Drawp for School now on Chromebooks
by App Report
It's no secret that Google's Chromebooks are becoming more popular in schools, although they have been largely restricted to (sometimes sophisticated) web sites instead of tablet apps. However, with Google's efforts to include support for Android apps in Chrome, things are changing.
Moondrop Apps (of which our own Julie Brannon is a part) have translated their well-regarded drawing and collaboration app Drawp for School (check out a review for iOS) for use with Chromebooks. From their press release:
Drawp for School is a creation app with a built-in collaboration platform and automatic classroom workflow management. It simplifies teacher workload by automatically distributing, collecting, and storing assignments in the proprietary Drawp cloud.
With the release, teachers can now take advantage of all the creation, workflow, and storage capabilities of Drawp for School, combined with the simplicity of Chromebooks. The instructional whiteboard app can be used with both touchscreen and touchpad Chromebooks. It’s perfect for BYOD classrooms as students can simply and securely log in on any device with the app. Teachers and students can increase engagement with any assignment by adding voice stickers, art, photos, and text. Teachers can also give audio or visual feedback and monitor student collaboration.
Apart from being a good app, it's an interesting step moving from tablets to Chromebooks, and I strongly suspect we'll see more apps move in this direction in the future.
