How Do I Communicate With Students?

As a teacher, you have a variety of ways to communicate with students. You can communicate one-on-one, in small groups, or share announcements with the whole class.

Post Announcements in Your Classroom

The first way to communicate is by posting an announcement for the class from the Announcements tab. You can record videos, attach documents and post general announcements for your whole classroom.

Students can comment or add an emoji reaction on your Announcement posts, allowing for teacher-student engagement with the whole class.

You can also communicate to the class from the main classroom page by clicking on the chat icon at the bottom of the page.

Chat One-on-One with a Student

To chat one-on-one, click on their name on your Classroom landing page. At the bottom of the slide out menu, you will see the option to communicate with the student.

Students will have the same option to communicate with their teacher. They can post videos and attach documents all in one place.

Note: Students do not have the ability to chat with each other one-on-one.

Tip: You can tell when a student is online by the green check on their student tile.

Set Up Small Groups in Your Kiddom Classroom

Kiddom allows you to set up small groups so students can communicate with each other. To do so, click on the add people icon at the top right and the select Add Groups. From there, select which students you want to join the group.

This option is great for small group discussions, as well as for teachers using the discourse-driven Open Up Resources curriculum in Kiddom. Students can chat with each other, share ideas, and engage in productive discourse. Click here to learn more about Groups in Kiddom.

Happy teaching and learning!
