What is Kabbalah and why it is so popular

Kabbalah is a popular way of life yet to many people it remains a mystery. Kabbalah was established in 1922 by Rav Yeshuda Ashlag. It was established to instill knowledge on people, to endow them with wisdom, and to help them acquire the tools they need to make their lives better and the lives of other people. Rav is the spiritual leader of Kabbalah.

They established a center in Los Angeles that serves as the world headquarter for the organization. The organization has more than 50 offices that are spread out across the world. The offices serve as centers of teachings.

With about 500 to 1000 employees, the organization serves more than 5000 students weekly. Kabbalah employs international staff that serves all ethnic groups. It is described as a way of life rather than a religion.

The organization also delivers its teachings through the use of DVDs, literature and other forms of communication. The teachings that are delivered at the Kabbalah Center are based on the principles of Zohar which is its foundation.

Kabbalah popularity has risen due to several factors. Their tolerance to other religions and support to the community has seen it supported by top celebrities and leaders. Kabbalah helps people understand the meaning of life and the existence of people. It helps people understand why things happen the way they happen in life and people’s behavior in life.

Kabbalah teachings are against ego; ego revolves around the small world in the inside the person. If people follow the torching and lower their ego, they open up themselves to new things and new knowledge that world has to offer.

Humanity through their ignorance has led to the world problems that we are experiencing, people thinking only for themselves have created a huge gap between them and the rest of the world. In turn, everyone focuses on themselves hence creating an individualist spirit.

Kabbalah teachings are so complex and take a lot of time to understand fully. As a result, in the traditional Jewish communities, the deep teachings are only offered to men who are over 40 years old. By following the teachings of Kabbalah, humanity can end modern-day problems such as depression, drug abuse, and terrorism.

 

ClassDojo To Revolutionize The Education Environment Even Further

 

ClassDojo has already completely changed the learning experience for children in todays day and age thanks to their brilliant idea of creating an application that connect parents, teachers and students. Children of today have their own cellphone at a very early age as this is how to stay connected in todays society. Therefore it was a natural progression for the cellphone or smart device to be incorporated into the learning experience. ClassDojo and its co-founder Liam Don have taken this one step further and come up with an improvement of the ClassDojo application called Student Stories.

Student Stories is an addition that allows students to share more videos and images from their class room learning experience. By simply recording themselves completing tasks or creating new things students can upload stories which can be immediately shared with parents. QR codes are scanned without the need of login information or a personalized device. Teachers can then ensure the stories are ready to be sent on home and can also post additional material if they see fit. The children can also tag their friends in their media as well as post comments like in existing social media platforms. ClassDojo is however more personalized and only directed at parents and those involved in the child’s learning experience.

Liam Don, ClassDojo’s co-founder said that the idea came from talking to parents and teachers on improvements that would like to be seen within the application. This was the same way they first came up with the idea of creating an educational application. Educational applications are very popular however non have revolutionized the learning experience quit like ClassDojo. More than two thirds of the United States school systems are already using the application and more will follow soon.

Creating a positive classroom culture was the number one focus of the creators of ClassDojo and is something they have achieved through the platform. The new addition of Student Stories will give students additional ownership over their work as well as provide parents with shared moments they might have never experienced otherwise.

The ClassDojo application can be loaded to most smartphones and tablets making it a very versatile application. It is free of charge for teachers willing to incorporate it in their teaching platform. If further features are required, a small fee is necessary. ClassDojo is creating a change.
