Overview of Lernio
Lernio is a free app for schools to start parent-teacher communication on a secured network. The only requirement after the installation of the App is a one-time (first time) authorization through OTP on the mobile phone number, quite similar to the process which modern-day apps follow.
Needless to say, teachers save a great deal of time with Lernio in communicating with parents on their child’s activities at school. Teachers can simply pull out their phones and click pictures and videos, and post them in real-time using the Lernio app. The app will send notifications to only those parents whose kids are tagged in the post. This ensures easy and quick sharing between parents and teachers while maintaining safety and privacy.
This user-friendly app’s Facebook like timeline view makes it easier to post and consume relevant updates. The familiarity of the interface makes sharing posts and commenting all the easier for both, the teacher and the parent.
