10 Online Tools for Summer Self-Education


10 Online Tools for Summer Self-Education

As another term is wrapping up, you must be thrilled that you’ll finally be able to enjoy your days without having any responsibilities associated to your studies.

However, you shouldn’t forget all about your education throughout those months, since all the effort you invested into the exams for the term that’s now behind you will be worthless if you don’t remember anything you’ve learned.

You surely know that studying is not only about getting good grades; it’s all about growing as a person and obtaining knowledge that you’ll use throughout your life. With all those summer distractions that are yet to experience, your memory can easily fade away, so you’ll need to freshen up your base of information from time to time.

The following tools won’t take much of your time, but will help you stay prepared to handle the following educational challenges with ease.

1. ImageQuiz

The best way to remember information on long term is by freshening up your knowledge with fun quizzes. ImageQuiz allows you to upload your own images or use content from the web in order to create quizzes. There is no need for registration, so you can create a quiz within minutes and test what you have remembered from all that studying you went through.

2. Map Tales

By creating map-based stories, you will not only make your summer trips more fun, but will also improve your storytelling skills, which are extremely important for academic writing. You can also use this tool to create visual presentations of historical eras or the journeys of fictional characters.

3. Draft

This free word processor enables you to collaborate with other users. You can use it to practice your academic writing skills and get feedback on your content. Draft will help you stay away from distractions and find the things you have written without any effort. Another cool way to use this tool is for creating daily entries about your summer experiences.

4. I Wish You To

It’s easy to forget about your classmates when you’re out of school for months, but don’t forget that their friendship and support helped you get through difficult times during the school year. I Wish You To is a great tool that enables you to create unique e-cards that you can send to your classmates (or even teachers) throughout the summer.            

5. Sketchlot

Don’t you miss the whiteboard during summer? Of course you don’t, but this tool is much more than a replication of a whiteboard. It enables you to draw and sketch online, which will make all information easier to remember.

6. Visme

This free online tool will help you create infographics, animations, and presentations on any topic you can think of. During the summer, you can use Visme to create informal and fun presentations, which will help you get used to the tool and use it like a pro when the new term starts.

7. Buncee

With Buncee, you can create multimedia presentations that will help you remember all important information you’ve learned during the previous term.

8. Pinterest

Of course you’ll use Pinterest during the summer, but did you know that you can do that with an educational purpose in mind? Find resources associated to your favorite subject and pin them to your board. That will make you look cool, but will also help you learn in a fun and relaxed manner.

9. Essay Eagles

Summer is the best time to read some of the books that will be mandatory for your next literature class. That will save you from a lot of frustration during the next term. However, you should also write the book reports while the impressions are still fresh. If you struggle with writing, then Essay Eagles is the right resource to turn to. The professional writers you can hire at this website will help you write the essays and improve your academic writing skills during the summer.

10. GeoGuessr

Geography can be very fun when you learn it through a game with an educative curve. This is the perfect game for summer mornings – it will help you explore the world and get more excited about this class.

Increase your learning potential during the summer!

Your summer break is the perfect time to discover that gaining knowledge and improving your academic writing skills can be fun. Without the pressuring deadlines and the anxiety caused by your teacher’s comments, you can learn whatever you are interested in without forgetting what you have learned during the previous term.
