In India, school and administrators are using mobile apps to engage students, faculty, parents and community in getting an A+ in leveraging the power of mobile. Mobile apps aren’t used for shopping and gaming, but also provide utility and connect people about information that matters in daily lives. Apps can integrate with existing student information systems like attendance records, grades, teacher’s comments and real-time progress reports. Apps are also used for distance online education and make easy to submit assignments on time.
Schools use these apps to push notifications to parents in case of an emergency announcement and parents can use these apps to keep track of important dates and school events. At the high school level, the mobile app makes easy to contact teachers for questions or concerns to assist prospective and current students alike. The accessibility of smartphones is leading the parents to get in touch with the school in a matter of a few minutes.
