Thanks to you and all of your great feedback, it has been a prosperous year with over 30,000 schools now using ScootPad!

We want to continue growing and improving with YOUR help! This past week we were invited to attend a developer/teacher collaboration event at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, CA. A group of teachers shared with us the importance of saving time and how this alone shaped their decision making process when choosing technology for their classrooms. We have listed a few of their top priorities below and what we are doing to meet these priorities:

Parent Collaboration
In the next year, we are taking parent collaboration to the next level! We plan to add a parent wall feature where teachers and parents can openly discuss assignments and student progress.

Automated Grading
ScootPad already helps you with grading by automatically scoring student assignments/practices as students complete them!

Formative Assessments
Teachers already receive real-time results about which concepts students are struggling with and can immediately tailor their instruction to address areas of weakness. We plan on adding more features/enhancements to make identifying gaps even easier!

Ease of Student On-boarding
Teachers want to be able to have students up and running in a few minutes or less when using new classroom technology. To address this, we are in the process of adding a way for teachers to quickly add their whole student roster and then have a separate “sign in” portal for students to log in with one simple click.

We would LOVE to hear your suggestions about our future plans as well as any other ideas you have on ways we can improve! Please feel free to post any and all feedback to our feedback forum.

Thank you again for helping make ScootPad what it is today! We owe so much of our success to our sophisticated users and their endless passion for learning!
