ClassDojo first launched back in 2011 with the goal of improving the quality of education for all students around the country, and eventually around the world. Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, the founders of ClassDojo, found the inspiration for the company and their platform after speaking with teachers all around the country about the severe lack of communication available to students and teachers, which they know first hand as ex-teachers themselves. ClassDojo is focused on greatly improving on the communication that is available to all parties, including students, parents, and teachers, in an attempt to keep everyone more connected and becoming more engaged in the schooling experience. Since the company’s start 5 years ago, they have impressively managed to spread across the United States into more than two thirds of all schools.
