I am making a plan for parent communication for this coming year. For the past two years, my teammates and I have used the Bloomz app. I liked it, despite an occasional glitch here and there. I had some parents tell me that they loved it and some that didn't like it so much. Now I'm moving to a building where most teachers use Class Dojo, not Bloomz. I can still use Bloomz, if I want, but I'm wondering if I should just switch over to Class Dojo. I don't and won't use the behavior component on either app. I primarily use it for posting updates and the calendar feature (which Dojo doesn't have, unfortunately) to communicate with parents, although I am considering trying out the student portfolio feature this year. The majority of the parents are familiar with Dojo already because the kindergarten teachers used it, but the third/fourth teachers use Bloomz. I'm teaching first/second, so I get to decide if I'll use what they know or prepare them for what they'll use when they move up (assuming that the third/fourth teachers don't make a change by then). I can see downsides to both, and I'm struggling to make a decision. Any thoughts or advice?
