School uses this for communication to families. Here is my review:
-The main page is confusing because it’s hard to distinguish between one post and another plus you can’t just click on a class or teacher to get only their posts. With multiple kids, the home page is chaos.
-Messaging teachers direct works but I’ve double profiles of teachers in the school.
-There is no explanation of monsters or how it actually helps your child other than supposedly it’s a point-reward system but confusing whether or not kids actually interact.
-App focuses on getting you to upgrade and pay $60 for features that I’m still not sure what they are - except if you don’t pay, it deletes all the pictures at the end of the year.
-Doesn’t look like there is a group chat feature where you could message a teacher and include another parent/guardian.
-No notification settings to let you choose between getting DMs vs general front page info.
-Also, it seems that it could be a failure of the school, but some teachers use DMs to communicate information and others use main posts. Again, it’s hard because you can’t just select on one teacher, but you have to go through all posts to find that nugget of information.
I really like the app because it gives you the ability to have communication directly with the teacher at all times while your child is in school. I told people it’s like Instagram for teachers and parents because you have a feed where you can stay current on what’s happening within the school and their classroom and you also have the ability to message the teacher and other staff members through text message. I think it’s awesome that this app exists to facilitate the connection of parents and teachers and get parents more involved in their kids daily school life
It is a requirement for me as a parent to use this app at my child’s school, and I understand that it’s super advanced and you can use it for at home purposes as well but seriously I have to say no to the plus version every time I log in and get 3-5 emails a day about all the great features I can buy. I wouldn’t be using it at all if I had a choice and the constant pan handling your worse than the kids begging at Christmas how many times do I have to say no? The options should allow you to opt out of the constant begging via email and messages
Honestly a great way to stay connected with the teacher and to check on upcoming assignments and homework assignments! Easy way to stay up to date with assignments that’s due at home so you want be lost with your child’s responsibilities as a student once they get home! I would definitely recommend this app for all parents who care for their child’s education. I’m a mother of 4 and I don’t have to go out my way to figure out what’s going on with my child. I can easily message the teacher and see her homework assignments!
And kk see so what I erupted in like a year or something I thought she had it to be delivered but it like it happened and it wasn’t so bad that it her not even show up and it say I got a text saying that her friend or me she just said yeah she don’t like her any morning and then he told him I didn’t know what her was like and I thought it her like she crazy but I was just asking if I could do that and I thought it her like she did but it ain’t like she hdrink would loves his yeha her qhhsbbebe new hehehdhdb
I feel like with each update it is getting harder and harder to view my child’s “points” given by her teacher. Before I could see how her whole week was going AND previous weeks. Then just the current week. Now I can barely see what happened TODAY. Everything you click asks for a subscription, I just want to see what her teacher awarded her!!!! Needs to be way more user friendly and streamlined for those with the free version.
I like the app and love that I can communicate in real time with my children’s teachers, however the notifications don’t push through to alert me that I’ve received a message and they don’t come up on my Lock Screen. I’ve double checked my settings and still no luck. Hopefully this recent update will fix that issue; otherwise I’ll need to enable persistent notification banners for the app as a work around.
That was the best incentive of all - for my son to be able to choose a unique feature to add to his icon - it made him excited to go to school so he could show his teacher and his class how he’d worked hard to earn a new feature to add to his icon (he managed to get it rainbow colours, and added a snorkel before the app changed). And now he’s lost all interest in the app. Please bring that feature back 🙏
The app is okay. If you want to participate in the at home points you have to pay for the subscription. If you want to save the photos you have to pay for the subscription. I kinda hate the app because of that. Like I’m sorry but I’m not paying a year subscription when next year his teacher will use another app. Pointless. We’ll use it but as soon as the school year is up it’ll be deleted!
To me this is no longer usable. Both of my kids schools use this app and I log in to see how they are doing and can’t because now I have to pay monthly. I do hope that changes. For us we use the school points to determine what extra privileges they get at the end of the week. So now I have to play the guessing game. Will be talking to the principal to what other options there are
