One thing in life is for certain: change is going to happen. Now, this is something that frightens and scares a lot of people. They might have grown comfortable and content with a certain way of life. They want to keep things at the status quo. However, that does not leave any room for growth both as a company and as an individual. If there is anyone that understands that, it is Bob Reina of Talk Fusion. He founded and created the company in 2007 because he knew there was a void out there that needed filling and he wanted to be the person to fill that void for others.
The void was happiness. A lot of people were stuck in jobs or suits and they were just plain miserable. As the economy got worse and worse, a lot of people were forced to take jobs that did not bring out the best in them. In fact, it was the opposite. It made them angry people. They started to resent going to work and they dreaded the sound of the alarm clock. Bob Reina saw how tech was changing, and he wanted to change with it. With Talk Fusion, it allowed people the glorious chance to work from home.
This allows them to once again be happy, live out their dreams, and spend time with the people that matter the most to them. That is a tremendous feeling, to say the least. It opens up doors they probably thought were long closed. It all starts with voice, data, and communication, which is something that Talk Fusion excels at, to say the least.
They are getting recognized for this by the the Technology Marketing Corporation. They have won the 2016 Communications Solutions Product Of The Year Award, which is their second award from this company in the year 2016.
It only goes to show that 2017 is going to be incredible for Talk Fusion and everyone that uses it. Right now, there are thirty-day free trials for folks that want to fully experience Talk Fusion and all of its benefits.
Classdojo is an exciting and academic-minded take on the social media craze. Developed from an idea that he had while witnessing the education system of the United States, United Kingdom native Sam Chaudhary returned to his home country and along with his friend Liam Don, created a kid friendly communication program. The idea was fairly simple; produce a social media platform that could be used in a classroom environment to help regulate classroom management for teachers and allow students to build friendships and rapport with one another in the process.
Classdojo allows students the opportunity to connect to one another and share videos, photos and schoolwork with one another, their teacher, and interestingly enough, their parents as well. Parents are given the opportunity to maintain constant monitoring abilities on what their young scholars are currently working on in class. This feature makes Classdojo a valuable instrument in parent-student interaction and gives parents more peace of mind for the activities being presented to their children when they are not physically present.
Another interesting feature to Classdojo is the behavior system. When students first create their profile for the application they are given an avatar that looks like a cute, small monster. Teachers have the ability to either give these avatars positive points for having a good attitude and following classroom rules and policies, or they can have these points taken away for disruptive behavior practices. Since parents can monitor what happens on their child’s account they are able to see these point differences and can then have a general idea of how their child is operating in class.
With a robust and user friendly interface, Classdojo provides an excellent basis for classroom based communication. The application acts as a social media program, but is limited to who the teacher allows into each grouping, making the environment safe for the children involved. Since social media is currently popular the students will feel more involved and interested in Classdojo and will therefore be more engaged in the application itself.
In a world that is currently moving quickly to a more online presence it only makes sense for more education based applications to appear for use. Technology is going to continue to advance and move forward and schools need to move as well.
Classdojo has become an extremely popular application and is used in over one third of all classrooms in the United States.
