A Widely Used Solution

The PowerTeacher Mobile app seems to be taking over in a big way as it can be used in 50 states and 65 countries. As of right now there are over 10 million students that it supports. As discussed it gives teachers a way to really unplug from their desk while still maintaining the same level of management and organization.

The app hasn't been updated in over two years now, with its last update adding new features, making improvements to the user interface, and bug fixes. The app only has 2.5 out of five stars from users and it's clear it's in need of attention and updates once again. The customer comments are very mixed with some people experiencing issues with its stability and others have no problems at all.

How to Stay Managed

Besides the tools mentioned the PowerTeacher Mobile app also allows for such things as being able to enter score codes and comments for assignments, the ability to mass fill scores for assignments, you can view your class roster, sent alerts to students, view your student demographics, send emails to your students, and make use of the virtual chalkboard. Go ahead and update, create, and manage all your assignment categories and the app is supported by a password so you know the information is kept confidential and secure. It's important to note that if you want to use the app your school district must support the information system used.

This is the kind of app that has a lot of potential but it needs some work to reach that point. The framework is there and it’s just a matter of making it more reliable, user-friendly, and accessible.
