ClassDojo Partners with Elon Musk’s School to Create Critical Thinking Tool for Students

ClassDojo is a communication platform used to connect teachers to students and their parents. ClassDojo was founded by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary and the platform was launched in 2011. The platform’s final version was launched in 2015 and is currently used in 180 different countries including the United States where it is used by 90% of school districts. The platform is controlled by teachers who register for an account and enter their class information and invite students and their parents to join the app. This allows both students and teachers to monitor their individual progress. Teachers can also leave specific feedback and rewards students on this app. This has made communication and clarity among teachers, students and parents more efficient and easy. ClassDojo made Inc’s list of the “25 Most Disruptive Companies” in 2017.

Recently ClassDojo and Elon Musk’s private school Ad Astra have partnered to develop a new tool to be used among elementary and middle school teachers and students. This new tool will include “Conundrums” which will be critical thinking puzzles. The “Conundrums” will present open-ending problems relating to critical thinking or ethics that will then be discusses by students to produce a solution. These problems will be more complicated than the typical problems encompassed in elementary and middle school curricula. An example of a “Conundrum” that will be available on this platform poses the situation of “Mojo” and his friends finding a dinosaur skeleton on someone else’s land. The question is then posed of “Who does it belong to?” The students are then given multiple options to choose based on their decision. Ad Astra is not using this tool, but the tool’s purpose is to offer the same type of critical thinking used by Ad Astra. This tool is set to be released to teachers and students this fall.

Philanthropist Adam Milstein

Perched very near the pinnacle of positive Israeli and American relations resides a man by the name of Adam Milstein. He and his wife, Gila, have been instrumental in funding and providing services like partnership development, consulting and fundraising for programs related to Jewish continuity and education. His efforts have helped strengthen the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and his labors have very positively impacted the relationship between the United States and Israel.

This philanthropist co-founded the Israeli-American Council. He is on the board of numerous worthy organizations, and he helped found Sifriyat Pijama B’America through which free books written in Hebrew are provided monthly to more than 70 families who are Jewish-American.

Adam Milstein’s philosophy for the operation of his philanthropic arm consists of three parts. First, the Milstein Family Foundation he created believes in active philanthropy. He and the staff of his foundation invest a large portion of time and contribute a tremendous amount of expertise to each program, project and organization they support. Of course, it is a given that significant levels of financial resources go to these worthy causes to help ensure their success.

The second principle of Adam Milstein’s philosophy involves his desire to have an impact on individuals throughout their lifetime, not just momentarily. At his direction, the foundation looks for and funds the development of organizations that remain connected to their target individuals during all the stages of life. From childhood through adolescence and then during the many phases of adulthood, the partner organizations of Adam Milstein’s philanthropic outreach develop and maintain deep connections with their targeted population.

The third and final principle upon which Adam Milstein founded his philanthropic philosphy is his desire for the organizations he assists to have an even greater impact by partnering with other non-profit entities aiming for the same desired results. The noble efforts of this man and the foundation that bears his name have produced major positive results in the Israeli-American arena.

Deirdre Baggot Explains Why Interest In BPCI Advanced Is Booming

Denver, Colorado-based Deirdre Baggot, Ph.D., MBA, RN, says that there has been a big surge in hospitals and physician groups signing up for the new bundled payment system Bundled Payment for Care Initiative Advanced or BPCI Advanced. She says that the had to sign up on or before August 8 and this new system has a start date of October 1. As a consultant, she has helped more than 200 healthcare organizations start their own bundled payment programs in the past and has never seen so much interest as exists today. Read more articles at American College of Cardiology for more info.

She said that the difference with BPCI Advanced that is generating so much interest is that it has a 5 percent bonus associated with it. Hospitals and physician groups who start using this new bundled payment system can also try it for six months and if it isn’t working out for them they can drop it as of March 1st, Deirdre Baggot said. She says that in the past it was pretty difficult getting clients to switch over to a bundled payment system because it requires the entire organization to think differently about how they approach health care.

Deirdre Baggot said that more and more commercial payers are also getting involved. They are now investing in the infrastructure that is necessary for value-based payment systems. The hard task that remains a big challenge is getting patients engaged in this new approach to healthcare, she says. She thinks that technology can help including wearables. One idea she had to increase patient engagement was to supply them with an iPad that they could take home and access telehealth through it.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing at Southern Illinois University. Her MBA was earned at Loyola University – Quinlan School of Business. It was at the University of Colorado, Denver, that she acquired her doctorate.

Freedom Checks and Trump Bonus Checks: New Lucrative Investment Opportunities

Freedom Checks and Trump Bonus Checks have been featured in various financial news across America and you may be wary about it but if you take a close look at it, your perspective on them might change. The following is the guide to help you get the most out of the investment opportunities.

Trump bonus checks

Mike Burnick is the pioneer for these bonus checks and they came into being after he saw the need for people, especially those in the Armed Forces, to be rewarded for their patriotism. He recommends companies which you could invest in and be in a position to earn money from the bonus checks.

Freedom Checks

On the other side, freedom checks was coined by Matt Badiali and according to him, it is a good way for Americans to make huge amounts of money within a short period. However, some people are hesitant to invest in freedom checks owing to the many scams available in the internet. Matt Badiali’s education and work background speaks volumes about his expertise and reputation. As a geologist, he learned about workings of companies in the natural resources and interacted with various executives in the field, an experience that gave him a grasp of the potential of companies in the sectors to generate consistent profits that could be transferred to ordinary Americans.

Are they a viable investment opportunity?

They bring forward an investment opportunity that could see you earn huge amount of money. According to Badiali, early investors can earn up to 8,000% return on their investment. Statute 26-F clears the air on the freedom check. Although it was enacted 20 years ago, it attracted public attention recently. A company must meet two conditions to qualify for the Statute: generate 90% from domestic natural resources and pay investors regularly. In a video that went viral, Matt Badiali appealed to Americans to take advantage of the opportunity before it is too late. He had predicted that companies would pay over $34.8 billion in a few months, a move that has been seen has bold and strong believe in the opportunity. Master Limited Partnership (MLP) is a company that meets the two State 26-F conditions. If you invest in MLPs, you get tax benefits alongside a share of the companies’ income. Therefore, Matt Badiali has depicted freedom checks as a viable investment opportunity that you should take advantage of.
