Show My Homework is available for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android devices. Show My Homework is a free organization and time management app available for download from the App Store and Play Store with in-app purchases. 

Teacher Review

The Show my Homework app is a sleek and streamline digital homework journal that replaces the traditional agenda or homework diary.

Why we love Show my Homework app

Schools using the SMHW app overcome the problems with homework journals.  It is no longer possible for a child to lose the record of all of their set homework. It is the teacher's words that describe the task, not the child's distracted and rushed scribble.  For the conscientious student, they can't let themselves down.  For the unconscientious student, there are far fewer ways to justify a homework no show.  

Supporting resources are also managed by the smhw app.  Supporting notes and worksheets are appended as downloadable documents.  Multiple-choice activities and spelling tests can be created by teachers using the app's website.  This gives teachers the tools to create quick, self-marking homework.

How can teachers benefit from the SMHW app?

Teachers benefit from an administrative point of view too.  They don't have to allow as much lesson time to set it.  References and helpful comments can be made throughout the lesson knowing that the task itself will automatically be pushed to children's accounts.  Recording and tracking the homework is also easy in the teacher's part of the account.  

How can parents benefit from Show my Homework app?

Parents are also brought into the process.  Children can't suggest they have no homework if their parent can see exactly what they have been set. This involvement doesn't have to be purely as an overseer either.  Seeing the homework tasks might prompt an idea for parents to make children's learning more enjoyable.  A piece of history homework might prompt a visit to a local museum.  A maths task might remind a parent of a tip that their own teachers gave them.

The differences between how the different types of users experience the app are mostly to do with what they can update.  Parents have the ability only to read what students and teachers have added.  Students can check off their tasks as they complete them.  Teachers set homework, upload resources and record the relevant dates.  Students and teachers can also easily pass on messages about the homework to each other.

Access to the actual homework is flexible.  A free to download smhw app is available on both Android and iOS devices. A web-based version is also available and can be logged into from any internet connected computer. Inputting and accessing the information follows commonly used conventions so there is not much of a learning curve for any moderate user of apps.

Show My Homework app has been built around a clear vision of how technology can help everybody in the process of setting and completing homework.  It is fully featured for its specific purpose but not bloated with superfluous features. This keeps it simple to use for everybody.  Schools that adopt it will need to put a little work in at the start to ensure that it is universally supported and used by staff, parents and students.  The reward will be a much more effective use of homework.
