What's New in Version 6.2
Added Student Alerts
This is what my administrator calls a time waster
The iPhone version is useless. I don't need to take attendance with my phone (that's pretty much all you can do). I need to be able to email parents a quick note or post a class announcement on the run. Nothing looks more professional than fiddling with my phone during morning drop off! (Dear parents, I'm not texting, I'm taking attendance). I have computer access for morning attendance. Although, the computer version isn't much better- 30 seconds to take attendance on paper/15 minutes to login, find the right section and fiddle through different codes. 2 1/2 minutes lost each week versus an hour and fifteen minutes...
P.S. administrators- do you want the teachers to teach kids or blog about the work we can't get finished because we're on the computer writing updates...
Decent, but could be better
Most aspects are good. One big problem is that when I enter grades and switch from one student to another student by clicking on them, the page scrolls all the way to the bottom where I can't see any students. It works well if I click the 'next' button and enter the students in order, but when I do them out of order, the page jumps all the way to the bottom. It would be nice to have this fixed.
The lesson plans are working well. It would also be nice to see the procedures, teacher notes, and materials tabs.
Needs More Features
This app works well for what it does. However, there are many important Renweb features that I can't use from my phone. It's ridiculous that I can't e-mail parents or access discipline from my phone. This access issue is a bigger problem because Renweb has their site rigged so that you can't use it from your phone. This is a really big problem when I take students on field trips, but my guess is that Renweb really doesn't care about that. It's more about how they can extort money from parents and students.
