Bloomz Announces New Features at ISTE 2016

The teacher-parent communication app Bloomz announces a major award and the introduction of new features, including offering its basic schoolwide product for free.

The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) recently named Bloomz a Best Website for Teaching & Learning in the Social Networking and Communications category.

Bloomz also announced four updates that will be coming to its mobile and web app in time for the upcoming school year:

  • Student Timelines: As teachers share pictures of a students’ work, parents will now see a portfolio or timeline of their child’s creations, and watch them evolve over time.
  • Behavior Tracking: This feature helps teachers send home reports of how students behave in class.
  • Video support: Teachers will be able to record moments from the classroom and share them directly on Bloomz, where parents can watch them. Video support will be available starting in September.
  • Free for schools: Bloomz is also making its current basic schoolwide communication product (currently in beta until the new school year), free for schools moving forward.
