How I Use It
As a parent and educator, I highly recommend ClassTag for everyone! As a parent, this app allows teachers to communicate with parents/families and keep us in the know. At the end of the school day, I receive messages, via ClassTag, from my daughter's teacher/principal. You can send message to a group, the teacher only, or to a particular parent. I also like the app because it's easy to use. It is like a social media page. There is a stream which loads all announcements. I also enjoy that there is not a word count limit and attachments (pictures, lunch menus, flyers) can be included!
My overall take is that this product is a wonderful app to communicate with parents and students. I've used it on the parent side and educator side. This app allows students to learn how to upload their work and submit. As an educator, this app is a great way to remind students of homework assignment, reminders, even projects! The students were eager is use this app to show their parents their progress. Students were able to chat with one another using the app as well. When I monitored their usage, they asked questions to one another and also used it as a buddy system.
