QTS_Unit3_Question 3

It’s because WhatsApp is easy to operate, informal and is everyone’s familiar tool for digital conversations that it is increasingly popular within schools for internal communications. Ostensibly, having a communication tool like WhatsApp which allows you to exchange information quickly and efficiently between school departments in a less bureaucratic way than email is a great idea. We at 9ine are constantly reminded to steer away from the pitfalls of “post-boxing” – the practice of sitting happy on an email you have sent, content with not having a reply from the other end because your job here is done. Having a secure and integrated internal communication tool, such as Google Hangouts Chat, is great for driving productivity and accountability for the way we communicate with each other. The use of WhatsApp in schools, however, is not often internally managed by the organisation themselves.
