Follow-up on Progress & Close the Loop at Home
Only parents can see via the browser a 24-hour view of student screen time at school and home on devices with Habyts.
No more questions about how much time students are spending on screens throughout the day. Parents get real time visibility of and useful insight into screen time usage and student activity.
Track School Tasks at Home
Parents can view Tasks assigned by teachers to students – and can even check them off if needed.
Now you, your students and their parents/guardians have the same view of what school tasks have been assigned, checked off by students and approved by teachers.
Block time-wasting apps, games and websites when students do homework – but still let them use educational apps and websites.
Parents no longer have to wonder, hover or nag when kids have homework on the computer. So no Minecraft or YouTube while they’re using Wikipedia or Microsoft Word. Parents can schedule Study Time for all day, at certain times, or turn it on with a click.
