Jeff sits down with Chris Hoovler from CleverIOSApps to discuss the great app Teachers Assistant Pro
Teacher’s Assistant Pro is an application built for the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch designed to help teachers keep track of student discipline issues. This app is customizable and easy to use. If you are looking for a great way to organize all of your classes and if your administrators ask you to keep track of student behavior, this is the app for you.
The interface for Teacher’s Assistant Pro is very clean and basic. You can import your students name by hand or by creating a .CSV file on a spreadsheet and importing it either through an email or iTunes. (There are great video tutorials to help you with this step).
This application isn’t just for students with poor behavior. Once you select your students name, it gives you an action screen where you can input a description of the incident. The fact that this is completely customizable means that you can use this for both negative and positive behavior.
Once this information is in, you can choose to email your students parents. Teachers Assistant Pro creates an email that you can fill out in further detail. If you are using this on an iPhone, a button is given to make a phone call home.
You can also share data with other Teacher’s Assistant Pro users via email or backup your data in iTunes. You can also export all your student action records via email.
