Showbie – an app for collecting, reviewing and annotating student work.

Showbie is an app which lets you distribute assignments to your students (with associated instructions and resources) through the creation of classes which your students can join and log into. Students can then submit their work through showbie which keeps everything organised together. It is possible then to add annotations, voice notes and text feedback directly onto students work for them to pick up. A colleague is currently using this successfully with their Year 13 class and I am looking forward to giving this a go and exploring its potential!

The video below provides a summary of how Showbie works.

 

There are a number of options for Showbie – from a free teacher account and a free school account through to Showbie Pro (a paid option for schools) and more details can be found here.
