The Idea That Drew Jorge Moll

Jorge Moll is a Neuroscientist that founded and heads D’Or Institute of Research and Education. He received his MD in Neuroscience at the Federal University of Rio de Janiero in Brazil. Moll completed his residency there as well. Dr. Moll’s Ph. D. was later received from Sao Paulo University in Experimental Pathophysiology.

Jorge Moll’s motivation is providing assistance to those whose quality of life is negatively affected by suffering from various conditions. He currently is President and board member of D’Or Institute of Research and Education (IDOR) and also the Director of the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit (CBNU) and Neuroinformatics Workgroup, which is a diagnostics and imaging laboratory that is top-ranked. When not helping people in his career field, Moll enjoys spending time with his family in Rio de Janeiro where he lives.

The idea of the D’Or Institute of Research and Education came to Jorge Moll by his passion and dream of cultivating world-class education, research, and healthcare in his home country. On an average day, you can find Moll speaking to researchers, entrepreneurs, associates, scientists, and students based on the fundamentals of having free exchange of ideas and collaboration. Collaboration is also a factor when it comes to choosing which of his ideas to make reality. If Moll’s idea involves collaborating and be put into a plan of action, then it will be more likely for Moll to turn that idea into a reality.

When it comes to having ideas, which are plentiful for Jorge Moll, he believes in not holding on to any idea for too long. He either moves forward with them quickly or quickly moves on to the next one. Jorge Moll suggest people read the book “The Exegesis” by Philip Dick. His favorite quote is “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” by DaVinci.

Class Dojo Has Become A Leading Learning Platform That Is Successfully Improving Education

There has been a communication problem in the educational world for a long time, where in most cases there is a strong disconnect between parents and students as well as teachers. For many parents, this is because they have a busy schedule, between errands and work. While this is understandable, it has an effect on the students and their learning, and even worse is this can create a sense of no community and the students end up feeling like they are on their own. Thanks to the launch of Class Dojo, this has been changing to great effect in schools all over the U.S. with their uniquely aimed educational platform. Class Dojo’s focus is on communication and building the school community into a more positive and fun experience for teachers, parents, and especially students.

Class Dojo’s founders, Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, found their inspiration for Class Dojo when they saw the declining conditions of schools all around the country and hard testimonies from various teachers. One of the biggest problems they noticed was that lack of communication and awareness around a child’s education. Class Dojo allows teachers to engage their students on a level like never before and actively share that with parents to create a more positive community.

Parents are able to use the Class Dojo application to keep a closer eye on their child while they are in school in order to see how they are progressing with classwork and activities. The app allows for direct and instant communication which effectively eliminates the need for schedule conferences or phone calls during bad times. Any issues that may need to be addressed can be done right through the app to ensure the students, teachers, and parents are able to stay in sync with each other. Important school events and activities are readily displayed and keep parents in the loop with school events so they can prepare in advance to participate.

Though Class Dojo is relatively new to the scene, they have managed to expand greatly in functional size. In the United States today, more than two-thirds of all schools have seen Class Dojo in the classroom and the platform is finding its way to countries outside the United States as well. Class Dojo continues to update their application and regularly fine-tune existing features, despite the app being free to use for everyone. They have optional features that cost money, however, they are not required to benefit from Class Dojo’s main features, which help fund the platform and pay for new growth.

The Wonderful Betsy Devos

Betsy Devos is a fighter, a fighter for human rights. Together with her husband, Dick Devos, the philanthropist, they are working hard to change the world. Betsy has shown her leadership abilities by proving how she can innovate and advocate for others. It is her mission to fight for others by removing any barriers that stand between them and their ability to thrive.

Betsy Devos has been an active member in politics for over 35 years, elected to chair the Michigan Republican Party four times as well as serving campaigns and party organizations at a leadership level. However, today, she is focusing on the advancement of educational choices as her political interest.

Betsy has always been very active in her community, formerly chairing the “American Federation for Children” and “The Philanthropy Roundtable” on their board of directors. Some of the other local boards she has served on are, “Art Prize,” “American Enterprise Institute,” “Foundation for Excellence in Education,” and the “DeVos Institute for Arts Management at the University of Maryland.” Betsy is currently chairman of the Windquest Group, this is a private group, that operates multi-companies investing in technology, manufacturing and clean energy. She and her husband founded this firm in 1989, her husband, Dick Devos was the former president of Amway and the Orlando Magic NBA franchise.

On February 7, 2017, it was confirmed, after nomination by newly sworn in President Trump, that Betsy Devos would serve as the 11th U.S. Secretary of Education. She seems the perfect choice, after spending almost three decades as a child advocate and parental voice. One of her passions being that all children receive a quality education, no matter what there life’s status be, wealthy or poor, does not matter, all children deserve an equal start when it comes to education.

Betsy’s interest in the public school system began at a young age, as she watched her own mother, a public schoolteacher; and then later, when she sent her own children to school. She has served as an in-school mentor for at risk children for 15 years in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area schools. Working hard to create educational choices for children in 25 states and the District of Columbia. Visit Betsy’s profile on twitter.com.

I believe, with her past history of being a philanthropist, and her love for educating and creating a better education system for all children, she was a good choice for U.S. Secretary of Education and will serve her term well.

ClassDojo – Bringing School and Home Together

Gone are the days of children coming home from school and mom having to ask about their child’s day with the same ease as pulling teeth. Gone are the days of the once a year parent teacher conference where parents met the teacher for a few minutes as they tired to get a feel for the person caring for their child five days a week. Welcome to the modern age, where parents and teachers can communicate daily to ensure their student is getting the best education and bridging the gap between school and home. This is the kind of world that Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary, founders of ClassDojo imagined. They have created a platform that encourages communication between the classroom and home. It is a media sharing app available on most media devices that allows the teacher to share how the day is going, what they are doing in the classroom, and even allows the teacher to shares photos with the parent so they can get a first hand look into their child’s day.

The application is now being used in almost 2 in 3 schools across the United States and is growing every day. With growing popularity comes growing demand for content. The next step in the process, naturally, is making a profit. With the growing demand for content, ClassDojo has partnered with Stanford University to put out a series of videos that would heighten the learning experience beyond the classroom and give parents the tools to continue the learning process throughout the day and not just the few hours they spend in a school building. A partnership with Harvard is already coming and more videos with broader topics are coming to ensure a rich diversity of subject matter available. Many teachers and parents alike are excited about the new ground up changes that are being made available, and in such an easy to use format. This will single handedly change the learning process, making it more accessible to students and teachers and parents.

This new bridge will bring together communities and make the dispersal of information for more wide spread than we could have ever hoped for and the potential is limitless at this point. Investors in ClassDojo are patient with this profit producing process, and for good reason. One cannot rush a process as delicate as this one, and the product is well worth the investment.
