First of all, welcome to ClassTag! We are excited to help you build a thriving community in your class and make this the year you can turn parents into partners!
To help you get started, we’ve created a checklist for you that will help you get started a Teacher on ClassTag.
SIGN-UP AND CREATE YOUR CLASS
Signing up on ClassTag and creating your class is very easy. Please follow these steps:
- Go to ClassTag’s website and click on the “Sign Up” button on the upper right side.
- Fill out the page with your information, choose your preferred language, create a password and then click on the “Sign Up” button.
3. Choose “I’m a Teacher”.
4. Enter the details of your class and click “Create Classroom”.
That’s it! You’ve created your account and added your class on ClassTag. Don’t forget to click on the link in the email verification that we’ve sent to confirm your email.
Now, let’s start adding your students’ names and parents’ information.
ADD STUDENTS’ NAMES AND PARENTS’ INFORMATION
These steps require adding your students and their parents’ info on ClassTag. As a Teacher, you can invite the parents to join your class on ClassTag using either their email address or mobile number. After you add the students’ names and parents’ email addresses or mobile numbers, the system is going to send an email or SMS to the parents.
I don’t have the parents’ information yet. Is this really needed? → Not necessarily! You can still invite the parents to sign up on ClassTag even if you don’t have their info with you. You can send them the flyers with the code that they can use to join ClassTag.
Further details and step-by-step instructions about adding the students and parents’ information can be found here.
COMMUNICATING WITH PARENTS
There are tons of things that you can do on ClassTag to communicate with parents. You can send Announcements, create an Event, set up a Parent-Teacher Conference or Volunteer Request, ask them to do or bring something for the class, upload videos and photos and share these with the parents, and send a private message to one or multiple parents.
Kindly check this article with the entire list of how you can communicate with the parents and the step-by-step instructions on how to do it.
