hDub is the hi-tech equivalent of the traditional homework diary.
With just their school ID number and a special login code, students have their entire year's timetable at their fingertips, downloaded from the school's KAMAR database.
They can add, view and edit homework tasks for any class, view tasks by due date or by subject, and synchronize homework between multiple devices.
hDub is currently in a trial period with Wellington Girls' College, but interested schools can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any enquiries.
Classroom Countdown is a web app that shows how long is remaining until the next section of the school day. It provides a second-by-second countdown, with visual cues to show when the section is nearly over.
It is used by teachers to keep track of time during a period, which is particularly useful when period times are not consistent each day. It makes indicating the time remaining in a test very easy. In schools without bells it prevents arguments with students over when the period ends. Teachers are more likely to get to class on time at the end of non-contacts and breaks.
Students can use Classroom Countdown to improve their time-management skills, both before and during class. A parent can easily check to see if it is currently a suitable time to, for example, text their child. In addition, an overview of the school’s regular timetable can be viewed at the click of a button. No special login or password is required - anyone who knows your school’s URL can view the information.
