ClassDojo releases iPhone app; Android app to follow soon
Fresh on the heels of raising a $1.6M seed round from a group of angel investors including Paul Graham and Ron Conway, San Francisco-based ClassDojo is rolling out its first mobile app for iOS, with an Android version expected to follow shortly. The app enables teachers to utilize ClassDojo’s features to control their classrooms and manage student behavior in real-time.
Designed with managing student behavior in mind, ClassDojo’s platform allows teachers to assign avatars to each of their students and add or subtract “points” depending on their behavior; information that is displayed to the entire class using a smart board or display screen. The app then uses the data to help teachers, administrators and parents monitor students’ progress and follow classroom trends.
You can download the app from the iTunes store here.
