Teacher Review

Snap Homework is not a sophisticated programme but that belies the importance of it. Snap Homework ensures that the sometimes difficult task of setting and administering homework is simple, quick and efficient. These are the features that many teachers will appreciate. 

On starting the app for the first time the teacher is presented with a once only registration process, the school will be identified on the database, if it has been registered before or you can enter a new school. UK teachers note here that a zip code must be entered, so I entered a fictitious number. The app then guides you through a procedure to set up your class; the program shows various different grades but I decided to create a custom grade/year group, so that I had a choice to set up all the classes I taught and place them in a year group system.

When you have a class set up there are three methods to inform your parents and children, the easiest is to share a pin number which is generated by the application, you can however use the pre-styled email containing the Pin code with download links for the application; the third is a free registration that Snap Homework will provide for you.

Once the app is set up, which took a matter of minutes, I wanted to post some homework! The dashboard is the home screen and will display the icons that represent the classes that you have set up, by clicking on the icon of your choice you are then presented with a choice of three options; HW: homework, WS: worksheet and MS: message, each of which are self explanatory. The interfaces are the same for homework and worksheet with a useful integrated calendar to scroll through to set the date that the student will need to hand in the homework. Each screen offers you the opportunity to type some explanatory notes for the parents and children. I scribbled something down as an item of homework on a sheet of paper and then took a photo of it to attach to the homework section, ticked the box and a reassuring message “Homework sent successfully” appeared. This was sent immediately to all registered parents and students and they would be notified of the work set and the date for submission. Simple really, taking much less time to do than writing this paragraph!

Snap Homework has a set of other useful features to enhance and assist the process of setting homework: these include sending messages direct to parents and students in combination or separately, including a video message, a special facility to retrieve past homework and a unique ability to wireless print.

Snap Homework is an ideal utility programme for a teacher to quickly copy the homework set and ensure that all students and parents can be immediately informed of the date of submission and exact content, traditionally this is an area fraught with difficulty that can lead to a number of different interpretations! This is certainly an app for a teacher to have in their toolkit.
