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.

Publisher's Description

An app designed and concept created by a 4th grader Rushyl from the San Jose, CA. Snap Homework helps Student/Parents and teachers to see class Homework (HW) via their phone w/o adding any extra work for teachers. The app was created by the son and father with the help from VarshylMobile to solve a simple yet massive problem faced by many students. The idea came about when Rushyl was sick and was on the bed for 4 days. The parents were busy and could not get to the school every day and on the phone his friends from 4th grader did not copy the entire HW either and the other friend was on vacation.

Then Rushyl came up with Snap Homework (formally known as Rushyl Homework app) thought of creating an app that his teacher who has a smart phone can simply do something with their phone and while sitting home the student can see the Homework (HW).

Soon after the 4th grader presented the idea to teachers they got real excited. But teachers did not want to do extra work like many software, online portals, complicated apps out there to add to their list of things to do for the class. While they wanted to keep the teaching methodology of having students keep the habit of writing their Homework (HW) when in class. They did not want to remove this taking notes and writing HW experience entirely. Snap homework does not replace the in class teaching and homework taking methods but enhances it with technology.

While parents loved it as there are times when kids don't copy the HW correctly and there is no way for parents to know about the HW till the day the students get it back with Red Marks all over for missing and not copying it correctly.

And it helps most parents to schedule their days, kids activities and other after school events as they will know the HW before they get home in their smart phone.

The Snap Homework app is a simple 2-part app.

For Teachers - They don't have to do any extra typing or online creating of documents etc.

They simple login, take a picture of the HW they write on the board that students in class copy.

  • After the picture, they select the Grade/Subject, add optional description and select a due date and press send.
  • All parents in the class will get the message with the Homework assignment.

For Students - They open the homework app, select their grade and can see the HW that was posted for the day.
