There are many companies out there that are trying to create new ways for kids to learn and enjoy their academic careers, but few have gone as far as Class Dojo to create a better classroom and schooling community for kids as well as their parents and teachers. Class Dojo has spent the last seven years expanding on their platform to help students at the elementary level build their communication. There aren’t many educational platforms on the market like Class Dojo because they focus on communication building and community building as the primary method of improving every student’s learning experience. Most other educational programs are designed at running student’s through courses to learn new information in specialized ways, which also comes at a cost.
Class Dojo has been free since it first launched, helping thousands of students all over the world today simply through their community building app. Class Dojo’s app is user-friendly for virtually anyone that participates in the learning experience, including children and those that are not tech savvy. Since the platform has spread all over the world today, helping student’s in classrooms a variety of different countries, Class Dojo offers support for over 30 different languages. Classrooms around the globe are steadily adopting the platform and more than two-thirds of all elementary schools in the US use Class Dojo.
Communication is one of the most difficult things to build when it comes to the education system since it requires a little more than a standard curriculum that most schools provide. Class Dojo provides parents with an easy way to stay connected to their students as well as their teacher at all times of the school day and even when school is not in session. Teachers can directly message parents through Class Dojo’s app to discuss schools events or their child’s progress. More importantly, improving communication for students, parents, and teachers will help them build closer relationships to form a community all around.
Vijay Eswaran is not afraid to take risks. He teaches this practice to others who are graduating from school and looking to enter into the workforce. Vijay understands that it is important for people to find their first job and establish themselves within industry. However, there are a number of variables in place that can shake up the situation. Technology moves at a fast pace. Many jobs will not be available for the person who achieved a degree or certificate in a specific field by the time they graduate.
It is important to gain experience. However, Vijay Eswaran teaches that new workers should look to create job opportunities as well as discover job opportunities. Specialists should look to to operate in the field of which a they are qualified. Part of this is deciding whether to work for a large operation or a small startup company. The work environment must match the person’s personality in order for the relationship to be successful.
There are major differences between startup companies and large firms. Each of them have their advantages and disadvantages to the new job seeker. A startup company has unique attributes because of its operating nature. Everything is new and growing. The new executive will have the opportunity to make a huge impact in a company that is expanding at a rapid rate. They will have a great deal of responsibility and little room to delegate certain tasks.
A large corporation on the other hand will have established policies in place. It will be a much simpler arena to operate in. However, change will be very slow if any. A new executive’s impact will be very small at the beginning.
New executives must buy into the vision statement of a small startup company. They will be directly involved in the shaping of the organization. Their influence will be intimately felt.

In the light of Fortress Investment Groups history, it was obtained by SoftBank in December, 2017. Historically, SoftBank has also been known for acquiring creative tech start up companies. SoftBank was looking for a company like Fortress Investment Group that could function independently in New York. Softbank’s goal is to get out of debt financing and get more into private equity through expanding its horizons. Though many have questioned this deal, it will enable Fortess Investment Group to be a private company again. There will be many advantages for both companies. Fortress is an operating lender and equity partner in real estate and mortgage servicing rights, which gets SoftBank closer to its goal of private equity. The merging of these to companies will no doubt be profitable for all involved and invested.
The difference between evidence and anecdotal evidence has been one of the major bugbears for millions of people across the world. Rocketship Education CEO, Preston Smith recently took on NPR over whether an article written by blogger Anya Kamenetz was accurate in reporting facts. The article focused on an interview with an unhappy Rocketship education parent and a parent who enjoyed their experience; within the article, the author claimed parents were leaving Rocketship Education locations due to unhappiness. Smith and many media experts stated the standard of reporting was low with little questioning of anecdotal evidence by the author.
The integrity of Rocketship Education and its CEO have rarely been called into question with the work completed seen as of a high standard. Rocketship Education has an advantage over other charter schools in the U.S. as its founders and main management team were working as educators in the public school system of San Jose, California when they established the charter school network. After creating the charter school system in 2006, Rocketship Education is now operating in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
In the NPR article, Anya Kamenetz raised a number of issues regarding the standards within the Rocketship Education schools network. Among those discussed was a question of whether the classroom environment at various locations was a healthy one conducive to learning. CEO Preston Smith believes the environment in Rocketship Education schools is an impressive one for learning in a safe and secure fashion with the policies of the school in line with those of the public education system. Higher Journalistic standards are required in the view of Preston Smith as the hyperbole surrounding the charter school movement is one which is not helpful for people educators or parents. Smith explains the learning environment in Rocketship Education schools is subject to campus-wide policies designed to offer the least disruption throughout each day.
