ClassDojo raised $21 million in the second round of venture funding. This funding is aimed at upgrading their application, which helps parents communicate to teachers consistently about the students’ behavioral developments and activities. ClassDojo has eliminated the conventional system where a parent could meet their child once in a semester. ClassDojo is commonly used in teaching from Kindergarten to 8th-grade classes. Currently, the application is being used by over 85,000 schools. This app has been praised for creating a community that strengthens teacher-parent relationship.
The firm was launched after the founders saw a free, easy to use platform that could create a culture and community among teachers, parents, and students. On the contrary, other edtech service providers saw opportunities in creating curriculum, testing platforms, and grade books. Contrary to other service providers, ClassDojo management believes that privacy is essential in their app and doesn’t make revenues from users’ data. According to the firm’s management, they are planning to create premium features and contents that parents and teachers would pay to use.
Although they are faced with competition from other firms such as Remind, FreshGrade, Kickboard and Nearpod, the company has managed to thrive in the market. This is evident from their rapid growth from being education tech accelerator to their current position of Y Combinator.
