Chat apps have become an indispensable communication tool in many areas, also at school. Classroom chats form an integral part of everyday school life, and homework is often assigned via text message. Since conventional chat services systematically collect personal data, their use for school purposes is highly questionable and may violate applicable law.
With Threema Education, schools and other educational institutions benefit from all advantages modern instant messaging offers without compromising the privacy of students and teachers.
Thanks to a framework contract with educa.ch, it’s now easier than ever for public Swiss educational institutions to use Threema Education. As a Specialist Agency of the Swiss Confederation and the cantons, educa.ch negotiates framework contracts with commercial service providers in order to promote digitalization in the education sector.
The framework contract ensures legal certainty and reduces the acquisition effort. And since Threema Education doesn’t generate recurring costs, educational institutions benefit from planning security in any case.
