Assignment notifications to the students
I've been trying the assignments with one of my students, and though I can create them and see my student's progress, she doesn't get any notification when I create the assignment nor she sees it in her app, in the assignment's options it says I can send a reminder in 12 hours, maybe I'm missing something out, is it possible that my students get notified when I create new assignments?
The thing is most of my kids don't have emails of their own since they're between 8 and 12 so either I'll have to instruct them to create one or teach them how to map the one duolingo provides in their phones, I feel either way would be a pain for both children and parents :(
That's fair. Maybe having a day or an email asking parents for their assistance? For my kids a few of them are around 12, and the parents are very involved in their education. So I sent an email home with the sign up instructions and said we'd try to get set up in class and if there were any concerns at home I'd try to have an alternate assignment.
