How I Use It
I have been using this app for quite a while now and I don't know how I'd survive without it. I love that it's easy to use and quick to update. It only takes a few minutes to input my assignments and it's done! I can even put in all the upcoming assignments and special events for the month or year so I don't forget anything. Talk about giving folks enough advance notice!
I've received nothing but positive feedback from parents who are trying to give their children more responsibility for their learning, but still want to remain in the loop. It's been great for my kids who aren't so accurate putting items in their agenda, this lets the parents know what's truly coming up and not have any surprises. It's alleviated some of the panicked emails that they didn't know that a test or project was due and they had no idea about it.
I really do love this app and think it's been a spectacular addition to the tools I use to keep my kiddos on track with their assignments. The feedback I received from the class that piloted the app was phenomenal! Several parents actually went out of their way to stop me and thank me for giving them such a useful tool. Especially since some of them travel and it allowed them to know ahead of time things they wanted to help their child finish up before they went out of town.
The only improvement that I think could be made would be to have a teacher app so that I could use that to list items on my phone instead of having to use a web browser. Not that it stops me from using the app, it would simply be quicker and easier. Again, I love this app and hope more folks find it and fall in love with it too!
