The Educational Revolution of ClassDojo

For many years it has been a long-held tradition for the yearly parent-teacher meeting to be the only time parents and teachers really communicating. That is changing with the advent of ClassDojo. ClassDojo began in June 2011 as a means to bridge the gap between teacher, student, and parent. It has a phone app for teachers that is revolutionizing classroom and parent/teacher communication. A feature that parents especially like is a feature that allows the teacher to take and post pictures of daily classroom activities for parents to see.

 

Since its founding, ClassDojo has become so popular among teachers that it is estimated that over two-thirds of all the schools in the U.S. have at least one teacher who uses the service. At many of the schools who use it there are a lot more teachers than just one using the app frequently. It is a super easy tool for individual teachers to elect to use since there is no need for payment permission or usage from school administrators. Teachers can download the app just as easily as any other app. But teachers aren’t the only ones who love it.

 

Students love it largely because of its online point system which allows teachers to post rewards for each student for good behavior during the day. In addition, there is a relatively new feature called Student Stories which allows students to take and post teacher-approved classroom pictures. Parents love it because it allows them to maintain constant communication with the teacher. They also like being able to see and comment on what their child is doing all day. Class Dojo continues to be led by co-founders Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, who serve as CEO and CTO, respectively.

 

Now that its app is popular, ClassDojo is now focusing on making it profitable. It is looking to do this by marketing educational content to sell to its considerable teacher clientele. Teachers across the country pay hundreds of thousands every year for videos and related classroom tools. ClassDojo hopes to tap into that market. It has already begun the process with an encouraging measure of success. It is working in conjunction with Harvard University to produce educational videos. They hope to get so proficient at the process that they will eventually be churning out new videos every week. They also hope that this will also be a thing that will catch on among parents and that they will start purchasing their educational videos.

Town Residential is on the path to dominate West Side Real estate market

Town Residential, a leading luxury real estate services company is opening a new office branch in the meatpacking locality of Manhattan. The new space is just a stone throw away from the story- high park. This will be the company’s 10th Manhattan office since its entry into the real estate industry in 2010.

 

Town Residential penned down a 15-year deal for the new office space, which is 7,100 square feet and occupies the whole 2nd floor of 446 W. 14th Street. The new space is also characterized by 16-foot ceilings and a private roof deck overhead the 3-storey building. It epitomizes the creativity of Mr. Andrew Heiberger has showcased in building the Town Residential brand as a brokerage firm for luxury real estate sales.

 

The new office branch is also meant to attract brokers. According to Mr. Heiberger, the new space features an outdoor space which will allow brokers to work and schedule meetings with clients. Indeed, the effective design of the new space really sets apart Town Residential from other real estate companies. He further added that the new office branch would be home to the boutique brokerage Thomas & Ingram, which specializes in sales transactions in the West Village. What’s more, a smaller office run by Town, which is located at 45 Horatio St. in the West Village will also relocate into the new office space.

 

The locality where the new space sits has turned into a hub of high-end residential homes as more condo buildings continue to spring up. According to Mr. Heiberger, Town considers the entire West Side as a single continuous string of neighborhoods and the new office space sits right in the center of it all. Due to its prime location, this new office will cater to real estate markets from Hudson Yards all the way down to Tribeca. Only just a few months ago, Town Residential opened its head office on the ground floor of 33 Irving Place almost east of Union Square and another space at 530 LaGuardia in Greenwich Village.

 

The agreed rental fees to be paid by Town for the new office at 446 W. 14th St. remains sketchy, although lease fees for office spaces in the Manhattan region have shot up to about 90 dollars per square foot. This is because the area has developed into a popular business hub for both retailers and renters.

 

The owner of the building where the new office space sits is Town’s avid financier, Thor Equities, who owns a large chunk of the retail space in the meatpacking region. According to Mr. Heiberger, the close association with Thor played a key role in Town securing the space amidst competition from other keen tenants. Indeed, that partnership with Thor has been beneficial.
