share assignments, announcements and awards
According to a report from the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL), “Programs and interventions that engage families in supporting their children’s learning at home are linked to higher student achievement.” Using the ClassFlow Moments app, teachers can bring parents and guardians into the learning process by sharing classroom content directly from ClassFlow – the hub where they direct classroom activities, deliver lessons, launch quizzes and interactive polls, and send out homework assignments.
Using their ClassFlow account and the free ClassFlow Moments app, teachers can send parents:
- Class assignments: Communicate assignments and their due dates so parents can work with their student to encourage timely and quality completion.
- Class activities and announcements: Remind parents to send in permission slips for a field trip, of a school celebration taking place this week, and that students have a test on Friday – all from the same place where teachers manage lessons and class content.
- Student success and awards: Notify parents of any badges given to students during class for showing initiative, being a team player, solving problems, and more.
- Messages: Chat with parents securely from the app. Teachers can chat one-on-one with an individual parent, or start a group chat to reach all parents.
“It’s so important to invite parents and guardians into the learning process, but it can be challenging when I’m already pressed for time as a special rotations teacher focused on STEAM learning and technology,” said Jaime Vandergrift, Instructional Technology Specialist and ClassFlow Ambassador. “ClassFlow Moments makes it easy to keep parents informed about what's happening in my classroom and our school. There are quick and simple instructions for parents on how to get and use the app. It’s also intuitive for me as a teacher, since the ClassFlow lesson software I’m already using can directly share information with parents through the app. An open line of communication between the teacher and the parent is essential in shaping a student’s learning journey.”
For parents and guardians, the ClassFlow Moments app is available on the Google Playä Store and on the App Store for iPhone®.
ClassFlow simplifies the way teachers discover, create and deliver interactive learning. ClassFlow is trusted by over 50,000 schools and institutions in 154 countries worldwide.
