myHomework Helps Students Keep Track of Assignments

myHomework is a free app that students can use on the web on iPads, on  iPhones, on Android devices, and on Windows 8 devices to keep track of their school schedules and assignment due dates. myHomework syncs students' schedules and assignments across all of the devices that they use.

On myHomework students can enter their course schedules in day and time format (example: History meets at 10am Monday) or in a block schedule format (example: History meets during block 1 every other day).  Assignments that students enter into myHomework can be assigned a level of priority in addition to the due date and the assignment description.

I tried myHomework on my iPad and one of my older Android tablets that is running Honeycomb (Android 3.0) and it worked fine. That said there are some comments in the Google Play store suggesting that myHomework may not be fully updated for Jellybean (Android 4.0+).

Applications for Education
If you're looking for one schedule and homework reminder service that you can recommend to all of your students regardless of which mobile operating system they use, myHomework is worth trying out.

A To-Do List Without Opening a New Window

There is no shortage of free and simple to-do list services available on the web. One problem with many of them is that you have to open a new window or a new application to use them. To Do List from the Chrome Web Store is an exception to that pattern. To Do List operates within whatever Chrome browser window you have open. Once you have To Do List installed (it takes just seconds to install) just click on its icon in your browser toolbar to open it and start adding or deleting items from your to-do list.

To Do List for Chrome makes it easy to add, delete, and rearrange items in your list. To add a new item just type it in. To delete and item just click on the trash bin next to the item's name. To rearranges items just drag and drop them into order. In your browser toolbar To Do List for Chrome keeps a small running display of the number of items currently in your list.

Applications for Education
One of the biggest obstacles to to-do list adoption by students is getting in the habit of using one. Often to-do list services require a separate log-in, new window, or new application to be useful and students feel like they "can't be bothered." To Do List for Chrome doesn't have any of those obstacles. To Do List for Chrome is so easy to use that there is really no excuse not to use it.
