Ed-tech firm Class Dojo recently announced that it has managed to raise 21 million dollars in its second round of investment funding. These funds will be used to improve its platform, thus enabling more seamless communication between educators and learners’ parents. The addition of more features to the platform will similarly enable parents to play a bigger role in the everyday learning activities of their kids.
Improving the platform will make it possible for parents to be kept apprised about their children’s experiences throughout the day. This will negate the need for them to physically visit schools to discuss the progress of their kids. The funds raised will go a long way in helping the company to add more content and features to its platform. According to the firm’s cofounders Liam Dona and San Chaudhary, parents will be guaranteed a communication platform, which creates a productive culture within and outside the classroom environment.
The cofounders assert that the idea behind the app was to assist parents in their quest to support the development of their kids. Teachers use the app to schedule learning activities, which are also made known to parents. Photos and videos are regularly sent to parents so that they keep tabs on whatever their kids are doing. Class Dojo has rave reviews due to its ability to create a learning community that encompasses parents, teachers, and learners.
