Build it and they will come, right? That’s exactly what Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, founders of the classroom communication platform Class Dojo, did. After several conversations with teachers, students and parents, the idea was born. The tool, currently used in 2 in 3 schools in the US and in 180 other countries, fosters effective regular communication between parents & teachers about how students are behaving and performing in the classroom. And it’s changing the game from the ground-up.

Founded in 2011, the free app – that’s right, free – is effectively creating a positive culture with classrooms and schools. In its infancy, the app’s primary focus was on communicating with parents about students’ behavior – awarding children with points when they behaved well or put a new skill into practice. That has since evolved into teachers being able to send photo and video messages to parents of activities going on in the classroom. This idea of daily communication between parents and teachers, versus the once a semester parent-teacher conference, is one that makes you wonder, “why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?”

As a parent that has actually experienced Class Dojo firsthand, I have nothing but praise for it. And my experience was about 2 years ago – before the sharing of video and photo messages. Nonetheless, I checked the app every day to see what kind of day my son (6 years old at the time) was having – and he knew it. Not only was I very much engaged with the app, my son was too. He would get excited when he had a great day and asked me to check it when I picked him up from school. As a better alternative to email, Class Dojo was a quick and easy way for his teacher and I to communicate. The sense of connection, as well as empowerment, that it creates between teacher, student and parent is unmatched. So much so, that this school year I found myself missing it when my son moved to a school that does not currently use it.

Since its inception 5 years ago, Class Dojo has not only increased parent engagement but that of students as well. That increased engagement has led to the introduction of a series of animated videos on growth mindset, which aims to affect students’ perceptions of themselves as learners. Helping them develop and strengthen their intelligence and their ability to learn, and dispelling the notion that either you’re “born smart” or you’re not. A concept that speaks to the passion the company was founded on: to make education better around the world. Chaudhary and Don, I think you’re onto something.

I have always been interested in social apps because I do not really like meeting people in person. I do feel I am a social person but, like others, I do tend to be a little shy at first. Some social apps (the better ones at least) have helped me tremendously, but I always felt like something was missing; then I found Skout. It felt like the people behind the app were reading my mind. I have to say that I was very excited about finding them, especially now that I am heading off to college.

The idea behind Skout is kind of cool. It basically lets you connect with people wherever you are. There are a lot of people who are already using the app. A few options on the app help you find people who are near you like at a party or club. You can chat, exchange notes, or even pictures to feel the person out a bit before making a physical connection. The app separates adults from teenagers to keep things at the right age range, too. It pretty much takes care of keeping a meeting safe, and it really makes it easier for people like me to meet people where ever I am. https://www.yahoo.com/news/skout-review-190606654.html?ref=gs
I am especially excited about using this app for college. I know that many people meet new friends at college. In fact, I read that 72 percent of college students met good friends during the first week of college. I am not sure that I am going to be one of those people. I think I belong to the 59 percent of students who are a little worried about making friends during their freshmen year of college. Keep in mind that I know no one at this college. I know that I am not alone, as I did read that many people go to college without knowing anyone, but that does not mean I am not scared. I’m glad I found Skout, which I downloaded almost immediately. http://download.cnet.com/Skout/3000-12941_4-75619529.html

One thing that was great to read was Skout just took out a study regarding some of the friendliest schools around. I was a little worried because I had already chosen the school that I was going to attend, but thankfully the school I am going to is in Boulder, Colorado, and it turned out to be one of the friendliest college towns according to Skout. There are others of course that include San Francisco, California and New York City, New York just to name a few. I am definitely excited about this new chapter in my life. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skout-reveals-the-top-10-friendliest-college-towns-in-america-300141309.html

Every day I find myself googling Donald Trump. It’s not that I think he’s going to be this amazing president some day but it’s because I am always curious about what crazy things he has to say. Every day something else he has said pops up in my news feed and I find myself shaking my head simply because I can’t believe someone would be so willing to say such crazy things on such a huge platform as potential president of the United States. It’s unbelievable at times how he has no filter and doesn’t care what it does to his reputation.

I actually think many online brand reputation sites were created to help people just like him. People who talk entirely too much. Who can’t seem to stay out of trouble and who most importantly can’t seem to keep themselves out of the negative news because they are always willing to say whatever comes to their mind first, it’s sad actually but that’s who Trump is and that’s how many arrogant business owners today are and they don’t for a moment think twice of how it can impact their bottom line.

Recently, a new company came to the forefront to save the lives of people like Trump who can’t seem to stay out of the media. Meet BBA or Bury Bad Articles. They do just what their names says, they bury bad articles. They don’t delete them they just make sure that whatever negative articles are out there will be instantly buried in the search engine if hired by your company. A dream come true online.
