By Showbie Inc. Free

Developer's Description

Used by over 2 million teachers and students worldwide, Showbie is the fastest, easiest, and most effective app for assignments and feedback in your iPad classroom. Find out how easy it is to assign, collect and review student work from thousands of compatible iPad apps, or have your students complete assignments with Showbie's built in tools. Provide rich feedback using digital ink, text and voice annotations right on images and PDFs, and then add your students' best work to personalized digital portfolios that can be securely shared with parents. WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING. "Showbie is my number one can't live without app. It makes the iPad workflow process a breeze. I especially love how it works seamlessly with so many other apps." -- Kristen Paino, Lead Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School. "I don't need to convince my colleagues that they need to use this app -- it sells itself. I like that it gives me the flexibility in how I choose to grade my student's work, especially with the voice notes feature. There is no single third party app that I would rather champion." -- Suzanne Lustenhouwer, Teacher and iPad Coordinator, Apple Distinguished Educator. "I love that Showbie is so versatile that the youngest of students can use it independently, yet it is appropriate for older grades as well. The ease of use makes it a great workflow solution for classes with iPads." -- Kristi Meeuwse, Kindergarten Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator. KEY FEATURES FOR TEACHERS & STUDENTS.
