What methods of parent/teacher communication do you use?
At the beginning of last year, I tried to use Twitter in order to reach parents through a trending site. I believe its safe to say, it didn't "catch on". I began tweeting myself, and then I slowly stopped when I noticed there was no one there. (Kinda like when you realize no one is following you.. lol.. yea)
The purpose of using Twitter, was to reach the families that may not have a computer, however; they may have a smartphone. A way to update parents in 50 characters or less and give them a "PEEK" into our classroom because there was not a lot of parents in our building seeing us learn. It was a modern way to "highlight" good things happening.
I am now thinking of another way to communicate better with parents this year. While I am moving to another campus, this may be a chance to try Twitter again, however I would LOVE to know what others do to REACH parents and SHARE what we do.
