Hi All, I'm a Grade 2 homeroom teacher who, for years, has communicated classroom activities via a detailed monthly newsletter. In recent years, of course, I've gone green and begun e-mailing it out. However, I'm thinking it's time to start communicating online somehow. Twitter won't work as far as being spontaneous, because anything we send home requires admin. review and, thus, a 24-hour advanced notice for said review to take place. (Plus, I'm not sure how many parents actually pay attention to Twitter...) What online platform(s) do you use to communicate with parents about what is going on in the classroom? I'm thinking of some way to share about curriculum, special events and needs, maybe some photos and/or video, etc. But I don't want something exceedingly difficult or time-consuming (in addition to being a classroom teacher, I'm also a parent to a young child!) Thanks for any suggestions you can share. Chris
