Showbie Review

What is Showbie

Showbie is the fastest, easiest, and most effective app for assignments and feedback in your classroom. Showbie combines all of the essential tools for assignments, feedback, and communication in one easy-to-use platform. No matter which devices you're using (from iPads to Chromebooks to iPhones), Showbie works for you.

Showbie can be set up in minutes. This means less time spent struggling with your tech setup and more time for teaching and learning.

Showbie can be a great way to support and organize classroom learning.  Students can also submit work to you through Showbie. It has the ability for students and/or teachers to leave voice notes with assignments. Multiple teachers can create classes within Showbie, so that students can see each class that they belong to. Then, they click on the class to see the assignments that the teacher has created for that class.

Both students and teachers have access to the wealth of tools that Showbie offers in order to complete the work. The children have been getting familiar with these tools in school so that they know exactly what to do when they need to use them independently. All of these tools are accessible whether you use the Showbie website to complete tasks or whether you work on the iPad app. The ‘pinned’ tools are moveable bubbles that allow the students to accurately label and comment on particular areas of their work. 

How will teachers benefit?

It’s easy for teachers to create classes and import all of their pupils into a shared digital space. When the class is set up, teachers can collate assignments in to separate folders.

Teachers are able to give due dates/times for assignments, thus not allowing work to be turned in late. Work is timestamped, so that the teacher can see exactly when it was turned in to Showbie. So many good features! And, super easy to learn how to use it!

Teachers use Showbie (and also the class discussion) for Flipped Classroom and Blended Learning. 

How will students benefit?

Students have all of the same capabilities as their teachers. They too can upload all of the different file types to the shared assignment folder. Students can then choose to keep them in Showbie or upload them to Google Drive or Notability, if they have their own method of organization that they'd like to use. 

Is Showbie free for teachers?

A free, basic version of Showbie is available for teachers.

The pro version includes more features for sharing feedback with students and parents, developing student portfolios, creating a gradebook, collaborating with colleagues, and hosting class discussions. 

Can Showbie be accessed on any devices including phones and tablets?

Yes – Showbie is a web-based platform accessed on any web browser. There is an Apple App for iPad, but the program is mainly accessed online at

Final Thoughts

Showbie is an app used by teachers to assign, collect, and review student's work. In one easy-to-use platform, Showbie allows you to create a collaborative and interactive classroom so learning can happen in any environment - in class, remotely, or anywhere in between.
