Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that SnapSchool is a social network that lets kids post their homework questions or help other kids with their homework. It’s for students in the sixth grade and above, but there are no age restrictions in the terms of service. Kids create an account by entering a username, password, birth date, and grade level. They can also connect through their Facebook login, in which case their full name is visible to anyone using the app. Kids earn tokens and gems for answering other kids’ homework questions and for their answers getting “up votes”; then they can redeem tokens and gems to post their own homework questions. Additional token and gem packs are available as in-app purchases. For details about the kind of information the app collects and shares, read the privacy policy.

SnapSchool is a Education app that is designed for those 13.  The app has an overall rating of 1 out of 5 and a learning rating of 1 out of 5.

SnapSchool is available for Free On The Following Devices:

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Kids can’t learn much of anything, unfortunately. Though the idea is that kids can post homework questions and get input from others, there’s no way to know whether the answers are correct, and there’s not much explanation of how the answers were found, so learning falls short. Instead of using SnapSchool, students would be better served by small-group or classroom-based social media options for homework discussion.

The Support Level for SnapSchool is about a 1 out of 5.
