How I Use It
I use this app many different ways. I use the student timelines with my Kindergarten students. They upload things they are proud of and record their voices for their parents to hear what they are up to at school. I love communicating with my parents through Bloomz. It's quick and easy. It translates for them if needed - that is awesome! I use it to schedule parent teacher conferences. No going back and forth and it automatically reminds them about the conference.
As a teacher of kids who don't read, I can't say I use it specifically as a teaching tool. However, it most definitely has influenced all the other areas in my classroom.
