smart communication for schools
“My science teacher uses a Google doc to post assignments. My math teacher posts in the learning management system. For English, I have to go to a different part of the learning management system. For Spanish, I have to constantly check email. For Track, we use an app.”
– High school freshman
“I’m checking email, Facebook, Instagram, and 4 different text groups just to figure out what my kids have going on every week. And I try to follow Twitter to see what’s happening at the school. It’s exhausting.”
– Parent of 4 public school
“Email is a big problem, it’s a passive channel and it’s out of sync with how we educate. And, too many students just don’t like email. Whatever we do to improve communication, it has to exist on the surface of a smart device and be very simple to use.”
– High school teacher
“We are simply managing too many channels; without a common platform for all stakeholders – students, teachers, parents and admins - communication becomes inefficient and frustrating and negatively impacts quality of education.”
- Middle school administrator
