Teacher-parent communication is, ideally, a two-way street.

It is best thought of in terms of purpose:

Why do teachers and parents need to talk?

How can learning experiences be designed that require that interaction?

What systems can be put in place to respond when the communication–for whatever reason–doesn’t happen?

Apps and technology are secondary in terms of design, but once that curriculum–and those learning models–are in place to really benefit from close parent-teacher communication, then apps like the following can come in handy.

5 Adjustments To Make When Communicating With Parents Online

Communicating with parents online–through apps, social media, text, etc.–requires a few adjustments on your part, including:

1. Be careful use of tone–nothing that can be misinterpreted, especially snark and sarcasm.

2. Use clear and concise language.

3. Positive communication should be more frequent than other.

4. Consider more diverse function– a celebration of learning, communication of needs, and so on.

5. Know your audience. Watch what is shared when, and with whom. This is probably obvious enough, but don’t share student info X with parent Y.

Now a days the education of a child demand constant attention of both the teachers and the parents. So its very much important for parents to involved in their child’s academic works & activities to enhance their growth. And I guess these free to use mobile apps for schools like Teno app etc are a great way to do the same. These communication apps for teachers some way or the other helps parents to maintain a good relationship with their ward’s school and teachers.

For better result of the student & good feature parents should be give proper time to the student, but in the busy life they can not give proper time so many schools & education institutes are using free school mobile app & education ERP. like mylyapp give best solution this by parent teacher communication, fees management, exam result & timetable management erp even they are using GPS tracking system for school bus.
