ICTs can be used as a method of communicating with and informing parents. Amy’s blog post highlights that there are many ways ICTs can be used within schools to communicate with parents. I found it incredibly interesting when she identified that tuckshop orders can be placed online and I also can see the benefits of this. I would like to share with you the News Segment that Amy provided on her blog post.
In addition to these methods of using ICTs to inform parents I would also like to bring to your attention the use of edStudio. edStudio provides students and parents with an interactive online space where teachers can place learning resources, homework tasks, important dates and the content for each week of learning. The edStudio allows teachers to effectively inform parents of what is happening in the classroom and what is required of their children. Click here for more information about edStudio.
