For many decades, school systems have used a traditional way of establishing and maintaining communication between teachers and parents. The way that has been used almost exclusively is the physical face-to-face meeting between the teacher and parent. While this way of communicating between teachers and parents has many benefits, there have been many changes in the way schools operate both in the classroom and at the administrative level.
One of the biggest changes has been the use of technology. With the vast array of technology innovations that have been introduced over the past few decades, technology has become an integral part of the classroom and school administration. The use of technology has transformed the way education is introduced and delivered in classrooms. Also, the way school systems utilize technology has changed the way education is managed on the administrative level.
Although a lot of progress has been made regarding technology use in the classroom and in school systems, there are still various areas where technology has not been utilized or utilized sparingly. One of these areas concerns the communication between teachers and parents. Most school systems still depend on the traditional teacher and parent conference.
There is nothing wrong with a physical meeting between teachers and parents to discuss the progress of students in the classroom or to discuss aspects of the school system. However, the use of technology would be able to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of teacher and parent communication.
A technology company that is helping to provide technology based solutions for teacher and parent communication is ClassDojo. The company has an app that is utilized in thousands of schools across the country that is helping teachers in the classroom along with school administrators.
The app is used by many school systems to bring classroom tasks and administrative tasks to the digital age. With the app developed by ClassDojo, teachers are able to place many classroom related tasks on the app network platform that is accessible throughout the school. One of the tasks that the app helps with is communication between teachers and parents.
