As new tools have provided opportunities to broaden and deepen forms of classroom communication and instructional design so can the degree of communication with parents. It’s not just options it’s a whole new landscape of interaction and feedback.

I also think it need not mean huge more work for admin or faculty but rather a new form of sharing and writing content.
