    Co-Teaching with Bloomz

    by Jude Miqueli, on Sep 13, 2017 10:00:54 AM

    Co-teaching comes in many forms such as team teaching, one teach one support, or parallel teaching. Co-teachers can set up a Bloomz page so that both teachers communicate with parents from one account. To start, visit the Bloomz support center to invite your co-teacher to your class. Just follow these quick and simple steps:

    1. Tap on All Groups at the top left corner
    2. The left navigation tray opens up
    3. Click on Invite to Group 
    4. Click on the Name of the Class in the Invite to Which Group? screen
    5. Click the Teacher role in For Which Role? screen
    6. Select one of the three invite options in How to Invite? screen
    7. Send the Invite.

    Note: Once the Co-teacher joins your class on Bloomz, they will have the same privileges in the class as you do.

    Teachers may have an assistant but the two work together in a co-teaching model. Bloomz users can always edit the roles of their co-teachers for clarity among parents.

    If you and your co-teacher would like to appear as one teacher so that all communication is done with the both of you, post to the newsfeed using a classroom signature. Click "Create Post", click on the teacher's name, and then choose a signature. For example, my class is called the Horned Owls. I can post as myself or the Horned Owls. This comes in handy if I have a student teacher or assistant making posts using my Bloomz account.

    Co-teaching with Bloomz accelerates classroom communication. If one teacher is busy giving a lesson the co-teacher can take photos and upload them to Bloomz. When multiple teachers access a Bloomz classroom page there are diverse pictures, posts covering a multitude of classroom aspects, and all parent messages are answered in a timely manner.
