The important thing a student needs in his educational life is guidance. A teacher helps students learn in the classroom and a parent assists him in getting the homework done. Success of a student will surely depend on these three factors:
the way he/she works, the way the teacher produces lessons and the way the parents assist him/her at home.
So many researches and surveys prove that children do better in school when they receive guidance from both teachers and parents. A teacher may not have time to asses each and every student but a parent can estimate the performance of his son/daughter. Many educational institutions conduct many events and conferences to welcome parents; and the interactions between parents and teachers result in personalized instructions for students. In 21st century, many parents are failing to attend such events due to their busy professional life. But technology helps such parents to interact with teachers from home as well as their work place. In this article, we are giving you the information about the tools that connect teachers, students and parents.
