πŸ’¬ Kathleen Morris on Communication

Replied to

I have experienced a combination of LMS (Sentral, Compass, Synergetic) and social media (Facebook pages). I have discussed the use of Slides for newsletters in the past. I also think that there is scope for storing ‘newsletters’ in Google Drive to embed elsewhere.

Personally, I think that it is a balance between where parents are and where you want them to be. I think a lot of people baulk at something like Edublogs because it is another space to log into, however I have significant concerns about sending people to places like Facebook and other such sites because of the issues with algorithms and advertising.

What annoys me most though about most forms of notifications is that they often send out a link to the information with just enough detail to get you to click, but not enough to be content.

  1. Very good points, Aaron! Thanks for sharing. I like this, β€œI think that it is a balance between where parents are and where you want them to be.” I think a big issue is consistency. It’s needed to β€œtrain” parents to use the form of communication you’re using?

  2. And if you’re using something that they are already trained in, Ie emails… Then the email may lost in the many everyone receives each day. Having something separate works best. In my experience, parents respond to emails from the T but get many school emails.
