Mobile App Development to Bridge Communication Gap in Schools
Posted: Dec 11, 2018
Both, parents and teachers want to work on a better future of the kids. However, both of them often have complaints with each other because of the lack of communication. This communication gap often creates problems and affects the growth of the children. The mobile app development is indeed a great tool that a school can integrate in the education system so this communication gap can be removed. The schools can choose to go for iOS and Android app development or choose any one platform to start with. The iOS and Android app development will let schools reach all parents with the updates, notifications and reminders. Let me share the top ways the mobile app development service can help schools to bridge the communication gap as well receive some brand benefits that can ultimately help the school.
1. Keep parents informed
Students often, intentionally or unintentionally, forget to inform their parents about various activities such as, upcoming exams, result, school picnic, etc. The parents often have complaints of not having any clear mechanism of getting this type of important information. The iOS and Android app development can assure to add a feature that with a single step the school can send a push notification to all the parents. Not only this, the mobile app for school can further send the reminder for the event based on the predefined schedule. This assures that the parents are well aware and reminded about all the event and activities happening in the school.
2. Give a quick view about the student to the parents
The parents only get to see the progress and attendance of the student when the monthly report card is sent to them. On the other hand, the school app development can add the feature of displaying all activities and information related to a pal to his / her parents in the mobile app. For example, the parents can check the daily attendance, the progress card, daily homework and many other information related to their pal so they can contribute to the growth of their child.
3. Provide an open channel of communication
With the iOS and Android app development, schools can add an instant messaging feature in the school mobile app. This helps in quick communication between parents and teachers without disturbing each other’s schedule. Both of them don’t need to wait until next parents meeting to discuss about something. Moreover, the parents don’t need to spend specific time to visit the schools or call a teacher to discuss about their concerns and queries. An app based communication can be faster and cheaper.
4. Keep logs for reference
Often school needs to answer issue of not being informed for so and so reasons, but with the mobile app, the schools always have the clear logs of all information passed to the parents. Also, the communication happened between schools and parents will be logged which can be used, if needed.
The schools have many benefits of introducing an app and must get a competitive edge by introducing the one.
