Learning begins in the classroom and grows with a strong community. Showbie’s upcoming features will help you discuss, share, collaborate and keep everyone at your school in the loop, including students, teachers and parents.
It only takes a minute to create a group and invite teachers, students, or parents to join. The next step is up to you — discussions, announcements and collaborative projects are faster, easier and more organized than ever — and they’re updated live.
Whether it’s a class project or sports team, Groups help you share important files, coordinate activities and keep everyone on the same page.
Quickly share resources and discuss the latest school news with your fellow teachers or keep in touch with your global teaching network.
Create an announcement group for all parents in your class, and send out the next permission form without hitting the copier.
Advanced assignment settings let you tailor Showbie’s assignment workflow to your liking. Now you have more control over when assignments and grades are released, when students can make revisions and more.
Showbie’s new assignment settings allow you to quickly and easily set the status of an assignment to students: Locked, Live, or View Only. The new settings let you manage your entire assignment workflow with ease and control.
The assignment schedule option makes it easy to change student access at a set time. Let Showbie automatically handle releasing or locking your assignments — one less thing to remember in your busy day.
Use Showbie’s View Only assignment setting to let students see their work and your feedback when no revisions are necessary.
Instantly start a discussion in your class. Everyone can ask questions, collaborate, and share work. When it’s time to focus, pause the discussion with a single tap. While paused, you can send out general messages and announcements to your whole class.
The ability to share files with annotations attached means you can save time grading by enabling peer assessment and feedback between students.
Put up exemplary student work for your entire classroom to view and discuss by copying annotated assignments into your Shared Folder.
Hold real time class discussions when working on classroom projects, and pause the discussion any time to create general announcements or messages to your students.
