The ClassDojo application was designed to resolve the problem most often cited by teachers: bad behavior. Created by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, the app to improve classroom group dynamics, adopted by about 15 million parents and teachers, has features such as reminding teachers of the last time a problem child got positive reinforcement or even taking attendance. It also has been updated to be more mobile so teachers can use the app outside of the classroom. "The cool thing about using the technology is you get all this amazing data for every student and every parent, on all the soft stuff that's incredibly difficult to manage," says Chaudhary.
