SAN FRANCISCO, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drawp for School today launched the Android version of its popular classroom management tool. The creative tablet app is COPPA-compliant, can be used with multiple subjects and saves teachers classroom time by automatically collecting, organizing and storing assignments in the secure Drawp cloud.
Drawp's interactive whiteboard turns any subject into a creative learning experience—enhanced with drawing, painting, voice stickers and text. SimpleShare™ technology allows real time collaboration between teachers and students—all with a single swipe. Sharing with Drawp is easy for students and teachers. Automatic collection, organization and storage simplifies time-consuming administrative tasks for teachers.
"We saw a need for an easier way to manage digital content in the classroom," notes Ana Albir, Moondrop Entertainment CEO. "Mobile devices are an increasingly important component of education, and Drawp provides a unique way to incorporate digital creation without disrupting class time or adding extra work for teachers."
With both iOS and Android accessibility, Drawp For School is available for all major tablets and is compatible with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) classrooms. BYOD is a growing trend that encourages student-centered learning, cost-savings for schools, and is currently used in approximately 85% of K-12 and higher Ed classrooms.
"Management is key to making tablets a successful learning tool for my classrooms," says Emily Bradley of Angleton, Texas' Westside Elementary. "Drawp is user-friendly and it makes it easier for me to keep up with students' work, as well as for them to share work with one another. It also helps me with assignments, and inspires creativity in the kids as well."
