It is always such a joy to hear from someone who wants to celebrate how Flocknote is making a difference at their parish! Amanda McAlarney, the Social Media Coordinator for St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, reached out to us recently to share a win.
In addition to coordinating her parish’s social media, Amanda is the lead catechist for 2nd grade Sacramental prep. Faced with the challenge of moving her religious education instruction online this past year, Amanda found success in using Flocknote to engage her young learners, and wanted to share that success, because she believes that a similar approach could be utilized by churches and catechists across the country.
“One of my goals in developing this program for my students (one of which is my daughter) was to make it easy to navigate, so that the average second grader could complete the lessons as independently as possible.”
Amanda schedules her class communications to go out to the parents of her students. Then, after the lessons are sent, she relies heavily on the Note Analytics to keep track of who is or is not opening her class communications. She also finds it beneficial to see the date and times when the questions are completed.
