ClassDojo Has Earned the Teachers Trust by Focusing on Solving the Challenges That They Face12.27.17

According to PitchBook, the education technology sector is headed for a 1.4 billion dollars mark by the end of this year. This figure, however, falls short of the 2015 value that is the highest so far standing at 1.5 billion dollars. Some of the industry players that have done well this year include LittleBits that added a new product in the market that made it shine in the National Principals Conference. Others include Nearpod and Classcraft. Though investors and entrepreneurs are optimistic about a brighter future, they are exercising caution especially with the likelihood of the 2018 U.S federal education budget being reduced.

Focusing on the Teacher

Education technological tools are meant to improve learning by making it fun for kids and easy for the teachers. It is however shocking that not all teachers believe that the technology they use meets the above. Ideally, many teachers are making learning fun without the use of technology. Entrepreneurs who hope to make it big in the industry should make the teachers the center of their inventions. They should, therefore, focus on solving challenges that teachers face in their work.

ClassDojo, for instance, understands trick and has marked tremendous success in its products. Sam Chaudhary, one of the co-founders often involves teachers as well as the parents and students in every step of developing a product. The firm’s product helps teachers communicate with the parents on how their children are doing in the classroom. This type of challenge would be hard to think of without the involvement of the teachers. Impressively, 90% K-8 school districts in the United States are using ClassDojo according to the San Francisco Business Times.
