Teacher-Parent Communication Apps: ClassTag vs Bloomz

There are plenty of teacher-parent communication apps options out there, which puts teachers in a bittersweet situation. Comparing different platforms can be overwhelming, so we have created this article to answer the question: How is ClassTag different from Bloomz?

Our goal at ClassTag is to support teachers and to help them get to the information they need, efficiently and quickly.

How is ClassTag different from Bloomz?

Both ClassTag and Bloomz offer efficient ways to communicate with parents. However, ClassTag not only transforms how you connect with parents but also brings you free supplies for your classroom. Best of all, ClassTag is entirely free with all of its functionality, while Bloomz is charging teachers for a number of special features upfront.

“ClassTag is a communication tool that makes life easier for the teacher. It is a Signup Genius, Remind, calendar, and class website all in one!”

Beth Lafferty, 4th Grade Teacher at Lipscombe Academy

Teacher-Parent Communication Tools

Both ClassTag and Bloomz have a suite of tools for reaching parents, however, ClassTag does have some bonus features which make it a quick, effective way to reach every single parent:

  • Contact validation – receive alerts for bad contact details

Parent Support and Engagement

ClassTag has a suite of free tools that make organizing events and activities and getting participation.

Teachers using Bloomz may need to pay for Bloomz Premium to avoid some inconveniences.

ClassTag is completely free, for everyone. No up-sells, no gated features, and no subscriptions. Access to our incredible support team is also free. They are here to assist you via our promptly responsive online chat or email. To receive this level of one-on-one support from Bloomz you need to pay for a Premium account.

Reaching and Engaging Families without access to Technology

While both ClassTag and Bloomz have an automatic translation. ClassTag has unique features for reaching all parents.

ClassTag gives teachers smart, actionable alerts and recommendations. If a family isn’t being reached via email or mobile app, the chatbot-inspired assistant will recommend printing a personalized paper copy of announcements, reminders, and schedules to be sent home in children’s backpacks to those harder-to-reach parents.

A Truly Unique Solution To Teachers’ Out-Of-Pocket Expenses

Many teachers are spending $100’s, maybe $1000’s of out-of-pocket, just on classroom supplies. With ClassTag, you can finally get your students what they need and keep your salary.

Family-friendly brands want to support teachers like you. With the ClassTag Rewards program, they can do so through ClassTag as classroom supporters.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Use ClassTag for parent communication
  2. Accumulate “ClassTag Coins” as you engage parents through ClassTag
  3. Redeem your ClassTag Coins for free supplies and resources for your class

Classtag is free forever, so give it a whirl! Create a classroom and join our amazing teacher community at ClassTag!
