Adam Milstein is a true son of Israel. Born in Haifa, he followed Arial Sharon during the Yom Kippur war and helped stop, and repel, the invasion of the Egyptian army. After his military service, he returned to school and graduated from the Israeli Institute of Technology, commonly known as the Technion, with a degree in business and economics. He then moved to the United States and earned an MBA from the University of Southern California. Visit Hager Pacific website to know more about Adam Milstein.
Adam Milstein’s life changed the day he told his young daughters he expected them to marry Jewish men. They replied that Milstein himself lived a secular life and made no effort to emphasize his Jewish identity. Realizing that Israelis living in America were losing their Jewish identities, Adam Milstein became a full-time Jewish advocate and a leader of the Jewish community: writing, speaking, and working to reinforce the Jewish identity and strengthen the connection between Israel and the United States through the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Recently, Adam Milstein spoke out about radical Islam and its link to other radical organizations.
Radical Islam, as taught in Mosques and Madrasas, centers on the destruction of Israel and is joining other radical organizations on the extreme right and now on the extreme left. These disparate organizations are increasing coordination of their actions and ideas to synergetic effect. Presently, radical organizations are forming alliances across the political spectrum and using those alliances to coordinate anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli activities.
In spite of the fact that radical Muslims beat women for failure to follow extreme dress codes and execute gays, the extreme left puts aside their differences to join in a common anti-Western, anti-modern, anti-Jewish cause.
In the extreme left-wing view, Jews are a powerful group oppressing weaker Muslims, both in the Middle East and in the rest of the world.
Leftist students at Tufts University recently published a “Disorientation Guide” attacking Israel as a “white supremacist” state and a colonial occupier. One of the authors argued that the guide could not be anti-Semitic because she is herself a Jew. View Adam Milstein’s profile on Facebook.
When it comes to educational technology in schools, administrators at districts defer to the judgment of teachers on what they want to incorporate into their classrooms. This means that when businesses in this industry want their product and/or service to succeed they need to make it something that a teacher actually wants to have in their classroom. There are a number of things teachers are looking for.
First, they want something that solves a problem they actually have. Unless they view something as necessary for their classroom they don’t to use it. Some edtech companies make an assumption about what teachers need rather than actually talking to teachers. One company that didn’t make this mistake was ClassDojo. The development team talked to a number of teachers before and during their process of creating a mobile app that would fit their requirements.
Another thing companies need to do in this sector is help teachers adopt the edtech technology. They need the company behind the tool to support them as they implement the tool into the real world classroom. ClassDojo does this as well by showing teachers the best way for them, their students, and the parents of the students to create a positive culture using this app. Teachers have access to a “Zendesk” that teachers can use it to create a classroom community.
Classdojo is a communication platform that was released August 2011. It is based in San Francisco, California, and was co-founded by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary. Since that time it has gone on to being used by 2 in 3 schools in the United States. There are international versions of ClassDojo as well and it has been translated into many languages.
ClassDojo facilitates communication between teachers, parents, and students. These parties can communicate through the app at any time which helps everyone connect together in order to support the education of the child. The forms of communication the ClassDojo app supports are text-style messaging, photos, and video. It helps everyone work together as a team which results in better grades for children.
