Class Parrot

October 7th, 2011 by Brian Leave a reply »

I am really intrigued by Class Parrot, a service that lets you set up a text message subscriber list for your classroom.

As a teacher, you create classes on the main site and Class Parrot creates an opt-in code that parents and students can text to Class Parrot to sign up for messages.

The thing that really grabs my attention is that you use the site, not your phone, to send out messages. Your cell number is not used. Also, you don’t know student and parent cell numbers. The only numbers people need are the opt-in code and Class Parrot.

I’m going to look more into the service and see if it’s something that we can do to better communicate with our community.
