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