Introducing PowerTeacher Mobile for the iPadô!

One of the fastest growing classroom management solutions is now available for the iPad. With PowerTeacher Mobile, teachers are no longer constrained to their desk or laptop when using the gradebook. They can record student scores and make observations about student progress from individual student desks, the gym, playground, at a sporting event or while on a field trip.

[UPDATE: 10/20/2011]

After upgrading to Version 7.0 of PowerSchool, PowerTeacher Mobile for iPad stopped working. As of today, we have it up and running again!

If you used the program last year, you will need to update a setting. If you are installing the app for the first time, the correct information will be obtained from the server automatically.

To update your settings, first, touch the 'Settings' button that appears on the Login Screen. Next, touch the 'Server' link down the left side of the window. Change the Port Number to '443', and make sure that the SSL Enabled option is ON.

Touch the 'Login' button in the upper left corner of the window. You can now log into the program!
