About this app

The TalkingPoints Teacher app helps teachers reach all family members and guardians, regardless of language, via text messages in 125+ languages. Our translation is done by a combination of human translators and machines, allowing for seamless communication with all of your families.

TalkingPoints helps teachers
• Communicate with non-English speaking family members through automatic 2-way translation
• Quickly send messages to one family member, a group of family members or to the whole class
• Keep their cell phone numbers private by sending text messages through the app
• Attach pictures, videos, polls, and files to text messages to share what students are learning in school
• Preschedule messages to go out when families are available to read them

“Teachers have busy schedules and don’t have a lot of time to learn how to use a new tool, but what I want other educators to know is how easy it is to communicate with parents through TalkingPoints. I love it and use it everyday!” - Ms. Cardenas, ESL teacher

TalkingPoints is free for teachers in the U.S./Canada. Sign up today!

The app was working great on my previous phone. When I got my new phone and apps were transferred over automatically, it stopped working. I reached out and after a few days of back and forth support I had a zoom meeting with 3 people from talking points. Together they were able to figure out the issue and are now working on a broader fix so others hopefully don't run into this same frustrating issue.

UPDATE: I fixed the issue myself. For some reason the permissions were automatically turned off after updating. You need to turn them back on in order for the app to work. Was fine now I only get a white screen. I have reached out to customer support and was only told it would get forwarded to texh support. I will be forced to cancel this app for my classroom.

Manually create classes and contacts list. It is arranged by student name. Translates automatically as advertised. It works well! Only dislike is that I cannot menu my contact list for easy editing. I have to enter a message screen, tap the contact from there, and then can tap an edit icon. Would be awesome if i could edit contacts from a menu.
