With Snowflake(web) teachers can manage students, create, access and send their own curriculum specific touch screen lessons activities with custom content for the classroom over the internet. The teacher can send practice assignments and assessments. The teacher can review the progress of the entire class and then analyse the work done by each student on each assessment.
As a teacher, you can use your own content with several different lesson types. Your lesson activities are automatically saved, so you can come back to them anytime. You can even upload them to the community and send them to someone else. To learn how and know more, please read this guide.
Students can access the lesson activities sent out to them by teachers, work on them and create lesson activities for themselves to play with.
