Both parents and teachers play a significant part in raising a child.
For a long time, both the groups that is the parents and teachers were largely disjoint and met occasionally for a PTA meeting and which would not be a long face-to-face interaction between the two groups. Thus, it did not help both the groups to exchange a semester full of information. Also, parent participation in schooling, parent-teacher conferences can be really stressful for teachers in a competitive society. But collaboration and interaction between the two groups is important not to say for the child’s development.
Much about it was thought and with the inroad of technology in education, a meaningful solution was designed by EdTech solution makers for education stakeholders to mitigate this issue. One such emerging tool in this line is Klassroom available in web and mobile application. It is reinventing the way teachers and parents communicate about children and their activities today. Although the Startup is a new entrant in the EdTech industry, yet it has well-managed to receive instant recognition because it could deliver a safer, instant and efficient platform to the two groups to discuss and communicate with each other.
