The Importance and Challenges of Parent-Teacher Communication

Posted by William Bass on June 4, 2018 at 10:14 AM

To be an effective teacher it is essential to create an open line of communication between both students and their parents. Parents can offer information about the student’s context at home that may be affecting classroom behavior and performance, otherwise difficult for teachers to understand. By comprehending the whole picture of a student’s life outside the classroom, teachers are able to more effectively educate.

 

Additionally, open communication avoids awkward or hostile parent-teacher conferences in which the parent is caught off guard by a report that their child is not performing well. In the New York Time article, How Important Are Parent-Teacher Conferences?, New York City middle school teacher Luis Jose Vilson talks about how important it is to keep an open line of communication with parents in order to establish a positive relationship. He states, “As long as I’m doing my job and checking in with her on the phone, meeting her face-to-face seems easy.”

i-Comm Connect and WebRTC: The Future of Global Communications

Posted by Meredith Schmidt-Fellner on November 14, 2017 at 10:27 AM

i-Comm Connect is dedicated to transforming the customer service industry by harnessing the power of the latest communications technologies. Our patented VoIP calling solution, TACTAL, utilizes WebRTC to provide secure, instant calling for our clients.

What is WebRTC?

WebRTC is a collection of communications protocols and APIs (application programming interfaces) that allow for instant peer-to-peer connections over the internet in real time. The growing acceptance of this technology by industry giants demonstrates that we are early adopters of a technology shaping the future of global communications.

In September, Apple released major updates to iOS and Safari, including WebRTC compatibility, which makes TACTAL operational on all major browsers and smart-devices. All other major browsers had previously integrated WebRTC compatibility into their offering, except for a small plug-in necessary for Internet Explorer 11+, which is about 3% of the market. (To learn more about WebRTC browser compatibility, click here.) Because of the growing presence of WebRTC and real-time communications, i-Comm Connect continually improves and innovates our product to stay ahead of the market.

What is VoIP? How Can VoIP Benefit Your Small Business?

Posted by Bella Nalle on November 7, 2017 at 3:05 PM

What is VoIP?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) allows users to make calls over broadband Internet as opposed to leveraging traditional analog phone systems. The technology converts sound into digital packets andtransfers it through the internet to the desired end point. The outcome (i.e. placing a call) is nearly identical to traditional telco calling, however the multi-functionality, flexibility, and reduced costs of VoIP have driven increased adoption across the globe.

As more and more households say goodbye to traditional landlines and are embracing VoIP, enterprise companies have been cutting the cord too. But for many small and midsize businesses, the implementation of VoIP remains an uninvestigated option. No matter how small the business, there are many benefits to switching to VoIP such as enjoying the global presence enjoyed by larger enterprises.
