Multilingual Texting Platform

TalkingPoints is a multilingual texting platform developed by a California-based nonprofit with the same name, specifically to link teachers with students’ parents who are not native English speakers. To use the free service, teachers must first log into their account from a browser. They can then type a text message—such as a homework reminder or announcement—and send it to individual parents or a group using their cellphone numbers. Parents—who must sign up to get the message—receive it on their phones as if it were a normal text, and they can respond to the teacher as a text. TalkingPoints translation is available in more than 20 languages. Costs: Free for teachers; schools pay for premium features
