Why "edtalk?

We know that engaging parents can be challenging. That’s why we developed “edtalk to make it easy for schools to create and send great stories efficiently and effectively and get parents involved.

What’s more, having all those stories in one place means the last-minute rush to produce materials for those all-important open days, evenings and other recruitment events will be a thing of the past. 

All your stories, on tap, always.

But why choose “edtalk?

We’re not just another one-trick schools app. With “edtalk you can manage all of your digital communications, in one. Web, social, email, SMS, the lot.

And with built-in editing permissions, every member of staff can be a story-teller too. That means more parents actively involved in the education of their children, and that means better educational outcomes.

Imagine that.
