To give a 10 means there is no room for improvement. I'm very happy with Showbie, but there are many things I'd like to change.

Andreas Dybwad found Showbie:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    The transparency makes it easier to remind the pupils (and send a hint to their parents) when a task hasn't been completed, thus increasing productivity, and thereby improving attainment.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Since all kinds of input can be shared with ease, spreading good examples is just a click away, and pupils learn a lot from their peers (and the opportunity to become a model for others to follow is a great reward and boosts the effort of some).
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Teachers teaching the same subject in different classes give each other access and have the opportinity to copy lessons and tasks.
  • Not significantly reduces teacher workload
    Since everything the pupils produce is available to the teacher, some sort of feedback is expected with every input. Even though a lot more time is spent reading and watching what the pupils have handed in, the increased knowledge of their strengths and challenges makes it worth it!

Kim Hammond

High School Teacher

Westlake High School, United States

Used Showbie for 7–12 months

Mar 2021

It's a hugely valuable app during the pandemic because of how many of my students are learning remotely (we are 1/2 remote, 1/2 in-person). In schools that have the ability to lock the screen, I can see it continuing to be a great assessment platform even when all of the students return to in-person.

Kim Hammond found Showbie:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Kids don't lose their assignments. It increases accountability
  • Slightly builds student knowledge
    It works best as an assessment tool for us because we can't give instant feedback (such as in Classkick)
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    It makes it so easy to grade assignments and provide feedback on assessments.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    All of the assignments are organized and in one place. And it's an efficient way to grade since we have iPads with Apple Pencils.

Used Showbie for 7–12 months

Mar 2021

I haven't had any issues with it whatsoever and it is fit for purpose. The help pages online are extremely clear and easy to follow and any queries I have raised have been dealt with promptly and efficiently. I attended a training webinar which was extremely useful and well presented and this encouraged me to complete further online training and become a Showbie certified educator and improve my use of Showbie further.

paula atkinson found Showbie:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    During all lockdowns it has been our online learning platform. The children liked that they could message their teachers directly and get extra help if they needed it. For the children who did engage with the online learning, we found they did go back to see what feedback we had left them, even if it was only to say well done. They also corrected any mistakes they had made. On returning to school, these are the children who are accelerating back to where they were before lockdown
  • Slightly builds student knowledge
    not sure
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    More likely to put worksheets directly onto Showbie rather than photocopying. Weekly spellings and homework also go on so less chance of homework being lost or 'eaten by the dog'.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    biggest impact is less time spent stood at the photocopier

Showbie has changed the way that I teach and makes assessment of work so much more productive.

Rhianwen Bedford found Showbie:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    As students can record their work they can hear it to see how they can improve on a regular basis. They can also see and hear their progress over time.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    As a teacher I can add links and examples of work to individual folders.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    I can add examples of work for the students and can add as folders to different classes, rather than adding everything individually. It also saves on photocopying and storage organisation.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    As above, the ability to copy folders and not have to photocopy endless papers is great.
