Students To Gain More As The Adoption of ClassDogo Across Schools Grows

Posted on 25 February, 2017  in Beneficial App

The growth the education sector has seen is as a result of the many changes that have been made to the general policies that affect education. Despite these changes that target offering students better access to resources, there is need to put in place policies that motivate the development of better structures that can enhance inclusivity and consider students as a vital element in the decision making process. Parents were only invited to comment about their students during end of term meetings but with new technology, this is no longer the case.

 

One of the technological options available for this is the ClassDojo application that can be installed to mobile devices. This application is a community where teachers, students and parents convene to deliberate on the best way to deal with the problems students face while learning. The application has seen massive adoption and 2 in 3 schools today use the app for delivering an awesome classroom experience. Students are the biggest beneficiaries of the platform since most of the conversations held are inclined towards helping them reap better results and grow their portfolios.    See techcrunch.com and read related articles.

 

ClassDojo has been around since 2012 and in the few years it has been running, almost 90 percent of schools have adopted the technology. According to Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, the founders of the application, they are not focusing much on monetizing the platform. Their only concern now is to develop it fully and to see that it gets nearly 100 percent adoption across the country. They will consider monetizing it later but this will be through the introduction of new features that members can use after paying a small subscription fee.

 

More about the company

According to wikipedia.com, ClassDojo is a new technology that is connecting students, teachers and parents, thereby creating an awesome classroom community. It also creates a school community that includes teachers, principals and students and in this environment students can have their problems solved seamlessly. Most importantly, the platform is created with security in mind, so all the information shared across is encrypted.

 

The application will also offer free access to teachers and even after introducing the monetization of new features, teachers will not be affected by the changes. This is to ensure they get the key to connecting with parents to deliberate about giving students a better learning environment. Most importantly, the application offers many languages, so users can translate messages to their language of preference.

Securus Technologies Challenges its Main Competitor

Posted on 8 February, 2017  in Communication App, Inmate Communication

Securus Technologies is one of the leading providers of criminal and civil justice technology solutions to monitoring, investigation and correctional centers in the United States. The successful company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and it has changed the lives of inmates in the country.

 

Just recently, the technology company announced that it will be offering a challenge to one of its main competitors, known as Global Tel. According to a statement from Securus Technologies, the two institutions will have an independent technology judge who will determine the company that has to be best and largest product set, the most capital, the most modern and sophisticated telephone calling service, expense efficient platform and the best customer care service.

 

The current chief executive officer of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, says that Global Tel has always tried to spin facts, claiming that their customer care service and technology are comparable to what his company offers. Richard says that these allegations have led him to invite an independent judge who will carefully evaluate the product sets from both companies, their calling platforms and the customer care service models. Richard says that it is not fair to compare GTL and Securus Technologies. This is because Securus Technologies has invested a lot in the industry for the last four years.

 

The financial reports from Securus Technologies indicate that the organization has spent more than seven million dollars in the business. Most of this money has been used in the acquisition of new companies, product development, and technologies. The company has also built a modern and state of the art technology center too. On the other hand, GTL has invested very little in its business. Securus Technologies used most of the technology products used by GTL in the past, and this means that they are outdated. Comparing these services to what is currently offered by Richard and his team is unfair.
