We have tried to inform parents in a technological way about our Student-Led Conferences that are happening next week. We sent parents in invitation via the iPad. Today, students used their their cell phones to inform parents about the event. See the instructions for students. View how we did it below.
Since our district allows BYOD, some students made it easier on themselves because they had their parent's cell number already in their device. Worked great!
Great to see a quick response from parents!
Some clarification by students needed to be made to parents. What's not shown is that her mother responded with a confirmation text that she totally understood what we were doing.
IMPORTANT: I made sure that students capitalized correctly and spelled correctly prior to sending the text.
