An Amibitious Couple's Blog Experiment

ClassDojo is an app on the rise. Started in 2011, it quickly raised $31 million in venture capital and began distributing its first iteration to teachers throughout the United States. Today, ClassDojo is used in over 90% K-8 schools in the U.S. This success is largely due to a commitment to solve the problems teachers grapple with most combined with a firm footing in the proven psychological principles of positive reinforcement and rewarding children’s successes at every step of the learning process.

From ivory tower to schoolhouse

Much of ClassDojo’s unique approach is derived straight from the original psychological research of prominent academics. These include child psychologists like James Heckman, Carol Dwek and Angela Duckworth, among others. The app’s creators have synthesized these schools of thought into a cohesive protocol of rewarding academic successes thus creating a system of positive incentives to keep kids hooked on learning. Many of these techniques are very similar to those employed by game developers to improve user retention.

For example, children using the app interact with a friendly reptilian ninja named Mojo. Along with his gang of anthropomorphic monsters, Mojo leads kids through a video game-like environment of goals and rewards similar to an interactive game. This technique has proven extremely effective not only in keeping kids interested in class work but also in subtly shaping their worldviews in a way which the apps creators hope will be pro-social.

Recently, the startup began distributing a serious of short, five minute videos meant to help children consider common scenarios in ways which promote positive thinking and instill moral sense. One of those videos concerns empathy and how to view situations from other people’s perspective. The video has received much applause from teachers, some of whom even say they noticed an immediate change in the way their students interacted with each other. It’s little projects like these that make ClassDojo truly unique.

Another way ClassDojo provides positive incentives for kids is through keeping parents informed of their child’s progress throughout the day. This means that if a child does well on an assignment or make a good class presentation parents can be alerted immediately, even watching in real time through a video feed. This means children can expect not just to be rewarded for good work in class but also from proud parents when they get home.

These are just some of the features propelling ClassDojo to the top ranks of education apps. For more information, please visit classdojo.com.

Bruce Levenson is one of the most respected businessmen in the United States. Last year, he decided to sell the Atlanta Hawks basketball team, together with the operating rights to the Philips Arena. To make the transaction successful, Levenson had to hire reliable banking institutions. He chose the Goldman Sachs and Circle Sports.

Several months later, the two banks announced that the Hawks had been sold successfully. Antony Ressler is the leader of the group that acquired the basketball team. However, reports indicate that the price the team was sold is lower than what the banks had promised Bruce Levenson. Before the transaction, Goldman Sachs had promised the businessman that he would get one billion for the team and the operating rights to the Philips Arena.

After the sale had been completed, it was clear that the bankers failed to deliver the amount they had promised the businessman and the rest of the former Hawks team owns. Antony Ressler paid seven hundred and thirty dollars for the team and the Philips Arena. The bankers said that this was the highest bid. Levenson and his group were expecting a higher amount.

ESPN experts and others in the sporting industry, however, did not agree with the first promises made by the bankers. These professionals have enough experience, and they warned that the one billion price was extremely high for the consumers to purchase the team. One of them said that the team was only capable of attracting nine hundred million dollars. One sports economist, Andrew Zimbalist predicted that the team would be sold for less than seven hundred and fifty million dollars. Although the bankers did not take his advice seriously, it turned out to be the correct one.

Bruce Levenson, however, made a huge profit from the sale of the Hawks. However, experts and economists in the sports industry say that the team was oversold, and a lot of money was lost at the bidding table. For more info visit brucelevenson.com.

As an entrepreneur and internet executive, Josh Verne has gathered over two decades of experience in starting small businesses and growing them into leading multichannel businesses. He is the founder and current CEO of Flocku.com.

 

FlockU is a mobile app that allows a peer to peer exchange for students in college. It shares viral content that covers sports, entertainment, news, exams, among others. The platform was created by a network of university students to enable young people read, watch, and share entertaining content to wind off their busy day in class.

 

Josh Verne has been sharing his ideas on how to succeed in the business industry. Here are the tips:

 

Be a Leader and Not a Boss

 

There are two categories in management. You can manage as a boss, or as a leader. Josh explains that bosses use their titles to accomplish goals. They demand respect at all costs and put their best interest forward.

A leader, on the other hand, earns respect by placing his people or employees ahead of himself. That earned respect is what drives the results and accomplish goals they set together with the team.

 

Embrace the Principle of Win-Win

 

Never allow yourself into a deal where there is a win-lose situation. Strive to endeavor in business transactions and ventures where both parties win. Your client must win to keep them coming back for more business, and you must also win to boost your revenues and expansion plans.

 

 

Speak Less, Listen More

 

As a business, entrepreneur, strive to listen more and speak less. The point is, when you listen, you gather more critical information that may help your business. By talking, you only share what you already know.

 

Live a Balanced Life

 

Learn to balance your life. Money may not solve every problem in your life. Conversely, a loving family that is broke may not enjoy their lives to the fullest. A balanced life is when you make progress in every area of your life including health, wealth, personal growth, and relationships.

 

Figure Out Your Passion

If you need to succeed in life, engage in something you are passionate about. That fire in your belly is what will drive you to your success.

Today’s world has turned into a negative one and that makes me very, very sad. It seems like instead of picking each other up, we are tearing each other down. There are certain websites that like to look for anything to get clicks and bring people down. It is a vicious cycle and it has really gotten out of hand. That is why Keith Mann is trying to put a stop to it and make positive changes in the world as much as he can. With Uncommon Schools, he is looking to help children go to college, get an education, and further their lives.

 

Instead of saying his hands are tired and not doing a single thing, he is holding fundraisers that are raising over twenty-two thousand dollars for The Uncommon School Districts. This is something that Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners is incredibly passionate about and is involved in as much as possible. When it comes to the police, he knows there have been a lot of negative stories about them. However, he knows a lot about the police thanks to his uncle that is a detective. He knows the struggles and hard work that goes into being a policeman or a policewoman.

 

It is one of those things where people don’t realize the importance of police until they need them. They are always there and they are only a phone call away. They are truly there for the people and they will make sacrifices for the betterment of the people. There are a lot of times where they are away from their families and they miss important family events.

 

Keith Mann does not think that one or two bad cops should be seen as the whole police force. That is not how they do their job and that is now how they live their lives. These are people that have signed up for a very demanding job, both physically and emotionally. They know it and they don’t complain about it. However, by him treating the NYPD 54th precinct to lunch two times, they get a real boost of happiness and a feel of appreciation.

Dr. Brian Bonar seems to find a new interest every time that intrigues him. Lately that interest in the restaurant business, and he’s decided it’s time to give California visitors something remarkable to taste. One of his latest most famous acquisitions has been an Californian and French cuisine called Bellamy’s in Escondido, CA to which he hired an award-winning chef, Patrick Ponsaty.

One might not have thought that Bonar, who to this point had spent his career in business management intertwined with technology would be pouring his resources into culinary arts. But he loves the idea of visitors getting a rich taste of San Diego County, and now he’s expanding his restaurant holdings to a Bandy Canyon ranch.

Bonar got into business back in the early 1980s when he got his degrees from Strathclyde University in Scotland, and later Staffordshire University in England. He was an expert manager and marketer who worked 17 years for IMB UK Limited, helping grow the then computer manufacturer and technology giant into European markets.

He would later relocate to the US where he would work for several more technology corporations including QMS Management, the Amanda Company, Bezier Systems, and later Rastek and Adaptec Corporations, many of which market printing hardware and software solutions.

But most notably Brian Bonar became a key figure who promoted professional employer organizations (PEO), starting first with Imaging Technologies who merged with a key PEO SourceOne Group, and then Trucept Inc. Professional employer organizations basically are independent companies that provide human resource and accounting services in a packaged product to businesses, usually small and mid-sized businesses that couldn’t otherwise afford a human resources department.

The PEO usually is listed as an employee’s company of record on tax documents, considering the PEO usually does the recruiting, hiring, payroll, and employee benefits packages. The company that hired the PEO still has the final say over employee activities and hiring or firing them.

Bonar helped establish Trucept as a major PEO and helped implement payroll and hours tracking software into their system. He also served as CEO and chairman of the board at the Dalrada Financial Corporation, a company that puts together these employee benefits packages. Imaging Technologies evolved into a complete printing and copy machine service company with ongoing support and proprietary software under Bonar’s leadership. And it was only just a few years ago that Bonar started getting involved in the restaurant business.
