Tech Tip for Busy Teachers! Have you discovered Bloomz yet?

11 September 2015 / 1 comment
Hello all!  It is me!  Hilary from Primary Planet (blog formerly known as Second Grade is Out of This World!)  Today I want to share with you a WONDERFUL new app that I discovered this summer.  This app has EVERYTHING that you need to communicate with parents.  It is called Bloomz.
With this app (for both Apple and Android) you can send messages, pictures, calendar dates, coordinate volunteers and parent conferences securely all in one place!
I am seriously digging this!
You can also use it online.
If parents decide not to download the app, they will still get all of the notifications in the e-mail that they registered with!
There are a few things that I think could be improved:
I wish it were easier to find the notifications.  I get a notification that someone posted or responded to a message or post and I have to hunt it down.
I am not fond of the calendar layout.  Any dates you put in the calendar show up in the feed, they don't have their own separate area.  They are easy to get lost in the shuffle.
I have not used the scheduling features yet, but they look easy easy to use!
I am loving this app!  It is a whole new way to communicate with parents all in one place!
Check it out, you won't be sorry!
I am not affiliated with Bloomz in any way, I just LOVE this app!
