At least 2 in 3 schools in the U.S. are now using ClassDojo and the number is projected to rise due to the reliability and configuration of the application. Unlike the once-in-a-semester meetings that would be held to review the progress of students, ClassDojo is making this a continuous process that is also going to bring students closer to their teachers.
At its establishment in 2011, the founders of ClassDojo were concerned about the growing trend where tech firms were making digital curriculum and grade books while they forgot about creating a culture and community that would unite teachers, students and parents. This is why the ClassDojo application was launched and to their surprise it has gained a lot of popularity, becoming a key element that is helping teachers to conduct their business. The application is used by teachers in more than 85, 000 schools in the U.S., both charter and private to public schools.
To make it a conducive environment for connection and empowerment, ClassDojo is designed with heavy security features. The company does not make revenue from user’s data and is privy to the security threats the application is likely to face. Privacy is also guaranteed and provided for through features that also allow the users to control their accounts. The Series B round has brought on board new investors including GSV, SignalFire and Reach Capital. The whole process was overseen by General Catalyst and is bound to make the company bigger.

People often affiliate dieting with females, but that often stems from the manner certain regimens are marketed in. Ignoring the traditional manner for marketing diets is the popular program, NutriMost. Their belief that gaining weight is genetic and installed in everybody’s unique DNA allows a team of specialists to construct plans using NRF technology. These plans are totally unique to the individual who was analyzed by the company, which results in a client losing twenty to forty pounds in only a few weeks.
Losing Weight and feeling great with NutriMost NutriMost has yet to be proven ineffective, so rivals of the company have been working tirelessly to develop their own technology that accomplishes the same task as NutriMost’s exclusive NRF technology. After their results are deemed less than favorable, desperation sets in and forces the competitors to take extreme measures. Healthy Living, for example, took a shortcut in an attempt to be more like NutriMost by swiping their promotional video. Advertising their “Can’t Lose Diet,” Healthy Living’s video is an exact replica of NutriMost’s; they even kept NM clients in the video. Surely Healthy Living has been taken to court, and NutriMost has been working tirelessly to sustain their clients, attract new ones, and win this legal battle. Though this may seem stressful, the company’s team of experts are more than prepared for the job.
Autism is a development disorder that is commonly diagnosed among young children. With a one in 68 chance of being diagnosed with autism, this is an interesting developmental disease that lacks information about the disorder despite its common diagnosis. In recent news, one individual in particular is on a mission to learn more about autism and has even started a foundation to collect donations to further fund the research of autism.

Though it is commonly known that autistic individuals communicate in a different way and that they often have a hard time in social situations, the questions that needs to be answered for Mr. Shah is the cause behind this. The research will not only help him and his family, but will also help other families around the world.
Autism Rocks was officially founded by Mr. Shah in 2014 as a foundation that is currently based in London. The inspiration behind this foundation was using the love that he and his son have form music as inspiration to developing a foundation that could bring his family together. Though this foundation is only two years old, it has raised millions of dollars and has helped further the overall advancement.
