ClassDojo Is a New and Remarkable Link Between Schools and Parents

ClassDojo is a brilliant new concept that helps to bridge the enormous gap between parents and the school environment, showcasing the interactions of children when in the classroom. ClassDojo is an Android smart phone application. It was first developed in 2011 and once it received sufficient seed funding it began operating bringing parents and the school environment closer together. What this ingenious application (app) does is to fulfill the parental need to inquire about a child’s school day that before usually elicited a simple but unsatisfying one-word response. This ClassDojo app gives feedback on the child’s progress while in the classroom. The ClassDojo idea was started in San Francisco in 2011 and maintains an office there. Since its beginning, ClassDojo has expanded to include 3.5 million students and teachers in 60 countries throughout the world.

This brilliant app knows few barriers. It works no matter what the size of the class or the language spoken. The world, including third world and poor countries, are using cell phones and smart phone app technology at an almost alarming rate. It is not unusual to see panhandlers in the United States of America talking on their cell phones and the sight of a native attired in primitive tribal dress holding an I-Phone is not unusual.

This brilliant app brings parents much closer to their children’s progress through the education process and is a way for children to boast of their classroom performance attainments to parents. All too often the school experience has been off limits to the parents and this is a way of connecting parents to the schools working with the future leaders of our world.

Talk Fusion CEO Bob Reina Talks Innovation and Branding

When you are amongst the best at what you do, the word tends to get around. So it shouldn’t surprise anybody to see that Talk Fusion founder and CEO Bob Reina has been an active contributor to the Huffington Post over the past several years. Reina’s success with his own video marketing company has been inspiring to watch and he has a ton of logic and expertise to share in both tech and marketing. Recently the Huffington Post underwent a brand change as they renamed themselves HuffPost while refocusing the subjects that they will be broaching.

 

Bob Reina is most well known for his work with Talk Fusion. Over the pat decade we have seen Talk Fusion evolve into one of the largest video marketing firms on the internet. Their ability to bridge the gap between customer and corporation has been nothing short of game changing for the numerous clients that have sought out Reina for his advice and expertise. It is this success that has made Reina such a prolific and welcomed contributor to the HuffPost. In fact, Reina’s work was first up after the rebranding effort by the HuffPost team. You can see two of his latest pieces of work online right now: “Promoting with Purpose: How to Understand Your Audience” as well as “How to Thrive in a Society of Quitters.”

 

When asked about the Huffington Post rebranding effort it appeared that Reina was anything but shy in his return comment. Reina said when asked about the new branding, “I’m a firm believer in the art of innovation. A brand’s growth is never complete.” It is this forward thinking concept that keeps Talk Fusion on the constant cusp of something new, better, and more effective. It is also this mindset that guides Reina in his content curation for the HuffPost reader-base.

 

This past year saw major success for Reina and the team at Talk Fusion. Talk Fusion’s Video Chat app landed a coveted honor: the 2016 Communication Solutions Product of the Year award. Talk Fusion will continue their ascent so long as Bob Reina is at the steering wheel, we believe.
