Securus Technologies

Securus Technologies is an advanced corrections facility technology company that was founded in 1986. I’ve seen there base office in Dallas, Texas, but they have offices all over the country and continues to grow every day. They are currently working with over 2,500 prisons all over the United States. They are very focused on advances in technology and in just three years they had invested over $600 million in patents, acquisitions, and innovative technologies.

 

I find it very important to invest in a company that is focused on customer service. Securus has devoted itself to the needs of the people within the correctional and law enforcement agencies. They work to bring quality service and good calling signals to all over their customers, which is the main reason they caught my attention. As of right now, they are one of the largest telecommunication companies within the correctional facility community. They serve prisons in 45 states, Canada, and Mexico. They provide cell phones service to over a million person occupants that live all over the world. I also noticed that they have made several impressive acquisitions over the past several years, including Guarded Exchange, Jpay, and CellBlox.

 

As I mentioned, Securus is known for their outstanding customer service. That is supported by the comments and reviews of their customers and clients. These comments came from the officials in correctional facilities all over the world. Securus is constantly creating new services and options for their clients, and that is what these comments are in reference to. One corrections facility was able to use Securus to identify an inmate in possession of contraband. The calls were also used to discover the use of drugs, alcohol, and access to cell phones. Another facility identified a potential safety threat using Securus’ advanced technology. This was all thanks to the covert alert ability.

How has Success Academy avoided the problems public schools often have?

Public education in the United States is in crisis. So much so, American students tend to fall far below their counterparts in other developed countries in testing, and within the United States public school students are failing or dropping out in record numbers.

 

Charter schools in the U.S., however, are often educating and graduating students with exceptional testing scores and with the ability to be accepted at some of the best universities in the country. Charter schools like New York-based Success Academy network are doing so without any of the typical problems public schools have to face. How has this happened, and what has Success Academy done to avoid the problems public schools generally face.

 

Discipline, a dress code and hard work — Much of the life of a student at a Success Academy school is based around three things. Discipline, a dress code and hard work.

 

What that means is, unlike in public schools where dress code is lax, where discipline is overlooked as teachers are simply overwhelmed, and where hard work is not stressed, Success Academy stresses all three.

 

That is because its founder believes, if these three things are covered it then leaves the school free to offer a high quality education for all of its students, without having to waste its precious time and resources on other things.

 

The type of education a Success Academy student receives — The type of education a typical student at a Success Academy receives is markedly different from that of a normal public school as well.

 

Instead, of being stuck in a classroom all day listening to a teacher talk, a Success Academy student only has 80 minutes of formal instruction. The rest of the day is spent working on group projects with peers, inquiry-based learning and being involved in electives like playing chess, dancing, photography, robotics and entrepreneurship.

 

For a Success Academy student that means, while discipline may be strict, the education itself and the being in school is fun and, while subjects like English, math and science are stressed, they are presented in a way that students enjoy.

 

No wonder Success Academy students test in the top 10 percent of the state in all the core subjects.

Lovaganza: Bringing Technology And Peace

Lovaganza from Colin Hesterly on Vimeo.

Lovaganza will begin their worldwide caravan tour in 2017. Released sequentially from that tour will be the event’s first trilogy of films, on which principal photography has already begun. During the tour, a new kind of cinema will be revealed called IMMERSCOPE. IMMERSCOPE features a screen that is one hundred and eighty degrees, producing theatrically intimate viewing of films in similitude to three dimensions without the need for any kind of glasses. Imagine all the exciting immersive things which come from 3D–the spectacle and intrigue–combined with the intimacy of a live theatrical production. Now imagine it all on a huge screen with vibrant colors and deeply moving entertainment drawing in viewers. This is something like IMMERSCOPE, soon to be featured on Lovaganza’s traveling caravan, and the 2020 main event.

Lovaganza was originally slated for a 2015 release, but as technology developed, the producers realized that this was too early for what they had planned. Wisely waiting for technology to catch up with their designs, the people behind Lovaganza decided to whet the world’s appetite with a traveling convoy which showcases not just the technology and upcoming films, but the core premise behind the Lovaganza extravaganza that will launch internationally. The launch will happen in 2020, and the events will last for four months. Lovaganza is set to take place in Oceania, America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and The Middle East. With the timeframe involved in the pre-launch caravan, and the four months of launch that are coming soon, potentially billions will be able to experience the joy and immersion Lovaganza’s new cinematic innovation portends.

But there’s more than just movies to get excited about. Lovaganza will also feature groundbreaking technology in booths across each event center’s spread like what was traditionally seen at the World’s Fairs of yesteryear on j-scott.com. From interactive booths with new tech to presentations and live entertainment, there are quite a few recommendable attractions in the works; and they’re designed to delight the eyes and minds of people from all ages, people groups, and genders.

It’s four years until Lovaganza will bring its ground-breaking new technology to the world; but that’s four years which will definitely pass quickly as buzz and intrigue about this event increases on itself with the coming years. Check out updates and news at lovaganza.com.

ClassDojo to Roll Out Student Stories to Allow Better Sharing of Classwork

Since not many parents get to know what their kids do at school apart from just homework, ClassDojo intends to change all that by including Student Stories to its application. This new platform will allow students to share classwork activities such as poems and experiments through videos and photos with their parents.

Liam Don, the Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of ClassDojo, told The 74 most students only share their homework activities with their parents while the other exciting activities are left out. Consequently, he expressed his hopes in boosting student learning, as dinner table interactions and conversations about school or class will increase.

Educators such as Stephanie Smith, a Roy Waldron fourth grade teacher, also indicated positive impacts of the Student Stories in an interview with The 74. According to her, the platform will enable students to archive as well as gain pride in their activities. Archiving their work will give students a chance to assess their growth.

Other educators such as Cindy Price asserted that the new tool will promote self-confidence among the students since it will trigger and increase a sense of pride in each of their activities in class. ClassDojo expects the new platform to gain enormous popularity among parents and teachers in comparison to its existing platforms such as Class Story and School Story.

ClassDojo

ClassDojo is an education communication platform that has been garnering massive popularity in the academic or education sector, especially in the United States. A testament to this is fact is the current rating whereby 2 in 3 schools utilize the services of ClassDojo. This year, the platform reached a record of 85,000 schools in the US boasting of both private and public academic institutions. It makes it easier for teachers, parents and students to connect with each other in a bid to share the activities taking place at school. This is usually done through the sharing of messages, videos as well as pictures.

Apart from assisting teachers in implementing progressive ideas regarding education matters such as personalized learning, it has turned schools and class rooms into close-knit communities. Consequently, this has created a positive culture in schools and among students, which share the belief of improving education together. Apart from the impressive leadership qualities of the company’s leaders, it boasts of a team of educators, designers and engineers whose background can be traced from various companies such as Google, Airbnb, Dropbox, Y Combinator as well as charter and public schools.
