ClassDojo was established in 2011 and it was first opened in San Francisco with massive investment of approximately $31 Million. The education platform was accredited by Education Tech Accelerator Imagine k12. The investment was inject as means of developing the platform by introducing ClassDojo series B that was pioneered by General Catalyst and the Managing Director Mr. Hemant Taneja. The ClassDojo from San Francisco had successful start-off as a behavioral platform that over the years underwent tremendous growth to become recognized educational software.
Recently ClassDojo hit the headlines by introducing high-class learning tool that accommodates the use of video clip amination aimed at growing mindset and promote happy classroom moments. The video amination incorporates characters like Mojo and Kate from Cast of Pixar’s Inside out, a play that is well known and liked by many students especially in the 8th grade level. These opportunity enables the Students, Teachers, and Parents to experience good learning moments that helps the teachers to disseminate the learning process to Students and Parents.
ClassDojo ensures tutors fully understand the concept behind the video clips that will eventually help students digest the learning communicated in the clips in a process that ensures there is growth in mindset. The idea behind the series of these animated characters reveals that competences, knowledge and acumen skills should be transferrable and developed within the students rather than being rooted and undeveloped. The clips were released by Class Dojo in collaboration with Stanford University by unveiling a project known as Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS). Apart from growth of mindset, the platform is directed at promoting resilience in Teachers, Students and Parents who are involved in the learning process via ClassDojo.

The subscription in the US has given ClassDojo motivation to reach more that 180 countries as part of their expansion plan. The growth plan targets the App to reach more teachers and parents that will improve cultural learning context by accomodating both Parents and Students.
