Your Name and Title:

Alefiya Bhatia, Founder and CEO, Crescerance


School, Library, or Organization Name:

Crescerance


Co-Presenter Name(s):


Country from Which You Will Present:

United States


Language in Which You Will Present:

English


Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators, students, etc.):

PreK-12 School Administrators, Marketing/Communications Directors, Technology Directors, Teachers.


Short Session Description (one line):

Discussing possibilities for a school to Go Mobile with its own mobile app, and then to expand that further to connect with other Mobile Schools across the globe.


Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):

Crescerance is an EdTech startup with the goal of helping schools leverage the power of mobile to better connect and communicate with their parents, students, alumni, staff, and their other constituents. We create and service customized Mobile Solutions for PreK-12 private and public schools based on their specific needs and goals. Through conversations with schools across the country (and now increasingly across the globe) we are envisioning the creation of a Mobile School Network that allows schools to use their own customized mobile applications to not only increase engagement and collaboration among members of their own micro-community, but also to expand collaboration to allow for global participation of students and teachers with Crescerance Mobile Schools across the world.

In our research and pursuit, we have learned that the most prominent impediment to such collaboration has been the lack of a pervasive common thread that ties these micro-communities together in a way that induces engagement beyond geographies, timezones, technologies and cultures. When students and parents already use their school's mobile app for a variety of reasons, working with students/teachers in different cultures through this same app helps global awareness and collaboration occur more naturally. This session will enlighten attendees on our experiences with helping schools across the United States improve their communications through Mobile and will also focus on our vision for global collaboration of these micro-communities through a medium that our global society now uses most: Mobile.

This seems fascinating! I'd love to hear more about your vision for a 'Mobile School Network.' Do you work one-on-one with schools to customize their mobile site?

Alefiya did the conference app for an event I attended this summer... it was very well done! 

Thanks so much Lucy! :-)

We sure do Liz! Although that seems to be a smaller portion of what schools are wanting. The customized apps are definitely the most attractive piece - mainly because it makes school communications so much easier, and parents and other members of the community so much more involved.

Looking forward to sharing more soon!

Some highlights from our session yesterday are attached.

Thank you to those who were able to make it. If you weren't, feel free to view the recording at https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/recording/playback/link/ta... (it's only 40 minutes, not 1:40!)
