Class Dojo Connecting Education and Community

Published / by WT23

Communication often is broken in the educational community. There are gaps between administrators, teachers, and parents in most school districts. In the same breath, until ClassDojo, the options were simply not out there to share information freely and pass on relevant updates.

ClassDojo not only keeps the updates coming but they also soothe parents who worry about their children at school by giving the teachers an interface to send pictures of activities in the classroom. These could be private messages to a single, concerned parent or a mass message to update every parent as to what the class is covering on given day.

The ClassDojo app covers a lot of ground that had been ignored by other services and school districts alike. Email is not always optimal. People tend to be more connected to their smartphones because of work or lack of home internet. ClassDojo delivers an instant messenger so that if an emergency arises with a child, the parent is notified in an instant using this app.

Children often fib when it comes to homework, school holidays, and required activities. With ClassDojo, students are given less leeway in passing on false information. Their teacher has constant access and contact with parents as well as other administrators.

ClassDojo says it is being used in over half of United States schools and have expanded to 180 countries. The goal is for every school to benefit from this communication application rather than 2 out of three schools. But it certainly is a start. The app includes a 35 language translator to not only serve the foreign countries that use ClassDojo but to also assist with parents who may not speak English as their primary tongue.

A major problem in the education system was the lack of parent involvement. In the majority of these cases, parents have scheduling conflicts or are single parents who just lack the time to attend parent-teacher conferences or open houses. ClassDojo provides the ability to have these one-on-one conversations without having a break in schedule or routine.

ClassDojo found a niche that was sorely missing. By connecting community, teachers, and parents, they have opened the door for a coming together for the betterment of education. Teachers can share ideas, parents can ask questions, and no assignment will go undone based on the word of a student.

Online Reputation Management: How to Cope with Google

Published / by WT23

Dr. Ben Carson is an unusually prominent person involved in the incredibly public business of running for president. Were you to Google him, you would find substantial negative content about him. But Google can lead its users to negative information about a lot of people.

Such people would be well advised to become acquainted with Darius Fisher. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Fisher majored in Economics. He was the President of the Vanderbilt Investment Club.

Subsequently, Darius Fisher created several successful companies. The most recent and prominent of these is Status Labs. This firm currently has thousands of clients in over 30 countries.

Status Labs specializes in the management of online reputations. Fisher himself is especially knowledgeable about dealing with Google, which handles 3 billion searches daily. If any of the information revealed by such searches is unflattering, it could obviously do serious and widespread damage to reputations.

Fisher’s first piece of advice to people facing such a problem is to Google themselves. However, uninformed searches will produce results reflecting your idiosyncratic past search patterns. To see what most people see if they Google someone’s name, the search needs to be made from a logged out browser with the cache and search histories cleared.

If such searches lead to negative content on your Facebook page, (for example) you can simply remove it. Or, you can at least change the privacy settings to hide it from the general public.

If, on the other hand, the negative information is published in public sources or other people’s Facebook pages, it may be impossible to remove. New content may need to be generated, according to Fisher. “By creating new content, you give Google’s algorithm new, relevant content about you,” according to Fisher, “that will rank highly in a search.” Also, online photos beyond your control might be removed if you contact the relevant website administrators. If they don’t cooperate, legal action might be necessary and effective.

Once unflattering material has been eliminated, then Fisher recommends strategies to keep your online profile positive. Your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages should be fed a steady, even daily stream of favorable content. In addition, data brokers like PeopleSmart, Spokeo, and Whitespages can be prevented from creating problematic online profiles, if you know what you are doing, or hire companies to assist with this task.
