Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit to the Rescue

I have tried to be bitter about my son going to prison. I know it was his fault in what he did. But I still wanted to blame somebody else. Honestly though, I have had one positive experience after the other ever since my child started doing his time. Securus Technologies has had a big part to play in me coming to that conclusion. They told me from the very beginning of their program that allows you to have a visit by video. You would be in the comfort of your home and your loved one in prison would be able to have a live visit with you. I didn’t want to believe something that nice would be offered to a jail inmate. You wouldn’t think that the systems in a prison are up to date on technology like that. I thought there was a catch. I chose to suffer through and continue my personal visits. But it started getting cold. And it got colder. And then the driving in the cold started taking its toll on me. I was leaving before daybreak and returning at night. I don’t know what I was trying to prove. The officers must have felt sorry for me. They continued to encourage me to get info on Securus Technologies – Christmas Video Visit. Finally, I got the information. And boy am I glad I did.

 

I decided to give Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visitation a try. After I got approved, I awaited my appointed time of visitation by computer. I really don’t know why I was so skeptical at first. When the time came, the picture popped on and there was my son. We could see each other clearly. He had the biggest smile ever. It really made my Christmas holiday special. We were able to talk and laugh and cry together. We had such a wonderful visit. It seemed that my son was happy that I didn’t have to take that long drive in the cold to come see him. He was still concerned about his mama.

 

I wouldn’t do it any other way from now on. Thanks to Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit, I learned a few lessons. I could save the wear and tear of my car. I could definitely save a ton of gas. Most of all, I would save me, myself and I. Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit, you really came to my rescue. Thank you so very much.

 

An Inmate’s Everyday Life will Improve with Securus Technology

Do you know how tough it is to serve out a prison sentence? I do. Let me tell you, prison is a terrible place to be. It is hard for many different types of reasons. However, one of the hardest things about being incarcerated has to do with family. When you are locked away in jail you do not have access to the people you love and that is difficult.

 

When I was in jail we had to make collect calls to keep in touch with family members. Collect calls were expensive and it also depended on the person answering the phone. If they decided not to accept the call, an inmate was out of luck.

 

Recently I found out about Securus Visitation Video Technology. I was really surprised by what I have discovered. People can not only talk to each other over a terminal they can also see each other. Fathers can talk to their sons and help keep them on the right path. Mothers can help their daughters to grow and family members can keep in touch with their incarcerated loved ones.

 

I mean, if we had this technology years ago when I was in jail, I honestly believe a few more people would not have went back to prison after being released.

 

After all, if an inmate has a reason to do good, chances are they will do the right thing to help improve their life.

 

The modern technology that is available for this purpose makes it easier on everyone serving time. I would just like to say that Securus is providing high quality communication services that is really helping inmates and their families to thrive.

The Evolution of Education Makes Way to Parent-Teacher Communication

ClassDojo is more than just a free app. It is a revolutionary new teaching tool that is sweeping the nation. ClassDojo is actively used by 85,000 schools in the United States to connect parents with teachers (Kolodny). The app allows for frequent check-ins that gauge student performance, classroom engagement, and other factors/benchmarks in their education (ClassDojo). The app was initially used to help improve behavioral problems(Schwartz), now it has become a sounding board for parents and teachers to communicate about the child’s education. The app helps identify where their strengths lie and communicate how they may need improvement. Approaching education positively, the teachers can even take a snap shot to share good work or a short video of the child’s strength (ClassDojo).
ClassDojo is working with Stanford’s Project for Education That Scales or PERTS; together they have been using feedback from the teachers and students to help the little learners accomplish higher goals (Schwartz) and create a dynamic classroom environment. They found that giving encouragement for achievements is more effective than giving titles such as “smart”(Toppo). Utilizing these methods students were less competitive and had higher comprehension rates. As teachers begin to reverse the ingrained belief that children have fixed intelligence, the children even began to point out others accomplishments and praise their fellow students(Schwartz). Through partnering with PERTS, the co-founders Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, are hoping to foster a more effective learning environment for students. We have to teach in the class room that all students have the capacity to learn the information; it just needs to be taught differently to some students. When a positive learning environment is painted and children receive plenty of positive encouragement classrooms band together instead of becoming competitive (Schwartz).
This all begins with the connection of parents and teachers for a more involved for of education. ClassDojo has raised 21 million in this round of venture funding and the app hasn’t even monetized yet (Kolodny). The owners and investors primary concern is how they can use this new tool to better the education system, to date 31 million have gone into this project (U,L,M,M.). Eventually, Class Dojo will be looking for ways to monetize the app such as custom yearbooks, the ability to pay for field’s trips and school lunches, and much more (Kolodny). For now they are invested in showing children that their intelligence is not fixed. They have recently released a video series for students using cute little monsters to show children the growth mind state and help teachers show the students that they have the potential to achieve any goal (Schwartz).
