Webinar - One Tool For All Your Parent Communication: How Bloomz Can Save Teachers Time and Effort
Presenter: Horatio Ochoa, Head of Marketing, Bloomz
Every day we see hundreds of missed connections between teachers and parents. Between reminders, meetings, event signups, all flying around in hard copy, digital and verbal formats, teachers and parents can’t keep up. On the other hand, social networks and mobile phones have redefined how we connect. Facebook for friendships, LinkedIn for careers; it seems as if there was a social network for every aspect of life. Almost.
Bloomz is a new mobile and web app that helps teachers save a great deal of time in their communication with parents, by providing a powerful set of tools to connect, coordinate and communicate with parents, all in one beautifully designed app that is easy (and free) for teachers to use. From messaging, to picture sharing, event and volunteer signups, Bloomz provides the right tools to increase parental engagement and satisfaction in your school and classroom. Join this webinar to learn more about this app and how it works.
