It’s that time of year again. Students are back in school and whether they are in the middle school, high school or at the college level, we have some apps that will them get organized and help parents keep track of their star pupil.
1. MyHomework – Getting organized is now a touch screen away. With the MyHomework app, students can organize and keep track of classes and assignments. The app also color-codes items according to their due date and syncs to a desktop to keep all of a student’s information centralized. We can’t guarantee they’ll go to class, but at least with this app, they’ll know what they are missing when they decide to play hooky.
2. iHomework – If you are an iOS user, you will love iHowmework. Similar to MyHomework, this app helps students can get organized and stay on top of assignments, exam schedules and reading lists. iHomework also integrates with Questia, an online research library, providing students with quick access to reading materials for all of those major projects.
3. TeamSnap – Keep track of the active students in your life. Coaches, you’ll be able to manage rosters, schedule practices and communicate with players. Parents, you can use TeamSnap to map out game and practice locations, check in on your child’s stats, and organize all their after-school sports activities. Go team go!
4. Life 360 – Want to know where your child is every moment of the day and keep them safe in the process? There’s an app for that. Life360 registers a child’s cellphone number, tells other family members where that child is and maps out “safety points” and “threats” in the immediate vicinity. Now if only it could get them to do their homework once they arrive safely at their destination.
5.
