Ratings and Reviews
Show my homework (SMHW) is a brilliant app. It is a lot easier than carrying a full folder of just homework and reduces the amount of paper.
Apart the fact that, it sends you notifications at nine o’clock at night when it gives you an update on your homework. This is quite annoying because you would expect the notifications to come through earlier for example six o’clock so you still have time to complete homework if needed. As I share a room with my younger sister I go to bed before nine o’clock so this can become annoying and distracting, as when I go on my phone to check if I actually have any homework still to complete I end up checking my messages as-well. Apart from this, the app doesn’t usually lag or be slow when being used.
The only other problem I have come across on SMHW is the spelling test application. The problem with the spelling test is that is doesn’t tell you whether to do the American or English version of the spelling - it changes ever time - and most of the time you can’t tell what the voice is saying. I have tried this with headphones and without, on louder and quieter settings and still haven’t been able to tell the word numerous times. Also, if you click on the definition for the word (for example a homophone) you don’t know which one of the words it is. This can become very frustrating.
SMHW is an amazing app to help students get their homework done on time, with only a few adjustments to be made. Overall, a very good app😊.
Helpful App with ease of use
Easy to use and is effective way for students to receive homework.
I like the facility to link my child’s homework to my own phone diary. It’s great app and so pleased it’s been introduced. It allows students who find it challenging to write what the homework is quickly at the end of the lesson to feel secure that once they home they can view exactly what is needed. With handwritten journals pupils with dyslexia for example felt pressure when trying to rush at the end of each lesson (when homework is set)to write clearly without making any mistakes or misunderstandings in a short period of time . This app eliminates that problem
The messaging between teachers and pupils is also effective and as a parent I like to view this communication between them. It also promotes communication between teachers and pupils electronically instantly so if missing a lesson the pupil can find out what was missed without having to physically find the teacher and ask- particularly useful if the student is anxious to ask in person.
Only issue is sometimes my child has said the teachers can’t upload homework due to technical errors-however they do get sorted.
SMHW is great!!!!
Show my homework has been a great with my daughter to keep track of her homework and remember when to hand it in. It is given her a lot less fretting over when homework is due in and has definitely helped with revision. I’m very glad her school uses show my homework. Being able to see when homework is due in by getting the app myself is very helpful as in I know when she has hw to do and when it needs to be done. She really enjoys doing the quizzes that teachers set them as it really challenges her understanding of something she has learnt in the lesson. My daughter can sometimes go off into her own world in her head and this causes her to not concentrate, so using SMHW quizzes can help her revise what she may have missed in the lesson. Sometimes she will forget that she was set hw for a subject and SMHW has really helped and I think one reason she has no detentions is thanks to SMHW reminding her so I thank them a lot. SMHW is a great app totally worth getting well you have to get it in some schools but it is is totally reliable and trustworthy. 😀😃😉🙃
