Some people find it easier having everything in one video instead of smaller chunks but you can click the built in navigation buttons (if watching on a laptop in Youtube) to jump about the video to see different chapters and save time. (YouTube version below & school filter friendly version is below that)
Since we started doing the free version of Blippit IO we’ve been so pleased at the response and uptake from thousands of users. It was the right thing to do for everyone what with time-limited trials being a headache for everyone.
This weekend we did the cloud equivalent of a full skeleton transplant with Blippit IO. It was pretty intense but in order to enable schools who were behind older proxy servers it had to be done and hopefully it will pay off for those schools now who may not even realise the restrictions being applied to their web use.
All things for a reason though we like to think. As part of the ‘transplant’ we also had to re-allocate a big chunk of Blippit’s resources to ensure that schools who had upgraded to unlimited everything were getting the best service possible. We’re really pleased with the results now even though we had to skim some resources from our many lovely free Blippit users.
If, like us, you know that it’s ‘a bit challenging’ sometimes to get parents to fill in the mid-year Parent Survey that you’ve created based upon Ofsted’s Parent View form, this may be an innovative approach that will go down well.
FREE TO BLIPPIT SOCIAL SCHOOLS!
This is very low friction from a parent point of view because school is already engaging parents via Facebook so delivering and completing the survey actually ‘in’ Facebook makes the process nice and easy.
Data collection and collation is all taken care of too. The moment a parent hit’s SEND your data is saved and automatically presented for easy interpretation by SLT & Governors.

[toggle title=”Is this just for the parent survey?”]No. This was just an example of a survey that we created. You can survey parents on any topic you need to at any time[/toggle][toggle title=”Can we have space for comments” class=”in”]Yes. You can have unlimited space for comments.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”How can we filter so only our parents are able to take part?”]Easily done – give out a school code/password to each family by text or letter and make entering that code a part of the survey.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Is it one response per child or per parent?”]A survey can be set up to cater for either.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”How do we do a follow up of survey participation?”]We can include a compulsory question for people to enter their full family name so as not to rely on a Facebook profile names which may in the odd case be less helpful. Knowing who has responded and who hasn’t will be much simpler. Participation in surveys can also be incentivised via FB – i.e. we can use a prize draw feature to generate a random winner as a ‘thanks for participating’.[/toggle][toggle title=”What’s the cost?”]This is a free and ‘on demand’ service to all schools who use our Blippit Social service. Schools who don’t use our Blippit Social Service can buy in ti Social Surveys at the rates below. (Small school discount of 20% applies if you’re a Nursery, Infant or Juniors only school)

Here’s how it would look on your school Facebook Page timeline except customised to your school
Below is one version of a survey which would normally just be seen in Facebook so that parents don’t get stressed moving off to another website but for this blog post we’ve placed it here as well. You’re welcome to fill it in to get a feel for it 🙂
