Benefits of Using a Classroom Communication App

There are many benefits to using a classroom communication app, such as Class Dojo. Not only is it more convenient, but it can save quite a bit of time. Besides these things, there are a few other benefits as well. We’re going to look at some of these next.

Important Events

The first thing that these types of apps can be used for are important events. Parents will be able to be sent information about what the event is, the location, the time, and other important information. This can help reduce the resources and time it takes to notify all the parents of the school. In addition, they can ask questions that can be answered almost immediately, and other parents can see those answers.

Assignment Communications

Another benefit is being able to have better assignment communication. This is a huge benefit for those students that don’t always bring home assignments or project information. By using this app, the teacher can let the parent know about the subject of the assignment and/or project, as well as know the due date. They can also let them know what’s expected of the student and possibly what percentage of the overall grade the project or assignment is. This could increase the chances that the student will take the time to complete it well instead of just rushing and throwing something together last minute.

Important Changes

Sometimes things happen. It’s a part of life and it’s inevitable. Depending on what the changes are and how serious they are, the school might not have the time to send out paper notices or send something home with the students. Having an app like this means that the school can send out the changes immediately. This can also help ensure that all parents are on the same page and aren’t kept out of the loop.

Student Updates

These apps can also be used for student updates. A lot of times, the only time a parent can get an update is at a parent teacher conference or if they call or email the teacher. These types of apps make it easier for the teacher to give regular updates on the students. They will also be able to give updates and information on a more personal and in-depth basis because they don’t have 20 something kids to get through in a matter of hours.

Share Videos and Pictures

This is great for those parents that have students in lower grades. Teachers will be able to take videos and pictures of their students and post it to the class page on the app. This lets every parent be able to see their child in action. Not only is it fun, but you’ll get to see what a day at school is like for your child.

As you can see, there are some pretty great benefits to using a classroom communication app. You can stay connected without having to waste a bunch of time or do a bunch of extra steps!
