How I Use It
I use Bloomz as a communication tool with the parents in my classroom. Our Google classroom calendar is linked to Bloomz in order to share current events in class. I was able to schedule all parent conferences within minutes utilizing the Bloomz Conference Scheduling feature. I am able to private message with parents as well as send whole class message blasts as well as share photos and videos of our class.
My Take
This tool has been an amazing life save for me. I'm able to communicate with parents easily as well as indicate which times I am available and set "off hours." Communication and planning with parents has never been easier. I plan to look further into the behavior tracking and portfolio features so I can implement them in my next school year. I liked how I could learn a few features at a time and gradually implement new ones as I feel needed.
