We believe strongly in the involvement of parents and the greater community in the process of a child’s education. We believe that involved communities result in higher academic and social outcomes, stronger values, and increased future success in life.

We also recognize that it’s not always easy for parents to stay involved with and engaged in their child’s education. That’s why we’re helping schools make their parents lives a little easier. We’re making it easy for schools to move their communications and interactions with members of their communities to Mobile. We’re enabling increased involvement in the Education Process through the technologies of today.

Integrating with Social Platforms requires a clearly thought out Social Communications Strategy that ties together all the online [and offline] channels – with the School’s underlying vision and plans. This should include:

  • co-ordinated brand image to ensure the quality and consistency of your school offering
  • robust and scalable website platform as the foundation to ‘connect’ and integrate to all other channels.
  • developing multi-channel, multi-platform, integrated communications. Website, Social Media, Apps (iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Android), Email and Print
  • activating [and maintaining] Social Media channels (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and LinkedIn) – and getting all your communities collaborating and sharing

Why is an app so important? Because Facebook is a platform that your audience is comfortable and familiar with.

What are some of the basic features available on a Facebook app?

  • Real-Time News & Events
  • Latest Photos & Videos
  • Live Twitter Feed
  • Links to Parent Portal
  • Connect with Parents
