Appletree is a new educational platform that was recently introduced at ISTE 2016. Apple tree is a classroom communication tool that makes it super easy for teachers to communicate with parents and enhance students' learning. Parents can use Appletree to stay updated about their kids learning activities, assignments and events, Appletree is free of charge and is also available for iOS, Android and the web. Here is a quick round-up of some of the things you can do with this platform.
You can create a class and ask your students to join using a generated code. In this way, you will be able to easily send updates and reminders, share assignments with push notifications, add events with photos and videos, notify parents in case of an emergency, keep parents informed with 1-touch progress reports and many more. You can also message parents privately with one parent at a time or organize chat groups. The translation feature is another great feature that will be added to the platform soon. It will allow users to translate to and from different languages. ‘Appletree is an invitation-only platform managed by teachers who hand select and approve members to join their classroom groups.
