Enhancing Parent Teacher Communication Using Technology
BookMeey – is a free calendar booking platform that integrates with your calendar so you are never double booked – a miracle when teaching, and allows you to save time when booking in your parent-teacher appointments, or meetings with colleagues.
ClassTag – enables parents to sign up via the app to volunteer or help with classroom activities. ClassTag also allows teachers to create newsletters and schedule parent-teacher conferences. While many teachers struggle to build relationships with parents for whom English is not the primary language, ClassTag offers the ability to send messages to parents in their preferred language and have their responses translated back into English.
Remind – is a communication for the school, home, and everywhere in between. Remind allows teachers to reach students and parents where they are.
Class Dojo – is an online communication platform for teachers. 95% of U.S. schools use Class Dojo to engage kids and connect with families! It’s free for teachers, forever. Class Dojo enables teachers to instantly share photos, videos, and announcements on Class Story, or privately message with any parent.
