#TCEA16 Favorite Finds

Guest Post by Kim Villarreal, Rockenbaugh Elementary School Science Lab Teacher

Hi, everyone — I’m excited to share a classroom communication and scheduling app called Bloomz

As a classroom teacher, I have been a long-time fan of Remind: Safe Classroom Communication (formerly Remind 101) for its simple way of communicating with parents. Once your parents or students join the Remind class, you can send one way announcements, photos, audio, and/or video via text anytime.  The latest version also allows for two way communication both through instant message with up to ten parents/students or by opting to allow replies to announcements.  Your personal contact information remains private since all communication is done through the app.  

Sign Up Genius has been long been my favorite way to schedule parent/teacher conferences or to organize volunteers.

Bloomz is the perfect combination of the best of both of these apps.  

The ease of communication plus the efficiency of scheduling are what makes Bloomz different.  I can see this app saving teachers a great deal of time and headache by streamlining their communication and scheduling needs. 

Here is a short video to give you a glimpse of what Bloomz offers:


Happy Bloomzing!
