ClassDojo Now Giving Students The Opportunity To Tell Stories Of Their Work To Parents

ClassDojo is a classroom assistance app that is doing wonders for teachers, students, and parents. The app makes for a much more connected network between the three instead of isolating them, and ClassDojo has been commended for helping to bring a more positive environment for learning. According to TheJournal.com, ClassDojo has integrated a storyline feature into their platform. Now whenever students are completing a classroom activity, they can take photos of their work and immediately post it to their ClassDojo storyline, similarly to how you might post pictures to a Facebook timeline, and teachers can edit and finalize the story posts for parents to see. This has helped students become proud of the work they’ve done and given parents a live look-in on class activities.

ClassDojo was started several years ago by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary, two grad students from the UK who had relocated to San Francisco. Don and Chaudhary were not happy with the direction that both the US and UK’s education system was headed in, so they decided to try something different that could change the course of classrooms. ClassDojo kicked off from there and raised about $1.6 million initially, and after a large $20 million boost in fundraising at the end of last year, ClassDojo has raised over $30 million to date. The app is downloadable free of charge from both Google Play and the Apple App Store, and the service is going to remain free, though Chaudhary and Don plan to add premium features in the future.

ClassDojo has produced some animated short video series that show how students can learn subjects that may not be their strengths. Chaudhary and Don believe that all students can do well when given a push in the right direction, and the videos are designed to stretch their imaginations. Because teachers can send constant updates to parents about students learning abilities and behavioral progress, schools have been able to phase out parent-teacher meetings over time. The app is becoming popular enough now that 2 out of 3 schools in the states now use ClassDojo, and school administrators have easy access to each classroom’s profile.

Hugo Chavez Hand Picked His Predecessor According To José Manuel González

Venezuela turned into a superstar on the world stage when Hugo Chavez was running the country. Oil exports were producing a huge influx of cash, and Chavez was spending that cash on programs to help the poor. According to José Manuel González, the former President of Venezuela’s Chamber of Commerce, Chavez was a popular president that helped the country and hurt it at the same time. González is the current Deputy of the National Assembly for the state of Guárico, and a major figure in the country’s agricultural industry. He watched Chavez spend money and realized that he was spending too much on unnecessary upgrades that helped Chavez, and his inner circle of government leaders. The socialist leader put people will little experience in jobs they couldn’t handle.

One of those people was Vice-President Nicolas Maduro. Maduro, a former bus driver, and union leader got into politics and made an impression on Chavez. Chavez died in 2013, and the former bus driver took over as president. Mr. González recently said that day would go down as one of the saddest days in his country’s history. Maduro has turned the oil-rich nation into a food-starved, riot-filled nation with no money. Maduro has cut government worker’s hours, closed shopping malls, confiscated businesses, and farms and put the military in charge of distributing food. González said the farms in his state have not been producing food for months because the government is letting them sit dormant.

Mr. González also said the government is too important to be left to politicians like Maduro that lack experience and play dictator instead of leader. The food shortage is so bad that women are crossing the border into Colombia and getting food to bring back to their families. Kimberly-Clark recently closed their factory in Venezuela because there are no raw materials and no money. Citibank is closing the account of Venezuela’s central bank due to lack of funds. Maduro claims all of those issues are the product of imperialist conspiracy against his country.

There is a petition circulating in cities across the country to remove Maduro. González thinks there will be enough signatures to start the removal process, but nothing is certain in Venezuela these days.

10 Life Hacks Wengie Video Recap

In a recent video by YouTube beauty blogger Wengie, she gives ten tips to viewers about an array of different topics.

She starts the video by showing how to remove lint and pilling from an old sweater by using a razor on it. Her next hack shows an easy way to remove keys from a key ring without ruining your nails. She uses a staple remover to stretch the ring open so the key can slide off easily or so you can add a new key to the ring. The next tip from Wengie shows us how to not forget things in the morning. She suggest stacking everything you need underneath the one item you would never forget (like keys or your phone) and putting it all near the door so you don’t forget anything when you’re in a rush to leave the house.

Hack number seven shows how to effectively cross out sensitive information you wrote down on paper. Wengie suggests writing random numbers and letters over top of it instead of just crossing it out to make it harder for others to read. The next tip she shows us is a way to ensure your clothes are always folded and put away. She suggest throwing all your clothes on your bed after doing laundry so you can’t sleep until you have put them away. Next Wengie explains that you can cut stiff cardboard, slip it into a Ziploc bag, put any papers you don’t want wrinkled or wet in the bag, then put it all into your backpack or purse. This is great in case your bag is disorderly or you get caught in the rain.

Wengie’s next tip is to put newspaper at the bottom of your garbage can to catch any liquid leakage from the garbage bag. She also suggests sticking an upside-down wall hook to your garbage can to keep bag handles in place. Next she explains that you can use a marker to mark the shower handle position for your ideal water temperature. Then she says you can use a colander to sift out cereal crumbs at the bottom of the bag, which you can then use on ice cream or in cookies. Her last tip is to take photos of your fridge and cupboards to avoid buying things you already have at home when you’re grocery shopping.

Wikipedia: Fun and Games, or Decisive Tool?

Football is a game of skill, immense athleticism, and raw talent. Who better exemplifies those skills than Robert Brady of Ireland. Scoring a goal in the 85th minute against Italy, Brady put Ireland in the winning circle for the Euro 2016 Football Tournament. As one might expect, Brady’s name was on the tip of every Irishman’s tongue. Ireland celebrated him in the best way they know how. So how did his teammates choose to honor him?

Like most football fans, you want to know more about your favorite players. Especially the rising stars. But if you were to search Robert Brady’s name between 10:00pm and 12:00am on June 22nd, you might have seen something a little odd. His teammates began to make Wikipedia edits Brady’s name to things like ” Robert “The Messiah” Brady. And adding things like “Brady is recognized as a god.” In the body of his page. As creative and funny as this may have been, perhaps they should have left it to the professionals to update a Wikipedia page.

Services like http://www.getyourwiki.com/ can not only edit your football page, they make it easy and painless too. With tools like the “Objective Revision Evaluation Service“, an A.I. made by Wikipedia, it’s never been easier to publish accurate information. Hiring a professional to create a Wikipedia page for your business can not only be beneficial but incredibly easy. So why not sit back and avoid getting a headache completely. Hire a Wikipedia editor to take out the guesswork and time consuming task of learning how to make a Wikipedia page. Of course, if you’d rather have the Irish National Football Team fans make a Wiki page for you, that’s an option too.

Common Uses for Shea Butter

Extracted from the nuts of Shea trees, shea butter presents a natural source for vitamin A and E, crucial elements for anyone’s skin care routine. Once taken from the tree, manufacturers prepare shea butter by cold pressing it; preservatives and chemicals are avoided in its preparation. The final yield is a scentless, solid, beige block that melts when it contacts skin.

The uses for shea butter are plentiful. It soothes rashes and insect bites, the sting of sunburn, and can be used to repair dry, cracked skin. Shea butter relieves some of the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis, and frost bite and can help tired or tense muscles. It also helps promote the disappearance of stretch marks.

EuGenia Shea offers a wide variety of both unrefined and scented shea butter. Eugenia provides its customers with several types of shea butter formulated for dermatological disorders, relief during pregnancy, and everyday use. The company offers a mix and match gift box that allows the purchaser to choose the fragrance they desire and receive it in a decorative tin. They also provide a subscription delivery service that makes restocking a dwindling shea butter supply easier.

EuGenia was founded by Naa-Sakle Akuete, a Wall Street analyst, and her mother, EuGenia, the owner of the company that harvests nuts from Shea trees.. The company not only prides itself on a superior product; it also promotes women-driven business, fair wages, and job training opportunities to women in Ghana who help to harvest nuts from Shea trees and prepare the product for distribution.
