A Way to Keep the Communication Lines Open Between Parents and Teachers

The ClassDojo app is creating a positive culture with classrooms and schools as it allows teachers to share with parents photos and videos of the child throughout the school day as the child does their classwork and reports. This allows the teacher to give up-to-date information to the parents and the parents a ways to see what the child is doing at school. No longer do parents and teachers have to wait until parent/teacher conference to have a discussion about the child and the child’s education. This doesn’t disrupt the teacher’s classroom like a phone call would.

This ground-up change in the way parents and teachers are able to communicate is creating a better learning environment for the children. This helps the children to build confidence in knowing that their parents are more involved with their learning environment and therefore this spills over into the home at night when it comes to doing homework or going over work done during the day. The child also can be involved with the app as they can post photos and videos to their own digital portfolio that allows them to showcase their work for their parents to see.

Another fantastic option the ClassDojo app has is the ability for the teachers and administration staff to post upcoming events on the calendar of events portion of the app so that parents can receive the latest information about events happening at the school in the future.

ClassDojo is now in approximately two-thirds of schools in the United States and that number is steadily growing. This app has gained its popularity because the communication line between parents and teachers has felt like a gap. This app is bridging the gap between parents and teachers and is allowing everyone to help improve the child’s education in this regard. This communication platform is enhancing the education of the child by improving the communication for all parties involved.

A parent can feel confident knowing they are being informed about their child on a regular basis and a teacher can feel confident knowing the parent is on board with the child’s education by using the ClassDojo app and staying up to date on all aspects of the child’s education.

Securus Technologies Speaks Against Monopolies

Though the prison sentence may seem final, there is an entire new aspect to business that is not often recognized by civilians. An interesting subject to consider is the subject of communication and how loved ones of inmates communicate to the prison. With this in mind, one communication company in particular stands out that offers some of the most innovative communication technology to the inmates. This company is called Securus Technologies and offers innovative solutions to monitoring and investigation as well as to communication needs. As a company that specializes in prison communication, this company as the overall goal of upholding the justice within the prisons that they serve. Currently, Securus Technologies is one of the largest communication companies in North America and provides unique services to over 1.2 million inmates.

Securus Technologies has been closely monitoring another technology and communications company that has been monopolizing the prisons that the company has private contracts with. This monopolization act can be seen through the fact that it has been proven that each phone call that is made with Global Tel Link adds 15 seconds to 36 seconds of talk time to the phone call. As phone calls are already priced at $13 per 15 a 15 minute call, this expense has become too much for loved ones outside of the prison. It is the belief of Securus Technologies that the loved ones of inmates should not be punished for the criminal activity of the inmate.
