Along with 2 other blog posts, I created a discussion question entry this week in EdTech 537. Initially, I thought that creating a discussion question out of thin air was going to take me a little while, as my blog did not have a theme yet. However, with the news of my new job, I found my blog’s topic and created a discussion question that related.
What tool do you use to communicate with parents? How has this tool changed parent communication in your classroom (or as a parent)?
I introduced my discussion question with some information about my inspiration for the question. Parent involvement has always been important to me. My previous position at a rural low-economic school did not afford me the opportunity to communicate with parents as much as I would have liked. I was hung up on a lot by parents, no matter whether I was calling with good or bad news. 😦 That being said, this new opportunity will require a lot of parent communication, and I am interested in some proven practices that I can implement in my own classroom. Who better to ask than my fellow EdTech-ers?
