ClassDojo’s mission is to reinvent classrooms by bringing teachers, students and parents closer together. Teachers use ClassDojo as a communication platform to encourage students, and get parents engaged too. Classrooms become positive places - which means there's no more ‘classroom management’. Just happier classrooms :)
We are very excited to be working with these cool little Ohbots! Using software similar to the Scratch interface, children can bring the robot heads alive. We are hoping to offer after school Coding Clubs as well as a training course for teachers so that you can deliver a simple lesson plan to your students!
If you would be interested in a demonstration please let us know & we will come in and demo them for you!
As you will now know, the current BT Featurenet telephone system is coming to an end. As telephony services now tend to run over the computer network, it makes sense for us to branch out in to this area and we have partnered with Logical Telecoms who are a local company with an established record for great customer service.
If you would like to know more please don’t hesitate to contact us, or you can contact Shaun Noon at Logical direct quoting “Gareth Jones at Global Computing Solutions” on 03448 112224 or at Shaun.Noon@LogicalTelecom.co.uk.
