Today, the parent communication app Bloomz announced the addition of student user accounts. Starting in August, teachers can invite students to sign up for a free Bloomz account and receive communication from their teachers and school administrators through the app.
With Bloomz, teachers and school administrators will be able to share important class-related content and learning resources with students. For example, teachers can share assignment updates, test reminders, and other class files with students through the app—at the same time as they send daily updates, photos, and videos to parents. Sharing will be streamlined for educators, as they will be able to share to both parents and/or students, to the whole school, or a specific classroom with one simple post.
Bloomz is also partnering with Clever to participate in its recently announced Library, a way for teachers to discover and sign up for instructional technology. As part of this program, teachers will be able to discover the communication app through the portal, then use their Clever credentials to sign up for a free account and import their classrooms and students with one click.
At the ISTE conference on June 25–27, Bloomz will be demonstrating its Clever integration and providing more details in booth #685.
