Transparent Classroom provides online record-keeping and lesson planning for Montessori guides.

This app allows guides to: take and upload photos from their device to Transparent Classroom, view activity in the classroom, and record concentration/work curve data.

Parents in Transparent Classroom can use the app to view notes and photos of their child(ren), and receive notifications when more are published.

What’s New

Version 2.0.7

Some of you dutifully updated your iOS devices to iOS 13, then opened up the Transparent Classroom app to find it not working. Wa wa. It's because Apple changed some things with iOS 13 that broke our app and we didn't know about it. We've fixed the issue, and apologize for the inconvenience.

In the process of fixing the problem, we also broke push notifications. If the TC app suddenly became tight-lipped about updates about your child(ren), that's why. This release (hopefully) fixes that issue.

Thank you to everyone that has provided feedback about the app and how it could better suit your needs. Your feedback matters.

TC From a Teacher Prospective

The mobile phone app is a quick tool I can use to upload pictures of children from my phone to the app relatively quickly, but that’s all I can do. I would love to access more than that such as Daily Tracking(Napping, Meal Times, Diapers, etc.) from my phone if I can’t access my work iPad. Can we update this please?

Needs to be more user friendly

I love the way the online website is set up but the app is not user friendly or orderly like you would expect for something Montessori. To tag a child after taking a picture with the app I must exit and go online log in hit activity (not photos) and then I can tag the children. To use this photo as a profile picture I then need to go to children select the child edit click on the area for the photo and select. I must guess how the photo will be cropped.
It would be nice within the app after taking the photo immediately being able to tag a child. Having a box to check to make the picture a profile picture would be amazing!

Best tracking system

This is the best racking system for a Montessori classroom!! I love the ability to add photos, tag students and lessons at the same time. The user interface is easy to use and has a lot of functionality.
