Video: Power Up Parent Communication

Parent/teacher communication
is not 1960s rocket science. 
Common Sense Media just released the following video with three great tips for improving parent communication. I try to notify parents every Monday through email, but sometimes wonder how effective my communication is.

I've toyed with Remind and was reintroduced to the app at the ICE Conference last week. I am also dusting off my class Google sites and adding announcements to keep everyone informed.

After watching the video, I plan to explore ways of combining the Google site feed with a push service such as Remind. This way information can be created and archived in a central location but parents and students will still receive mobile notification.
