International School Apps
Handling communications as an international school can be complicated, especially with the potential for parents and other family members to be in completely different areas of the world. Parental engagement is essential in all forms and levels of education, so the implementation of a school app can help to keep these parents involved through a one-stop-shop of information about events, news and teaching.
● Cutting the cost: Budgets are always a key concern for schools, so having an efficient and affordable way of communicating with parents is essential. Overseas communication can be especially expensive, but the use of a school app means that family members, no matter where they are, can be reached directly and immediately.
● Looking to the future: Having a dedicated school app puts you at the forefront of technology use in education, it is individualised to your students and parents and streamlines the time spent by both teachers and parents in sending and reviewing information and news. In terms of parental engagement, an app provides access to all the latest stories and photographs, meaning that nothing is ever missed in the child’s education.
● Improved communications: Notifications can be sent in real-time, directly to parents’ devices, meaning that they are always in the loop about what’s happening with their child’s education. A school app is a sure-fire way to boost parental engagement and communication with hard-to-reach family members.
