Class Dojo was created in 2011 by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary. These two men decided to create an educational application that would assist teachers in the classroom. This app also helps students to get the most out of their educational experience. Class Dojo is primarily used to help students and to communicate with parents. However, there is a side benefit for teachers. This app has also been designed to connect instructors with a community of their peers from around the world.
Most teachers are social creatures. They are individuals who have learned how to communicate because that is what they must do with their students every day. One of the hardest things about being a teacher is the lack of adult communication. Teachers spend most of their time interacting with their students in the classroom. They often do not get to talk to other adults in the building unless it is lunch time or recess. Even then, they still must be mindful of their students.
Class Dojo has helped to eliminate this problem through their online community. An online community sprang up around this app. This community consists of teachers, administrators, para professionals and other members of the education field. They all come together to share ideas and to talk about ways to improve teaching and instruction. Many teachers enjoy the Class Dojo community. It helps them to find solutions to possible challenges and it also gives them new ideas for improving their classrooms.
Teachers no longer have to feel isolated or like they are taking on students all alone. The Class Dojo community can be accessed through the app’s ability to send text. Teachers from around the country and the world use texts and even videos to send messages back and forth to each other. They can instantly connect with other teachers to ask questions or to receive input from a community of educators. All teachers might not use Class Dojo, but if they did; they would certainly find a community of people who can help them in their career.
