Using Evisense with Parents
Evisense has been designed to strengthen the relationship between schools and parents by enabling more effective communication. At Evisense’s heart is a system devised to make recording and sharing evidence easy. A teacher or teaching assistant can quickly and easily record evidence and then share it with parents. Shortly after evidence has been recorded, parents can see what their child has just written, created, performed or participated in.
A full picture of your child’s achievements
Evisense gives parents an insight into their child’s education. You can see what your child is doing in school and then talk about their learning together at home. School is not just about academic success but also about building the whole child, giving them new opportunities to push themselves and providing new experiences which will inspire them. With Evisense you can evidence all of a child’s accomplishments, not just the academic ones. Head teacher’s awards, school council meetings, sports day activities and other events can all be recorded and shared.
Improving parent-school communication
Evisense can be used more widely as a communication tool between schools and parents. Newsletters can be distributed and stored within Evisense. Diary updates can also be sent out to a class or group within the school reminding them of future events. Teachers can message individual parents through Evisense. Schools can give parents the option to reply to these messages privately, keeping communication between themselves and the school only (not to be seen by other parents).
When evidence or a message is posted, the parent is notified directly through email and also within the app. This gives a much more effective and reliable messaging system, communicating directly to a parent’s in-box. As all messages go through the app/website, there are no text message charges or email charges, so communication through Evisense is FREE.
Safeguarding your child’s information
Storing photos and videos of children is a big responsibility and we take this very seriously. A number of us at B Squared are parents and we understand the concerns parents may have about a company storing their child’s images and information. Security and safeguarding are our highest priority and we have gone above and beyond the current legal requirements for protecting the data we store.
