Back to school – We are in that time of year again where children are excited about their new backpacks, school uniforms, new shoes, new books, etc and the school management is drilling exercises for the new academic year yet to start in a very short period. Amidst all these, are the parents with their own questions for the school management to answer and are looking for a better and enhanced way of communication all around the year. The primary question every parent always had and still has towards the school management is how effective the communication would be from the school? Considering the current trends in technology, if I or anyone had to answer that question, I or he would simply say a perfect school app; as it creates a harmonious school to parent communication.
However, when asked the schools about what could be the best way to communicate to parents about information, many schools were in the process of digging ways to find one. Despite their serious efforts over the past few years, couldn’t enhance the school-to-home communication. Parents, on the other hand, want to know about their child’s daily activities in the class, their daily progress, behavioral aspects, what’s happening in the class, etc., on a regular basis. They want the information to be shared consistently. In the case of an emergency, parents want the information sharing to be instant and without any delay.
Over the past few years, communicating information to parents and contacting parents and pupil on a regular basis was a daunting task until there was a wide usage of mobile phones. A mobile device such as a smartphone has revolutionized the way we communicate. In a recent study of the mobile usage, it was estimated that 4 out of 5 use mobile phones and on an average have downloaded up to 10 apps on their smart devices. With the augmented usage of mobile phones, schools are now thinking of having or developing a mobile app for an uninterrupted communication.
Walking in the shoes of the schools and parents, MyClassboard developed a perfect school app to connect schools to homes and keep the families in fellowship with the school management. The MyClassboard school app has a host of benefits for teachers, students, parents, administrator, accountant, transport in charge, principal and director. The best feature this perfect school app comes with is the “Push Notifications” – to send important information to students, parents and faculty. This is an easy-to-use push notification feature that has a central notification center with proper labels to understand from which product the notification was pushed.
The existing mobile application from MyClassboard empowers schools to easily communicate with parents while saving the significant time and effort of teachers and parents. The application has been customized to save time, money and also fasten the process of sending information. Moving with the tide in this technological era, MyClassboard has upgraded its existing application with new look and feel. The newly upgraded application is a suite of integrated features which eliminates paperwork, helps in building and sustaining a harmonious relationship with parents, enhances financial benefits and furthermore helps parents to be in constant touch with the school management and teachers thereby helping them to know what’s happening in the school.
