The BeHere App Automatically Checks Off Present Students

The BeHere app aims to make attendance-taking in schools just that little bit easier. Instead of having teachers stand at the front and call out names every day, this technology will sync with student's phones and check off their names the minute they walk through the door.

Considering how much time can be wasted each morning through taking attendance, this app is perfect for giving teachers more time to do what they do best: teach. If one adds up all the minutes spent asking who is actually present in the room on a day-to-day basis, it turns out to be a lot of time that could be spent doing much more productive things. If the BeHere app takes off (and as long as students have access to smartphones), this could be the attendance-taker of the future.
