You may check your child’s homework daily, but how is he keeping track of what’s due when and for which class? Check out these great apps to help him not only manage his homework schedule, but to help him with reference materials, too.
1. My Gradebook
This app combines keeping track of assignments with keeping track of how well your child is doing in his classes. The fully customizable interface allows your child to enter information about all of his classes, add, color code, and keep track of assignments.
Your child can also indicate what type of grading system (percentage or points-based) is used in each class, so when he enters in the grades for each assignment, My Gradebook ($1) will be able to show him exactly how well he’s doing.
You’d think an app with procrastinate right in the name might not be one you want your child to be using, but this app is not only a fantastic task manager, but also helpful for kids who need to break tasks into manageable chunks.
The iProcrastinate (free) interface easily allows for creation of step-by-step directions for completing an assignment. Your child can input her ToDo list, set recurring tasks, and mark things as “Due Today,” “Upcoming,” or “Overdue.” Even cooler, the app can be synced to your child’s Apple computer, DropBox, or iCloud accounts.
