The School Communicator application is the new way that parents can stay in touch with what is happening in their children’s school at their fingertips. The application is easy to use you can download it on your computer/tablet/smartphone too. You only get the news relevant you and your child by personalizing it.
1. You visit www.school-communicator.com/downloads schools will appear and choose your child’s school.
2. Choose the device of your choice Windows, Android, Mac or Blackberry then install on your desktop or tablet even smart phone. On the Android tablet it is just under 5MB and so the School Communicator is a light application.
3. A Notice board will appear in your child’s school news.
5. You have the choice to personalize what you see by choosing your Child’s grade and you can choose which categories/channels you want to subscribe to, to avoid clutter.
On the School Communicator there are 6 menu bars and they are as follows News, Calender, Multimedia, Resourses, Homework and Contacts.These categories/channels have information like the Term assessment planners, Excursions reminders, extra-mural program times and days, Exam timetables, daily homework, school events updates for all the grades and contact details for the school.
Any information you share with the School Communicator is absolutely private and is protected by Thawte. The school communicator will automatically update daily so you may want to change your firewall settings to allow it to run and the data usage varies from the updates and the type of content loaded but expect to use typically from 30Mb per month.
I think the School Communicator is an absolutely amazing idea and the schools are keeping up with technology I mean we spend most of our time on our tablets and smartphones at work and home. The schools have found a way to send parents’ messages in other ways than a newsletter. There are about 1757 schools using the d6 School Communicator, I am happy that my child’s school is one of them.
