the continuity of the child’s education.
Parents and teachers are also able to privately text message each other about the child. This is an ideal way to communicate with each other as responses can be given at a time by the teacher so as not to disrupt their class. Parents can feel more confident that they are able to reach the teacher at any time through this method.
The ClassDojo app also comes with a feature where teachers and administrators are able to post important events that are upcoming and keep the parents aware so they may be able to attend. This up-to-date information is valuable to all parents. Students are also able to post photos and videos to showcase their work to their own personal digital portfolio which allows the parents to view their work right away.
There is no doubt that the ClassDojo app has everything parents and teachers have dreamed about when it comes to communication about the child’s education and to be on the same track for the education the child deserves.
