It is mostly used in the United States, and the rest of the countries internationally can find it and use it.

What makes ClassDojo a better app than other education technologies?
- It can solve actual problems
Most products that are designed by experts to only make users happy without solving problems does not succeed in the education sector. When ClassDojo was being created, the founders decided to go to the field so that they could know what issues the teachers, parents, and students face so that the edtech company can create something that would solve student problems. This is where teachers could discuss matters of performance with parents without having to go to the conferences.
- ClassDojo has been tested and proven
Since there are so many products out there that teachers are unable to know which ones are the legit products, edtech has been able to carry out tests in different institutions, and with all that, not even one has failed.
- It has a plan for adoption and implementation
For most teachers, technology is not something everyone is conversant with. Therefore, there has to be a way in which the adoption and implementation of products should be done. Teachers need to be guided on how to use these technologies. Therefore, ClassDojo, in this case, has been seen to have helped them to adopt it as it comes with a guideline so that the users can have an easy time.
