Showbie

location_on Edmonton, Canada
Showbie allows parents to be connected to their children's learning experiences at a granular level. Showbie's innovative features include: allowing parents to listen to digitised audio feedback from teachers; and a screen recording facility that allows teachers to model concepts and ideas in video format, enabling parents to better support their children at home and engage in their learning.

I wanted something that I’d be able to use with all of my teachers, all of the children, with the parents and governors - the simplicity and the ease of Showbie is just immediate, it’s just so simple.

about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

To allow students parents and teachers to have greater transparency over student's learning and to allow all parties to support learning in school and at home. To remove frustrations from parents about not being able to support learning. Showbie and its innovative tools now allow parents to have complete transparency over their children’s learning, whether in school or remotely.

How does your innovation work in practice?

The features are completely integrated, meaning parents will get notifications on their devices when their child submits something to the teacher or if the teacher has submitted an assignment for their student. The innovative element includes the ability to have tutorial videos that are not only useful for children, so that they can go back and watch the tutorials many times over, but also support parents in understanding the methodology that has been used by the teacher to to teach their child. This means that parents can use the same methodology to better support the children at home.
The digital feedback option allows teachers to annotate documents with voice notes allowing parents to listen to feedback that has been given to their children. This means that parents have complete transparency over activities and feedback. The fact that this is available on any platform and instantly notifies parents means that the conversation at home is more about support than anything else.

How has it been spreading?

This has been spreading through word-of-mouth and through intelligent marketing campaigns aimed at schools in order to better support their parents. During the pandemic the use of the parent engagement features has been significantly high. Many parents have recommended this to other schools and other parents.
