Creating the Lines of Communication

Big picture

Welcome to Edlio

Rutherford County Schools has moved to an easy to use, consistent communication tool with Edlio webpages. Teachers can now update their webpage from any device. Parents and students have the option to subscribe to the teacher’s site and receive push notifications. In this session, teachers will create a page, update their profile, add assignments to their class calendar, build picture or video galleries, and more. Teachers will be amazed at how easy and fast this communication process can be.

Ten reasons for Teachers to maintain a website to reflect their classrooms

What do parents really want?

Through an informal poll one Instructional Coach assessed what parents might like to see on a teacher website. The top answer she received was “nightly homework assignments.” In addition, parents liked seeing long-term calendars, a way to provide feedback to the teacher, and educational links to use with their children at home. Parents also want the websites to be easily navigable and well-organized so that it’s easy to find what they need quickly. Nearly all the parents surveyed emphasized the importance of keeping teacher websites up to date. Indeed, this may be the number one thing that parents need, since all of the above features would be essentially useless if they were two weeks out of date.
