There has been a smartphone app created that is changing how children are taught and how parents are communicated with regarding their child’s education. Mrs. Rhodes, an educator in Tiburon, California, commented that the parents of her students like the pictures posted of what is happening in the class and in turn she enjoys the notifications the app provides when parents use the app to see her classroom.
The app, ClassDojo, launched in 2011 and has quickly spread into schools and classrooms across the United States and indeed the world. In the United States at least two-thirds of schools have a teacher using the app in their classroom. The apps first came to be of mass appeal when it gave a point system to teachers for the rewarding of students in good behavior. The app has evolved into providing instant communication between parent and teachers in the child’s learning. Just before this school year the app also added Student Stories, which lets students post their own photos and videos about what happened that day at school.
A difference maker about the app is that teachers can use the app without dealing with the bureaucracy of the school administration, and in doing so keep parents, teachers, and administration informed of what is happening in the classroom. Read more on https://www.classdojo.com/resources/.
ClassDojo has achieved enough success that they are now able to focus on way to generate revenues on the app. Instead of advertising they have concentrated on selling educational content such as educational videos. For this purpose ClassDojo has partnered with Stanford University to produce a collection of videos around the concept of “growth mindset”. So far the series has seen 25% of American Kindergarten through 8th grade students watch the videos. The second set of videos they are working on will be done in conjunction with Harvard University.
ClassDojo created their app with three goals in mind. The first was to help create a positive culture in classrooms. The second was to give children a voice and opportunity to share their work, and the third was to get parents engage through their children sharing videos and pictures with them during the school day.
Through April 2016 ClassDojo has raised $21 million in funds from venture capital firms. The co-founders of the company, Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, have used this funding to grow their team and research what types of content is appealing to the teachers, parents, and students that will use the app.

Bob Reina is an aspiring entrepreneur and family man who founded Talk Fusion in 2007.

He decided to build a software company that would allow users to send video emails as a marketing tool, and include newsletters and signup forms along with it. Talk Fusion went from concept to growing fast.

It isn’t easy finding your way to a product that seems to be so perfectly needed in the current market but so overwhelmingly underrepresented. However, that is exactly what Talk Fusion CEO Bob Reina did back in 2007 when he founded his company. Talk Fusion is an all in one video marketing solution for companies and entrepreneurs that need to take their game to the highest level while marketing their products to an eager customer base. In this vein it is easy to say that Talk Fusion has succeeded. They’ve also begun to rack up honors from high profile companies like Communications Solutions who presented them with their coveted 2016 Product of the Year Award.
The Product of the Year Award is another gleaming medal on the mantle of Talk Fusion’s already successful resume. This award is given out to companies who so completely embody their product within the needs of video, data, and voice communications. Talk Fusion has refined their message and their product over the past nearly 9 years and as a result they are now a well oiled machine, as well as one of the most popular marketing solution companies on the planet. Bob Reina said, in relation to the award, that this was “just the beginning”. He went on to say how much his IT crew was ready to implement their “big plans for the future” in order to stay ahead of the always changing curve. Talk Fusion’s CTO, Ryan Page, saw the award as a testament to “how efficient and innovative” the company has been.

Talk Fusion is a new innovative video communication software where users can communicate with people all around the world through video chat. No matter what part of the world users are calling with Talk Fusion, they will still receive a clear picture with no glitches or pauses during the time that they are communicating. One of the great benefits to using Talk Fusion is the price is very affordable for users and is worth every dollar spent because of the software’s innovative structure that was creatively constructed by Bob Reina.
Bob Reina had created Talk Fusion to give people around the world the opportunity to communicate with their loves through video chat, without any hassles. With some video communication software’s, users will have numerous glitches in their screen such as a freeze up and the voices will cut in and out. By researching new studies on video communication, Bob was able to create a software program where users would not have these negative experiences. When a parent gets online to call there child who is thousands of miles away, the last thing they want is to not be able to hear or see their son/daughter. With Talk Fusion, that worry will never cross their minds.
Bob has always been well-known for highly popular software programs that are up to date with all the new styles on the market. Talk Fusion just so happens to be one his most highly ranked products he has ever created. It is widely used amongst parents whose children are away at college, wives whose husbands are overseas and married couples that are always split apart do to their work that requires them to travel. Without Talk Fusion, they could still communicate with their loved ones, but they would be hassled with frozen computer screens and jumbled voices on the other end.
I am the single soccer mom that has a lot of long days at work. I would love to say that I can do it all, but I can’t. I believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and it also takes a cleaning service to keep the home clean. Handy is a wonderful company that has made my life easier. This is the type of organization that has saved me over and over again.
I like to schedule an appointment for cleaning whenever I am getting ready to have a party. A lot of people that come to my home will comment on how well I clean. I don’t tell everyone, but I let some of my closest friends in on my secret. I have Handy Cleaning Services in place, and this is really all that I need.
I have to juggle a lot of things because I have a job that requires a lot of overtime. There are all types of people in place that are helping me out. I have my daughter in an after school care program. I have another parent that takes my daughter to games when I cannot make it. It just makes sense to also have a company like Handy on speed dial for the things that I need to repair around the home.
The app makes it so easy to just book an appoint at any time. This is what I love the most about the site. I can book someone in less than a minute. That person will be able to come out within 24 hours. It could not get much easier than that. I get the deluxe services where they go from the kitchen to the bathroom to the bathroom. I like the crew clean the floors, scrub the tubs and take out the trash.
As a mom that has her hands full with work, school and extracurricular activities, I am thrilled for any chance to get my home cleaned by professionals. I like this company, and I believe that many moms would benefit from Handy.
