As a teacher, wouldn’t it be great to communicate often with parents of your students and also track and manage communication with parents? I teach a small special ed class and am able to do that, but I can imagine what a difficult time teachers of large classes and multiple classes have keeping track of who they called and who needs to be called.
Parent engagement is very important in the success of students and helps motivate students which raises their grades. Because of this, communication with parents is a high priority for teachers. However, with teachers’ heavy work loads it’s hard to accomplish sometimes. Having a Dash app available on iPhones would allow teachers to be organized (very important for teachers), and teachers could create a daily speed dial to keep up with families. This would make positive calls home to parents possible with only the click of a button and would allow for more frequent calls to parents.
Dash is working on an app, currently for the iPhone and later for Android, that will allow teachers to actually track and manage communication with parents easily. The app has already raised $3,000 on StartSomeGood and hopes to raise an additional $7,000 to make the product even better. Go to Launch Dash to learn more. This could ultimately revolutionize the future of parent-teacher communications.
