Is It Any Good?

There's a lot to do with this app: You can tag assignments by topic, due date, and level of effort, and while that's a daunting workflow to set up, it could be a stellar middle school and high school tool. It's definitely a lot to learn and a lot to get set up. To use iHomework 2 most effectively, kids have to set up their courses and their teachers and get into the habit of tagging and rating their assignments every time they record them in the tool. That process might seem daunting at first, and the tool on its own won't teach kids critical skills for self-reflection, self-monitoring, and time management. Still, with some scaffolding, this tool contains a ton of flexible, customizable features that can help kids think strategically about how to manage and address their homework load. With so much to keep track of, this is likely a better fit for older students, but younger students with great adult support could definitely use this tool as a way to practice and hone strong study habits.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
