ClassDojo Brings Technology To The Classroom 

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

The use of technology in school systems has increased dramatically over the past few decades. The use of technology goes from the administrative offices to the classrooms. One of the main reasons why the use of technology has increased such much over the past few decades is because of the technology innovations that have occurred during this time period.

Many recent technology innovations have helped to change the way people and the business world operate on a daily basis. Technology innovations such as the Internet, WiFi, and smartphones have helped to change the world into a digital world where technology is almost essential to perform core business operations.

With the technology available today, the things that can be done in classrooms and school systems as a whole have changed the way education is conducted at the K-12 level and above. The use of the Internet and related technology has made it possible for teachers to teach classes and provide lectures over the Internet. Students can do their homework online and receive tutoring help online. Directly in the classrooms and in school systems technology has allowed the educational system to be altered.

The use of technology has allowed many traditional methods of performing tasks to be changed to more modern methods that help to improve efficiency in classrooms and in school systems. While technology has helped to change many aspects of classroom and school system’s daily operations, one of the aspects of the school system that remains the same is the teacher and parent conference. The traditional teacher and parent conference is still the primary method used in many school systems to communicate between teachers and parents.

However, ClassDojo is helping to provide technology options for the teacher and parent conference. The company has an app that is used in school systems across the country that allows schools to conduct many tasks using the app over a network platform designed to support the app. With the app, teachers can place test, homework, and other related materials on the network platform to provide access to students and parents.

In addition, there are numerous other tasks that can be done using the app such as sharing video and pictures. Also, other tasks include the ability for teachers and parents to communicate over the app system. This communication can be used in place of the traditional teacher and parent conference.

ClassDojo has raised over 21 millions dollars concerning the app. The money will be used to help enhance the app related to current features and functions along with providing additional user options.

Talk Fusion Lives Up To Its Name

Published / by Alice

Communication has become more streamlined in modernity than perhaps in any other time in human history, baring an advanced sunken civilization vis-a-vis Atlantis. Communication continues to revitalize itself over time, and one of the reasons that happens is modern political climates across independent nation-states have made citizen development of technology for use in a corporate climate possible. In a feudalism or authoritarian socialist regime, technological advances don’t usually happen as quickly. But in America, one man can change the whole world just by going after a solution no one has tackled yet. In this case, that man was Bob Reina.

In 2007 Bob Reina wasn’t trying to change the world. In fact, he wasn’t trying to change anything; he was just trying to send an e-mail with a video embedded inside. He couldn’t figure out how to make that happen, and when he called America Online, he was told what he wanted wasn’t possible. Now, in a society with strictures on freedom, what Bob did next probably wouldn’t have been thinkable. But Bob was in the right place and the right time, so he was able to commission an IT friend to develop software technology that would allow a video to become embedded in an e-mail. The two were successful at their endeavor, and as of 2016, Talk Fusion can boast influence in some one-hundred and forty separate countries.

Talk Fusion is also continuously developing the technologies at its disposal. Recently they’ve come out with a proprietary, patent-pending high definition video chat application that is so popular it’s topped the charts in Indonesia, and become the fifth most popular video chat app in Japan. Talk Fusion is offering a thirty day free trial of their technology, and the trial does not require any credit-card information. Things like that are what have boosted Talk Fusion into membership with the DSA, or Direct Sales Association: they’ve got enough confidence in their product to take a loss on a new client for a month.

Lastly, Talk Fusion’s options are available on Android, Macintosh, and Windows systems; as well as on a variety of tablet operating systems.

Smiling, happy people draw others. The laws of attraction make a point of noting how people act contributes to how people react to them. This is not just the case in real life, but also online. Skout recently did an survey of its users. The results of the survey reveal replacing a stoic picture with a smiling one is going to reap massive rewards.

April brings “National Humor Month” and Skout took the opportunity to learn a little bit about smiles and their effect. Based on research, persons with a nice smile in their profile photograph are better able to make connections with other people.

Should this come as a surprise?

A person who is smiling appears like a fun individual to be around. A smile has a disarming, positive psychological effect. A smile on a happy face gives off positive vibes. Skout’s tracking of its members reveals this.

Skout provides an app for a dating and friendship social platform. The app is designed to connect people through both their interests and geographic location. Creating a profile on Skout requires adding pictures and various images. Careful thought should go into the selection of the images to be sure they yield the desirable effect. On a dating and companionship platform, this means the images must support and contribute to interactions. Smiling helps with this cause a lot.

Skout’s survey involved getting the opinions of 3,372 of its users. That is a pretty sizeable sample, and one capable of delivering credible results. The survey took revealed photos of people laughing received extremely positive reactions. Smiles, laughter, and being upbeat in general draw people to others.

And a lot of people are drawn to Skout. The app has a large following. Skout is considered a “mobile-social network” and people from all over the world are members. The display of the members is perfect for a smartphone. Just tapping on an image loads the profile. Quick and easy access to profiles makes contacting the person even easier.

Those without smiling or laughing photos may wish to add them. Doing so is going to help stimulate a lot more activity on the platform. “Activity” means meeting more and more interesting people, and that is a desirable outcome.
