Bondi Beach Public School
Kidtasker
Junior Students - NSW
Kidtasker is an App designed to help kids set goals for themselves and achieve them. This could be anything from doing homework each week to practicing guitar or completing a chore at home. Kids can set their own goals and have notifications sent to their parents when a goal is achieved. Not only does this help kids get things done, it gives them a sense of achievement and makes them feel good about themselves. Parents can see how their children are performing without always asking their kids how they are going. This helps children be more responsible for their own tasks and learn to do things on their own. I would also like to have a dashboard on the Kidtasker website that allows schools to create their own account. Schools can send reminders to students about upcoming dates and events which is a great way of connecting the whole community.
