In one of the sessions I attended on our PA day October 25, I was surprised by the number of people who are not using Twitter as a means of communicating with our parents. Moreover, I was even more disappointed with the number of educator who are not using a form of electronic software to communicate to their parent’s altogether.
We live in age where we rely on technology to communicate the learning of our students and even our own learning. Twitter has been around for 10 years and wonder why educators have not jump on board to utilize its features. My staff have really worked hard at capturing student learning and communicate their documentation through video newsletters. They all use various forms of applications such as: Remind, Blogs, e-mail lists, and Seesaw. All of the applications answer what parents are wondering, “What is my child learning?” http://markrenaud2.blogspot.ca/p/newsletters.html
If you are not using technology to communicate to your parents, what are you using?
