THIS APP GIVES PARENTS A REAL-TIME VIEW OF THE CLASSROOM

(CNN) – Want to keep an eye on your kids while they’re at school?

Yep, you guessed it. There’s an app for that.

ClassDojo allows teachers and students to share what happens in real time.

The app is used in over 130 countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada and Qatar.

The company says since launching in 2011, about 90% of elementary and middle schools in the U.S. have adopted the social network.

Parents using the app can get notifications for updates on their child’s performance and even send direct messages to teachers.

ClassDojo was founded by Liam Don, a game developer, and Sam Chaudhary, a teacher.
