Posted October 05, 2019 07:27:31With all the new technology and social media in our lives, it can be hard to keep track of who’s paying attention to you and what you’re up to.
That’s why some parents and teachers are using the internet to keep tabs on their kids, as they search for a teacher to bring in a new student.
However, it’s not just the students who are looking out for each other.
Parents and teachers in high schools across the country are also checking in on each other in real time.
It’s called a “virtual teacher” and the concept is gaining momentum in the past year.
This week, two high school teachers in Utah announced that they were creating a virtual teacher app called VRKinder.
The app will let parents check in on their students’ progress, check up on progress on a project, and even share their notes on a task.
Kinder is a virtual classroom, and the app will allow teachers to stay in touch with students and get in touch about schoolwork and project assignments.
This is the latest trend in online education, as we look to connect more parents and educators.
“The internet is a place where people can find information and have an outlet to share and share with each other,” said Josh Schaffer, founder of Virtual Teacher Network, a company that helps parents and schools share virtual resources online.
“It’s an alternative to traditional paper books and textbooks and online tutoring.”
The new app will be free for parents to use, and will allow parents to contact virtual teachers in real life to share feedback on homework, project work, and a whole lot more.
“When it comes to virtual classrooms, it helps teachers and parents to be able to stay connected and be in contact with their students, which is a big thing for parents,” said Schaffer.
“They can have real-time updates on what their students are doing, what they’re doing, how their students do it, and also their students can share notes on tasks and projects they have done.”
As of October 11, VRKiner is in beta and has more than 1,000 registered users.
The company is currently in the process of expanding to include a full suite of tools.
“I don’t think it’s a new idea,” Schaffer said.
“There’s been a lot of interest in virtual teachers over the last few years, and this is the first step toward making it really useful and accessible.”
