A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Excellent way for kids to demonstrate independence in recording homework, projects, and assignments legibly, by due date. Settings easily adjust to a variety of school schedules. Reminders help kids stay on track to complete tasks.

Ease of Play

Adults may need to set up class and schedule information, as well as monitor assignments and homework. Older elementary-age kids should be able to enter simple assignments and mark them complete on their own.

Consumerism

In the free version, family-friendly consumer ads appear on the bottom of the screen; upgrading to a paid version eliminates ads.

Good App

It is a good app for keeping track of homework. It has interesting features that are also very useful.

What's it about?

With MYHOMEWORK STUDENT PLANNER, kids in elementary school through college have a free way to keep track of any assignments they need to complete. Tasks are organized by individual class or specific calendar date, and kids can set recurring activities to repeat. Parents and teachers can customize settings to organize assignments by individual period or block-based schedules. When setting up assignments, kids can prioritize them and view them as complete, late, and upcoming. Kids can also set reminders. A built-in rewards system provides incentives to kids who complete their work and consistently add new assignments to their planner through a service called Kiip, though parents will need to enter an email address to use it. Users can upgrade to a premium account by paying an annual fee, which eliminates ads, offers customizable themes, and allows documents to be uploaded to classes and specific homework assignments.

Is it any good?

This free education homework planner is an excellent way to teach kids at an early age how to organize and keep track of homework and assignment due dates, all on their own. Many kids have trouble keeping track of a traditional assignment notebook. For kids with access to technology in school, this app will encourage kids to be more independent in adding tasks to their calendar and in planning for projects and upcoming tests. In the beginning, teachers and parents will need to be involved to monitor assignments and due dates, as well as to enter specific setting information to customize schedules. And manually entering all assignments if teachers aren't using the companion software can be tedious. However, the myHomework Student Planner app is a very valuable solution for kids and adults, especially those with executive functioning and memory difficulties. While parents and teachers may need to spend time customizing settings and checking the app daily for accuracy with young kids, it serves as a fantastic strategy to help students learn how to organize their homework, which promotes independence for high school and college. The app is heavily text based, so kids will need to be able to read in order to view the name of their assignments, or ask for help, or use the device settings to have text read to them. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how myHomework Student Planner can help kids stay organized by keeping assignments in one location, while technology in general can improve overall neatness, reduce errors, and offer reminders for those who have difficulty remembering deadlines. How might this app work better than a paper planner?

  • Talk about ways to stay organized and avoid procrastination. Can using a homework planner app help kids track school assignments on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis so that they can get items finished on time?
