In an effort to keep students, teachers and administrators more informed and better organized, Chalkable, a new education technology application, has created a way to do just that – all while curating the best edtech apps into its app store.
Chalkable’s feed, much like a social network, keeps students up to date on what assignments are due in the coming days and if they need to study a bit more on a subject based on the student’s latest grade. Students can also schedule their work in the app’s calendar.
Teachers can track their classes through the technology by being able to grade students’ assignments, take attendance, and also use its email feature to stay in contact with students and faculty.
Due to the large amount of apps available for educators, Chalkable organizes the listings by subject or relevance to the teacher. The app also orders the other apps according to which is the most efficient and the best technology.
The various departments in the school can have their student progress gauged by administrators – whether by grades, discipline, or attendance. Administrators are also track the teachers’ app budget.
Teachers and administrators can sign up for the app for free, but students are charged $10, which lasts a year. Chalkable is still in the beta stages of the student, teacher, and administrator, and is working on, parent and district features.
