This weeks technology share is an app as well as a website. Check out Bloomz. It is available for iOS and Android. With Bloomz, you can connect with parents, sharing messages and/or pictures and videos. Morer useful features of Bloomz include setup conferences, manage and coordinate calendars, messaging, chat, student portfolios and behavior tracking. This app really is a dream for teachers and parents alike. The best part is that if you already know how to use Facebook, then it is a breeze to use. I find parents love it as much as teachers do. Bloomz also has privacy and security measures. This is quite possibly the best and most useful app you will find this year. Check it out.
