#31 of the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017 According to Education Experts –
31. Bloomz – One app for all your parent communications
As nominated by Vicki Davis of Cool Cat Teacher.
Bloomz is a 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.
Every day there are hundreds of missed connections between teachers and parents. Between reminders, meetings, sign ups, events flying around in hard copy, digital and verbal formats, parents can’t keep up. 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’ vision is to create a thriving community of engaged parents making better parenting decisions, where school comes first. Because no other influences are more important in the upbringing of a child, than those from their parents and teachers.
“Bloomz is my parent connection tool. It is so awesome that grandparents and students are now wanting to join. The biggest advantage is that it’s available as either an app or email and parents can set it up in the way they like best. Parents love it!”– Vicki Davis
