Few days ago we’ve included Explain Edu among the applications useful to make the distance teaching more pleasant.
Even if we are at the end of the school year, we suggest another tool that could be a new step for the last lessons and an investment for future projects.
We are talking about Showbie.
Showbie is an App used by many teachers all over the world. It is an easy and quick solution to assign tasks and give feedback in virtual classes, on iPad.
With Showbie it is possible to gather and correct student work as at the end of a real lesson.
To make it real, Showbie allows making some vocal memo and text comments directly on documents sent by students. The private chat is also a very useful support since it ensures an immediate interaction during the lesson. Then, it is possible to have a good cooperation teacher-student: it is a fundamental issue especially now that it risks losing contact with kids.
Further, Showbie allows exchange of views with parents or family’s students. They can be invited to see their son’s work and be always informed about class activities.
Another supplement in this App is a broad range of digital inks you can always use for corrections. For this reason, if you use Showbie on iPad, Apple Pencil and Doodroo film match perfectly to make it more effective. With Apple Pencil it is easier to make comments and give clearer feedback, since through its tip you can select different colours depending on the kind of error to note. Also lines thickness can be different to highlight some errors among the other ones.
At the same time Doodroo ensures a perfect grip on the screen and gives the impression to review a paper check.
Showbie is really perfect for all those teachers who are tired to fight against online platforms. This tool finally makes the pair digital teaching/learning successful.
It works very well also with many other apps and then it is very versatile.
Trying is believing! Mainly if you want to make an impression before summer holidays. Showbie is for free and you can download it on this link
