Betsy DeVos Proves that Education Is Not Broken

There are a lot of people that are going to take interest in Besty BeVos and the role that she has the Secretary of Education for the United States. I know that there are a lot of people that are trying to figure out what she is going next. I think that DeVos is going to do more of what she was already doing. She started the Dick and Besty DeVos foundation with her husband in 1989, and this is where she has managed to give the most of her money to education. It is was easy for her get an ideal of how the education system could thrive because she was already in a place where she was giving money to the system.What Besty DeVos has done that I think is very interesting is push the education system forward with charter schools and voucher programs. She is the type of education philanthropist that has already given her money, and now she is trying to get more taxpayers to give towards education. She is doing this through the voucher programs that she is creating.

I believe that people are going to look at what Betsy has said about accountability in the school systems. She is said that the biggest problem in the school system is the accountability. People do not know how to make the system better, but Betsy believes that accountability plays a huge role in what is happening in education. When people cannot get to a place where they are stagnant they are going to have a hard time to improve on education.What I believe that DeVos is doing is bringing new standards in education. Betsy wants to do something new in education. She wants to cut down on the amount of fraud and abuse in the system. There are a lot of people that are going to see what she is doing with the school vouchers.

A lot of people are going to be interested in how she has managed to help education evolve through her giving. The entire family has given as much as a billion in education. That is quite impressive to me, but there is still a need for more money.Betsy DeVos has a desire to make sure that they are also giving people a much better chance see a better education system. I like a person that has a plan. Betsy DeVos has shown that she had a good plan for the education system. She has been working on privatization the whole time, and now there is a better chance to make this possible. In her role as the Secretary of Education she could change everything for the education system.

ClassDojo Is Offering New Ideas That Will Enhance Learning And Development

Learning is about to take a new curve with the ClassDojo application that has been enhancing the way teachers, students and parents connect. The application is founded on the need to increase the interactions the three parties have and its services will help to improve the quality of learning. Basically, ClassDojo is working on reducing the number of visits parents make to the schools while at the same time offering new ideas for improvement and making the classroom a better and more enjoyable place.

Students will be in a position to better express their feelings and perceptions of the school environment. They can easily get the needed support to advance their goals in learning. ClassDojo connects teachers through a mobile application where teachers can offer a live feed of their students and parents can also reply with information that can improve the way their children are taught.

This will create a continuous link and inclusivity that would only be available during the end of term meetings. In fact, the application is rendering the end of term parents’ meetings obsolete because most problems are tackled immediately they arise.

The founders of ClassDojo, Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, announced the closure of the 2015 round of funding that brought together investors from different sectors. Since the startup came to operation in 2011, it has managed to raise $31 million from venture funding and although they are yet to earn any revenues, the company is more focused on delivering to the expectations of the users before they can plan of monetizing it.

More about ClassDojo

With the digital portfolio that ClassDojo is availing, student are given a voice to air their problems and needs. This is to create a culture that encourages them to take part in solving the problems that frustrate the learning process. ClassDojo is targeting making the classroom a friendly and awesome place for all students.

Since its inception, ClassDojo has managed to reach 2 in 3 schools across the U.S. and the company is targeting covering a wider region within few years to come. It is a revolutionary way of dealing with the problems that students face without necessarily inviting parents to physically take part in the process. The application is targeting to reduce the end of term meetings that parents have with teachers by offering a platform where all the issues that are covered during the meetings will be discussed.
