how my homework

Because Satchel One is such a flexible platform, we were able to offer a blended approach. We were still teaching physical lessons, but we also had students joining in via Google Meet.


While we did most of our communication with pupils via Microsoft Teams, we found that posting on Satchel One was key in keeping parents informed.

Used to be better

I like most people use my phone for most things and that includes looking at assignments. On the old app this was perfectly fine and you could look back on all the assignments you had in the past which is really helpful if you missed something from ages ago that wasn’t super important so you don’t catch up on it right away. However now in a recent ish update the only way you can view tasks from a long time ago or not immediately due within the next two weeks is by going onto a computer and logging into satchel through there. This is incredibly irritating if you have a huge project with a due date months away because you then can’t quickly remind yourself about the details of the task the teacher has set you have to log onto a computer and look through there. This wouldn’t be so irritating if they didn’t change it from being perfectly good to now this system of only seeing tasks a few weeks ahead or behind on the app, i simply cannot understand why they would make this change. Why would you remove features from your app. Furthermore because of this two week period if you have overdue tasks for more than this timeframe they also disappear so then you don’t know what you’re behind on because it checks itself off after a certain period of time. Very irritating for long time users who know how good it used to be.

Needs more options and more controls

I have a number of frustrations with Satchel One including that you have no comments or ideas page on your website Below are options/improvements I would like to see in the software: - Options with type and frequency of notifications, eg when something is due and hasn’t been completed - but not getting notifications for when an item is set, or notifications when it is classwork as opposed to homework. - A better completed button for students to mark items -rather than just hiding items. - Option for students to have a separate feed for classwork items - More options to set personal reminders or task/project milestones - Ability to colourise or set notifications on items - Alternate ways to sort and filter items - Option to load work against a task - even if the teacher doesn’t want it submitted online - Option for student to give permission to a parent to mark an item as completed and assist with the upkeep and maintenance of their Satchel One account - Filters for subject and searching them, both completed and outstanding tasks

Satchel one

I’m afraid to say that my wife and I really do not like this. We are unable to see what work our child has done and what content they have put in. Our child spilt water over there laptop so now attends the school hub to do there online homework. All we know is that they say it’s completed. What it was and how they achieved this we don’t know. The feedback from teachers is very hit n miss. We think that there is nothing that can compete with a homework diary that has to be signed each week by the parents to say the child has completed there homework , further more the home work is set , the child completed each subject showing the parents there effort and allowing the parents to help where possibly needed. This whole pandemic has really effected children with there effort but also the teachers as well.... the children apply less effort and the teachers don’t have to mark papers, thus meaning if the child hasn’t done the homework online then hey ho they haven’t done it....our child is probably like a lot of children if there’s a loop hole they will exploit it...and the loop hole is parents we gave no way of knowing what they have done what content and effort they put in and what mark or comments from the teacher they received. Sorry just do not agree with it.... exercise book pen and paper is always better .

About Show My Homework App

Show My Homework app is part of a school-wide service that can make the setting, administering and monitoring of homework much easier.  Schools subscribe to the service that can then be accessed on mobile devices and computers by staff, students, and parents. Show My Homework is available for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android devices. Show My Homework is a free organization and time management app available for download from the App Store and Play Store with in-app purchases. 

Teacher Review

The Show my Homework app is a sleek and streamline digital homework journal that replaces the traditional agenda or homework diary.

Why we love Show my Homework app

Schools using the SMHW app overcome the problems with homework journals. It is no longer possible for a child to lose the record of all of their set homework. It is the teacher's words that describe the task, not the child's distracted and rushed scribble. For the conscientious student, they can't let themselves down. For the unconscientious student, there are far fewer ways to justify a homework no show.  

Supporting resources are also managed by the SMHW app. Supporting notes and worksheets are appended as downloadable documents.  Multiple-choice activities and spelling tests can be created by teachers using the app's website. This gives teachers the tools to create quick, self-marking homework.

How can teachers benefit from the SMHW app?

Teachers benefit from an administrative point of view too. They don't have to allow as much lesson time to set it. References and helpful comments can be made throughout the lesson knowing that the task itself will automatically be pushed to children's accounts. Recording and tracking the homework is also easy in the teacher's part of the account.  

How can parents benefit from Show my Homework app?

Parents are also brought into the process. Children can't suggest they have no homework if their parent can see exactly what they have been set. This involvement doesn't have to be purely as an overseer either.  Seeing the homework tasks might prompt an idea for parents to make children's learning more enjoyable. A piece of history homework might prompt a visit to a local museum. A maths task might remind a parent of a tip that their own teachers gave them.

The differences between how the different types of users experience the app are mostly to do with what they can update. Parents have the ability only to read what students and teachers have added. Students can check off their tasks as they complete them. Teachers set homework, upload resources and record the relevant dates. Students and teachers can also easily pass on messages about the homework to each other.

Access to the actual homework is flexible.  A free to download Show my Homework app is available on both Android and iOS devices. A web-based version is also available and can be logged into from any internet connected computer. Inputting and accessing the information follows commonly used conventions so there is not much of a learning curve for any moderate user of apps.

Show My Homework app has been built around a clear vision of how technology can help everybody in the process of setting and completing homework. It is fully featured for its specific purpose but not bloated with superfluous features. This keeps it simple to use for everybody. Schools that adopt it will need to put a little work in at the start to ensure that it is universally supported and used by staff, parents and students.  The reward will be a much more effective use of homework.

not sure it does ease my workload as it is currently

Stella found Satchel One :

Good to share workload across a department and to track students' knowledge; parents like being able to see that too.

Clare found Satchel One :

Teacher of Science

Used Satchel One for 2.5 years

I would like to see the recurring feature added for regular HW (see Q9). I also think that expanding the quiz feature where questions can be posed that ask pupils to type a short, one word answer would be helpful. The multiple choice option is great, but they only make up a small portion of an exam paper so pupils need to be able to recall names etc. and not always chose it from a set of options. It is difficult to create a platform whereby pupils can write extended answers (Google Forms works to an extent here) but answers for 'state the name of...' questions could be loaded by the teacher when creating the quiz. Teachers would still need to be able to overwrite the mark given to allow them to give marks for misspellings etc.

Siobhan found Satchel One :

Used Satchel One for 4 years

It isn't perfect but the functions they have work really well, and there is lots in development too. The customer service is excellent, and they are very responsive to suggestions. The apps are easy to use and really enhance the system, for example it is super easy to tick off homework on the app if it is completed on a different website. Not 10 yet as the detentions module needs more development and the parent app should mirror what the teacher ticks off as completed not what the student ticks off.

Tina found Satchel One :
