We have many family members in education and they've often griped about the difficulty connecting with parents. Parent/teacher meetings are not long enough, children's learning is not supported at home, homework and forms get lost and parents are not up to date on what is going on. There's a big gap between parents and teachers, and it needs to be fixed.
“When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.” That’s the conclusion of A New Wave of Evidence, a report from Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (2002).
That's right, we've known this since at least 2002. And not much has changed.
The current solutions for teachers focus heavily on school administration, cost thousands of dollars, and have poor adoption.
Continuous Classroom changes that:
- Since we use Force.com communities, teachers can sign up directly without waiting for administrators to go through a complicated setup process
- Teachers and parents can access information easily through our mobile apps
- The app is simple to use and focuses on sharing information between parents and teachers
