(Seattle, WA) June 25, 2018 — Today, the award-winning parent communication app Bloomz took a major step to become the all-in-one solution for schools and districts communication needs by announcing 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. Students will then have the experience that Bloomz has offered to parents and teachers in its rapidly growing user base in over 25,000 schools.
With Bloomz, teachers and school administrators will be able to share with students important class-related content and learning resources. For example, teachers can share assignment updates, test reminders and other class files with students through the app, along with daily updates, photos, and videos with 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.
“While Bloomz is expanding and seeing demand in higher grades, now is the perfect time for students to take more ownership of their learning and become more involved in the communication,” said Chaks Appalabattula, CEO of Bloomz. “Parents and district leaders made it clear in their feedback that they wanted their middle and high school students to be a part of the app, and we listened.”
As part of its promise to save time for teachers and students, 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 and use their Clever credentials to sign up for a free account and import their classrooms and students in their classrooms with one click.
Bloomz continues to enhance and update its experience with the addition of Clever integration, making it easier for teachers to juggle the countless apps, and even connect Bloomz with their LMS or SIS to complement their tool set. Communication remains a key factor in a student’s development and with its focus on strengthening teacher-parent and now student-teacher communication, Bloomz continues in its path to build more connected and engaged school communities.
At the ISTE conference on June 25th–27th, Bloomz will be demonstrating their Clever integration and providing more details in booth #685.
