We’ve put the spotlight on a number of ways for students to excel and take advantage of resources through study tools, scholarship programs and college jobs. Those are all great ways for students to achieve their goals, but as a teacher wouldn’t it be nice to have new resources for reaching your students? ClassParrot is a communication service that connects teachers with students through simple, private text messages.
Now before you start questioning whether students and teachers should be texting, don’t worry they don’t. ClassParrot is a service that sends a text on behalf of teachers to students which means both student and teacher phone numbers are never shared. In addition, parents can choose to receive the same text messages so they can not only monitor the interaction, but keep up with their child’s schoolwork.
ClassParrot is a great tool for teachers to remind students of due dates, changes in assignments and exam notices. Teachers, students and parents can all exchange text messages back and forth without ever sharing their phone numbers. As an educator looking to give their students every chance to succeed, ClassParrot is one way to become a more successful teacher. Education institutions can welcome the use of ClassParrot because it removes any legal conflicts that would normally arise from contact outside the classroom.
The sign-up process is easy for both parties and as a free service ClassParrot provides 200 free text messages per month or for more robust classrooms, educators can opt for an upgraded account for as little as $9/month.
