Mobile apps have assisted in propelling the idea that they can do anything when it comes to online learning and management.
The question remains as to why more schools don’t integrate mobile apps into their budgets? When assessing 21st century skills, the management and understanding of mobile apps is critical. In addition, the practical integration of apps only helps to benefit students, families and teachers. In order for more independent schools to get on board, a school-wide discussion about the benefits is surely needed.
With the advance in technology and ease of owning a mobile device, traditional access to the Web has seen a sharp decline. Many families nowadays are taking advantage of online information through the use of apps, as well as mobile web browsers, much more routinely when compared with desktop computers or even tablets. By developing mobile apps that maximize school communication for classroom data, independent schools may augment family involvement. Moreover, it enhances individual scholarly execution by use of attendance tracking, class assignments, and instructor feedback.
