Description: The School App (www.theschoolapplication.com) is a student planner app that lets schools utilize the commonly used technology that students bring in by allowing them to use their phone, tablet, laptop or computer (in BYOD initiatives) to manage their school workload and organize their school day in a more effective manner.
Pain points/ Needs:
- To-do lists
- Student Information Systems
- Student Organizers
Platforms: iOS, Android, Web, Desktop
Usability: Teachers often feel that the disorganization of some of the students within the class holds back their progress and there is a need for them to plan their school work more effectively and also keep the entire day’s activities organized. To address to this need, the School App was created which allows students to utilize the technology that they use the most and bring to class.
This application is a modern twist to the traditional school homework diary. It can be used by all students as it is available on diverse platforms. Students can use it to record, monitor and track their homework and assignments. They are sent automatic reminders to remind them about the homework that is due. They can view their school timetable, important school documents, news items, videos and calendar events on this app. Teachers can send unlimited messages directly to students’ mobile phones. The School App is unique and can be customized to each individual school to suit their particular needs.
Walkthrough: There are three different types of accounts within the School App system namely, Administrator, Teacher and Student.
Schools are provided with one Administrator account, which they can use to access the system’s Admin panel and create as many other accounts as needed. The administrator can create more accounts of any of the three kinds, create groups and assign them to students, add/edit school subjects, create/modify timetable, upload Word, PDF docs, new articles, videos to the app, send messages to individual students or groups, modify the navigation bar, color scheme, school logo and homepage text on the app.
Teacher accounts are used by teachers to use the app’s features without modifying anything. Teachers can send messages to individual students or groups and upload Word, PDF docs, new articles and videos to the app.
