Not too many years ago, a child missing school was the stuff of moms’ nightmares -- calling up other parents to cover missed schoolwork, and literally begging, borrowing or stealing other kids’ notebooks to photocopy notes and lesson plans for their little ones. This was also the time when enrolling a child in a hobby class meant obsequiously asking the ‘Know-it-all Aunties’ for advice (and feeling like a clueless idiot), or looking up notice boards at the supermarket and jotting down numbers from posters nailed on to trees. And ultimately, you flipped a coin and put your child in a class without any first-hand feedback or review.
Not anymore! The times have changed and today’s moms can access all this information with just a tap of a finger. As in almost every other area today, mobile apps have seriously made life easier for the modern mom with school-going kids.
Here is a list of apps that will help you plan and manage your child’s activities, both within the school and outside.
The Assignment Manager app helps a student keep track of assignments, classes, and deadlines. Your child can get see the assignments that are close to due date, those that are passed their deadline, and also mark off ones that are completed. Colour coding helps in getting all the information at just a glance. To help your little one stay organized and on top of the class, download now.
The Class Assignments app is a one stop solution to manage a child’s assignments in school. This is an app which needs to be used in close association with the teacher.
