Today’s students have their eyes stuck on the monitors of their computers, most especially on their phone screens.
Because of the advancement in technological development, students have become too dependent on these devices. But we all know that gadgets
were actually made to make education more convenient.
To prove my point, College students can do away with the negative impact these widgets can inflict if they make sure that these materials are not misused. Here are certain reasons why technology can be beneficial and why you should use it to do well in your college.
Through technology, instruction and learning are made easily accessible for the students. College students can view their course syllabus, probably notes and other educational material online. They are open for viewing anytime and anywhere for as long as the student has internet connection. They can even use their very prominent smart phones for this.
Because of the smart phones, you can also save notes and study reminders in a portable item. Plus, with the fact that most of you students almost never forgets to bring your phones, it will always be there for you to check on. Other than that, while these data are stored in your mobiles, it can also be transferred. A fast exchange of files between you and your classmates can happen as well.
Disseminating information is made extremely easy and quickly which one of the things you should take advantage of with technology. Once you learn how to utilize these inventions properly, you’d be surprised to know how much it would speed up your learning process and information intake in the most enjoyable way possible. And you know what that means? I smell gifts for a college graduate.
Now that you know what you can do with your smart phones, equip it with these apps to up your hi-tech learning experience. That way you won’t just be another one of the dumb kids with a smart phone in pretty college graduation dresses and a hollow head.
This app is like an extension of your brain. It stores whatever input you encode in it, even snapshots of images you want. It is a very portable reminder for you that allows you to synchronize the data with all your other devices and also the internet. Moreover, the apps helps you become a productive and organized person even in your professional life after college.
Similar to Evernote, Studious can be used for note taking tasks and homework reminders. Besides that, you can log in your class schedules and the application automatically configures your phone to keep silent during class hours and reminds you of approaching homework deadlines and test dates. With this app, you won’t miss a thing.
Finally, we have Trello which allows the user to organize with group mates on school projects. The app allows you to manage tasks and assign responsibilities to members while keeping track of the progress. There you can set deadlines and collaborate timetables which can instantly be updated when changes are made all the while notifying the members.
These applications are very much free to use so no need to worry. Education should be made fun, timeless, and convenient!
