Apps That Can Help You Study
Technology is generally thought of as a distraction when it comes to getting homework done. If utilized correctly it can stop being a distraction and instead become a tool for learning. The Tutoring Center in Long Grove
has some suggestions you can use to study with technology.
Block out Distractions
It's easy to get distracted by social media websites and fun webpages when you're supposed to be concentrating on homework. Block out the distractions by using an app like SelfControl. This app allows you to block distracting websites for certain periods of time. Knowing that your email or favorite social media website is blocked will take away the temptation to check it every 15 minutes. You can choose the amount of time you want it blocked so you're sure you dedicate enough time to studying.
Math First Thing in the Morning
If you're the type of person who hits the snooze button on your alarm a few times before actually getting up, apps like Maths Alarm Clock can help you get rid of the habit or improve your math skills. This app will only allow you to turn off your alarm if you solve a math problem first. After solving a math problem you'll probably be more awake and think twice about hitting snooze. Forcing your brain to work early in the morning will also benefit you for the rest of the day.
Strengthen Foreign Language Skills
If you're studying a foreign language and want extra practice, the app Duolingo is a great option. You choose how much you want to study everyday and the app will remind you daily. The app provides rotating exercises focused on pronunciation, listening and translating texts to and from your native language. As you learn you will rack up points, go up levels and earn rewards, all of which make it feel less like studying and more like play.
