organization will collaborate to improve school communication
AZTEA will promote Bloomz to its members throughout the 2017–2018 school year as the parent-teacher communication app of choice. Members who adopt Bloomz will have the opportunity to share their experiences with the app at the AZTEA conference in the fall.
“AZTEA and Bloomz share a commitment to improve instruction through the opportunities provided by well-positioned educational technology,” said Cathy Poplin, Executive Director of AZTEA. “By connecting parents to teachers, and connecting teachers to essential organizations and resources, we are creating a community in which all parties are equipped to empower learners with the skills they will need for living and working in the 21st century.”
Bloomz is the free mobile and web app that connects educators with parents in a secure, social, private environment. In Bloomz, parents feel more connected than they ever have to their children’s world, and teachers have more time than ever before, because they have everything they need in one simple-to-use tool.
