Has Dinamikom (and how) contributed to better communication among kindergarten and parents?
When the Principal introduced us to Dynamics in one of the Educational and Health Councils, there was a nuisance.
We often discuss how to improve the co-operation of kindergartens (primarily nurses!) and parents, to bring our parents a closer look of our work and to inform them more effectively about changes or important things. Also, as a kindergarten (an institution with multiple facilities in a wide area like ours) can connect better and more efficiently. Today, social networks are the easiest way to communicate quickly, but I personally think that they are way too public. I believe that the lives of our children, children's communication, and their photographs are not intended for a "wide audience".
Let me just get back to that nuisance after Dinamikom was introduced. Opinions were divided, which was to be expected. Some thought they would move us from face to face communication, and some were willing to try. When we introduced Dinamikom with our parents, the reactions were mostly enthusiastic. And most importantly, they all liked it and wanted to use it. With the agreement that the Parents notice board is still "in function".
Today, after several months of use, I have to admit that my expectations have been confirmed and this way of communication has contributed to better communication among kindergartens and parents. Especially because of the availability to publish photos, which we do often. I must mention that we had very good communication with our parents even before Dinamikom. They think that personal communication is the first and most important, while virtual is to be only (positive) complementary. The most positive comments were the constant availability of notifications because parents, often in a hurry, forget to look at what's being said on the Parents notice board. And in the evening, when children are asleep, they can read everything in peace.
As a teacher, it is a great advantage to have more time for personal conversations about a particular child when we meet with parents, which is in my opinion - most important. I would like to point out the speed of information availability among kindergarten staff, and we also reduce the paper waste because everything is available in electronic format and is printed only when really needed. Instead of a conclusion - just a sentence!
Dinamikom further emphasize what's already good!
Ana Romek, educator
Dinamikom is an excellent way of cooperation with parents which is very important part of the service from day one in Čigra kindergarten. It's been reviewed and easy to use, parents have all the information available for 24 hours, and all kindergarten teachers and professional teams are enabled to direct communication with parents, sending notifications, photos…
People who designed and are developing Dinamikom are very accommodating, they provide excellent support and are always planning something new and interesting.
We started with use of Dinamikom e-noticeboard in Čigra kindergarten 6 months ago. Back then we included 2 educational groups, and as of October we include all 10 groups at our 3 locations. This speaks most about our satisfaction with this kind of cooperation and communication between parents and kindergartens.

Dinamikom e-notice board system used by kindergarten Bajka as a virtual noticeboard proved to be an ideal tool for achieving a higher level of cooperation and partnership with parents, as well as it demonstrated that educational institutions are in step with today's modern era in which technology is a way of life. Using Dinamikom, personal contact among subjects in kindergarten has not disappeared, in fact, it is now more concrete, more detailed and more efficient. Although Dinamikom is a modern communication tool and it is very easy to use, its implementation in the everydays work of the institution lasted less than a month. Good sides of e-noticeboard has been recognized by all Dinamikom users, and cooperation with parents without it - is now unimaginable.

Dinamikom is an excellent addition to noticeboard for parents. Information is also reaching those parents who forgot to look at kindergarten noticeboard or have been absent for some time. We don't have necessarily to be "friends" in any social group for everyone to get the right information on time.
I thank Dinamikom on technical support because they are always at disposal and service. We are extremely pleased.
Mirjana Rizvan, teacher
Although we were initially somewhat skeptical about how parents would accept this form of communication, today we can say that its introduction has greatly contributed to raising the level of kindergarten service. The system first and foremost guarantees security and discretion, easier and faster communication with parents and teachers, conducting a survey that is particularly useful and important to us and presentation of educational work to parents through professional texts and photographs.
The app is easy to use and thus tailored to IT beginners. That's why parents have all the information and content easily accessible through their mobile devices and laptops. We are happy and proud to be a part of the great Dinamikom Family.
Kristina Šajatović Ledić, Principal
We are pleased with the Dinamikom system due to the simplicity of setting notifications, quick photo upload, and easy adding, deleting, and changing groups for individual children. There is also practical group for kindergarten educators i.e. employees. Once we got started, we regularly use the system on a day and week basis.
Our parents are also happy with the system, at significant percentage they regularly follow notification. As a non public system (with increased security) it has is a great plus, and we present it to parents just that way (as opposed to Facebook group, which we also have), mostly refering to photos of children in activities.
Ana Koren Friščić, pedagoginja
The curricular goal of Roda kindegarten amogst other things, is the strengthening of partnership and co-nurture-parenting. Dinamikom greatly facilitates cooperation because it is always available and we have an insight into who reads are posts so we can react in time.
