We’re excited to announce that our school communication app called Updat-ed has been upgraded. The app has moved to a more robust, futureproof platform and will present some new features. To get access to the new Updat-ed app, please follow the instructions.
The current environment has reactivated a thought I’ve had for some time about the use of humour in school communications. Simply put, it really doesn’t exist. COVID-19 has seen a rise in humorous content across society, from memes to song-word substitutions.
At our March 4 eNews launch PD, we spent some time looking at how people are drawn to engage with content and all the things working against the traditional school newsletter.
"We put a newsletter out once a week and have a website and Facebook page". Mmmmm that's not a strategy. A few years ago I asked a number of schools what their communications strategy was.
