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.
Wessex Institute of Technology carries an unprecedented reputation with their conference program that is held at the Institute and in many different locations every year. Wessex Institute of Technology conferences offer to connect the professionals and the academic bodies. The events are designed to be an educational benefit to both bodies always encouraging trans-disciplinary research and conversations.
The first conference series was in 1995, and there are 21 scheduled for the year 2017. They will be held in locations such as Spain, the Czech Republic, Italy and the United Kingdom, and several titles to consider are Disaster Management, Water & Society, Complex Systems, BIM, Timber Structures and more. Most of the Wessex Conferences are two-day events, and for a complete information, go to www.wessex.ac.uk/conferences/2017.
The Wessex Institute Of Technology is a postgraduate institution of higher learning that is located within the New Forest National Park. Its facilities are based in the Amherest Lodge in a peaceful and natural setting surrounded by national parkland. Wessex Institute of Technology is often abbreviated as WIT and is an official UK postgraduate school.
The institute was established in 1986. Its predecessor was the Computational Mechanics Institute that was founded in 1981 and dissolved in 1985. WIT has three main functions. The first is research into subjects such as engineering, architecture, urban design, conservation of natural resources and mathematics.
The second function of the WIT is collaboration and diffusion of knowledge. This is achieved by hosting conferences at its campus, as well as sponsoring ones abroad. The third function of the Wessex Institute of Technology is publication. The institute publishes research and information from Wessex Institute Of Technology journals both online and in print format.
