A tool for teachers that makes communicating with their classroom community (parents and students) easier than ever for homework (HW), worksheets and 1 to many messaging. Teachers assign homework with ease from their smart phone; simply, snap and send!
Unique Features in Snap Homework
Snap Homework is an interesting application – one that deals with keeping track of your homework and submissions so that you don’t have to miss any deadlines ever again. It also has a feature where the teachers can upload class documents for later references. The students would also be able to retrieve past homework assignments so that they may be able to refer to it in the future. If you have started with the app after a while, the ability to take a look at the past homework can come in pretty handy.
Snap Homework also has the option of sending messages and notification to parents, teachers, and students. Students can even communicate among themselves which is quite useful to older students, such as those in high school. The application also has a video feature and offers unique wireless print options for parents, students, and teachers. This is especially useful when you need to print out a worksheet for school assignments or similar tasks.
Students would also be able to create their own subjects for the units that are not in the default list. The best part about the Snap Homework app is the fact that it is free for use and is available in the Google Play Store. If you have just started using the app, you can always pay a visit to the Parent Instruction page, where you will be able to find tips on how you can navigate around the app and use it to the full.
The Idea Behind the App
Did you know that the credit for this app and the idea goes to a 4th grader?! While teachers were apprehensive at first, they soon were onboard with the idea, since there is no additional work of adding lists and other set-up processes.
Parents and students subscribe to their class to automatically receive school homework assignments, notifications and other important messages from their teacher. No more forgetting homework! No more “surprise” project due the next day that was actually assigned 2 weeks prior. Parents are kept informed without having to check or open their email, instead receiving the notifications as instant messages to their phones. When using SnapHW teachers can avoid the dreaded sick-day or vacation packet because any absent kid already has their homework assignment at their fingertips.
The app is a simple 2 part app.
1st for Teachers.
– They don’t have to do any extra typing or online creating of documents etc. They simple login, take a picture of the HW they write on the board that students in class copy. After the picture, they select the Grade/Subject, add optional description and select a due date and press send. All parents in the class will get the message with the Homework assignment.
2nd for Students
– They open the app, select their grade and can see the HW that was posted for the day.
Snap away 🙂
