Workflow tool for assignment distribution, feedback, collection in 1:1 iPad classrooms

Overview

Showbie is an assignment app that allows for teachers to create and assign student assignments paperlessly. Students complete the assignments right in the app, while teachers view work and assign grades. A free basic or premium monthly version available for teachers.

APPROACH

Teachers begin using Showbie by downloading the app or going online to register and create an account. Once logged on, teachers enter in student information in their ‘assignments folder’ to create a class listing. Teachers then create assignments for students by selecting the ‘+’ icon. Teachers insert assignments by taking a photo, selecting one from their photo library, or uploading a file from external softwares such as Dropbox or Google Drive. They can add in comments, links, or voice notes to add instructions for students. They then select a due date and share the assignment to the ‘Shared Folder’ where it is instantly shared with students. Using the gradebook tool, teachers use the class listing within the Shared Folder to mark student work, assign, and export grades.

Students use Showbie by logging on, selecting the ‘Assignments Folder’ from their dashboard, and going to the Shared Folder where they can view new and incomplete assignments. They complete assignments by annotating them with the pen and text tools, or by recording audio responses. Both students and teachers view notifications, comments, and student progress from their notification feeds. As students complete assignments, teachers add them to their individual portfolios, which they share with parents.

PRICING

A free, basic version of Showbie is available for teachers. For enhanced annotation features, more storage, and the gradebook tool, a premium version costs $10 per month per teacher. Inquiries about school-wide licences can be made on the website.
